Cybersecurity technology and practices are undergoing a sea change. While COVID-19 quarantines literally turned enterprise networks upside down overnight, a new wave of online attacks put enterprise data at risk. Today’s security operations center, once focused entirely on perimeter defenses, is now abuzz with new disciplines, including threat hunting and incident response. And yesterday’s security technologies are being remade with new capabilities, including artificial intelligence, automation, and orchestration.
Attend and you’ll learn
Cybersecurity’s Next Wave: What Every Enterprise Should Know
Get the answers to these and many other emerging cybersecurity questions at Dark Reading’s first-quarter event: Cybersecurity’s Next Wave: What Every Enterprise Should Know.
This free, all-day online conference, produced by the editors of Dark Reading, offers an online “crash course” on some of the latest tools and best practices for fighting the next generation of security threats.
You’ll hear from top experts and practitioners on how to secure remote systems, even after the COVID-19 crisis has settled. You’ll learn about emerging technologies for orchestrating your security systems and automating repetitive processes. You’ll find out how AI and machine learning can help your organization identify sophisticated attacks more quickly. And you’ll get advice on how to prepare and deploy the new wave of cybersecurity technologies and practices in your own enterprise.
Among the topics that will be covered:
- Strategies for improving security in remote and work-from-home systems
- New methods for securing links to customers and suppliers working remotely
- Emerging best practices and technologies for automating cybersecurity processes
- Methods for linking and orchestrating existing systems to improve overall security
- Tools and processes for collecting and filtering security data
Strategies for using AI and machine learning to improve threat detection
Advice and recommendations for penetration testing and threat hunting
Future directions of security technology – and how to prepare for them
Join us for a full-day virtual event on tools, technologies, and processes for ensuring the cybersecurity of your enterprise’s most sensitive information.
Agenda at at glance
The cybersecurity threat landscape changes every day. As a result, technology for cyber defense and incident response is changing almost as rapidly. In this keynote address, a top technology expert discusses some of the newest trends in the evolution of cyber technology, and offers recommendations on what technological developments your enterprise should watch for in 2021 and beyond.
The cybersecurity market is teeming with new waves of technology, new vendors, and new categories of products that promise to revolutionize data security. As a security professional, how do you keep up with these new technologies, how do you choose which ones to implement, and how do they work in real-life, operating IT environments? In this keynote address, an experienced security practitioner discusses the process of evaluating new technology as well as the benefits and pitfalls of bringing next-generation tools into your enterprise.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left most enterprises struggling to secure a plethora of remote systems and networks that were never meant to carry sensitive data. As the overnight IT infrastructure of 2020 becomes the permanent infrastructure of 2021, what technologies and processes will enterprises use to secure those remote systems? In this panel discussion, experts will offer advice and recommendations on how to build a secure remote access strategy that works for the long haul.
Many enterprises have seen the value of endpoint detection and response, but many are now seeing a need for detection and response capabilities on other systems, including networks, cloud services, and managed services. This concept of extended detection and response, also known as XDR, is spawning a new range of technology choices and implementation challenges. In this panel discussion, experts offer insights to help enterprises understand XDR, as well as the challenges and pitfalls of implementing these emerging technologies in an already-complex IT environment.
For many enterprises, the challenge of 2021 will not be which new cybersecurity technologies to implement, but how to make their old cybersecurity technologies work better together. In some cases, enterprises are seeking better ways to integrate and orchestrate their disparate security systems. In other cases, organizations seek to better automate the operation of these security tools so that they can detect new threats faster, with less human intervention. In this panel discussion, experts will offer advice on how to make orchestration work in complex IT environments, as well as recommendations on how to automate security tasks and processes.
