The top 5 security priorities



LEVEL: Intermediate


We’ll start at 17:30 with mingle. The meeting starts at 17:45. We’ll have a short break around 18:30 for food and drink.


Security has clearly moved into the top 5 priorities by enterprises, government organizations and every organization that depends on the digital world for it's lifeblood.

Boards and executive teams are struggling to understand what needs to be done to protect their organizations and manage risk effectively.

Security teams are struggling to understand the rapidly evolving security landscape, to formulate effective, pragmatic security programs, and to explain and measure security in business terms.

We will discuss approaches to these challenges and how to organize, manage risk and explain security to business executives in business terms.

We will also discuss how the security professional needs to evolve to growing threats and the increasingly pivotal role they play in leading the business to address the tectonic shifts occurring in the digital and cybersecurity worlds.
