In partnership with:
Mapping devices, apps and data for zero trust endpoint security
- Tuesday, 22nd February 2022
- Registration 2.25pm to 4pm
- Location: Online
Cybersecurity has become a key priority for any CIO or IT leader. The proliferation of remote working, cloud services and personal devices put an end to managed corporate devices and the firewalled company network or VPN. Organisations are moving to zero trust security models to effectively secure devices, applications, users and data regardless of location. Mapping your endpoints is the first requirement to get there. This session will explore
- why asset management is foundational to many security frameworks
- why asset management is a problem and what to do about it
- what approaches to asset management work and don’t work
Our Keynote Speakers
Chris Cochran, Cybersecurity Expert and Advocate, Axonius
Redefining the Role of Asset Management in Cybersecurity
The line between IT and security is blurring. Seemingly overnight, a foundational understanding of what devices, users, and cloud instances exist has jumped in priority for CISOs.
Even with an overwhelming array of tools, IT and security teams struggle to manage and secure a complex sprawl of devices, users, cloud services, and software.
In this session, you’ll hear Chris Cochran explain why asset management is still such a challenge and how they’re leveraging existing data to understand the full context of all assets at any given time. See how they are able to move away from reactive, disruptive, day-to-day firefighting to focus on the bigger picture.
