CISO & CIO Panel Discussion: Enterprise Security is a Business Problem, Not an It Problem

Creating and managing a secure organization is quickly becoming a business nightmare.

Increasing levels of automation have increased vulnerability to security breaches. It's not just the infrastructure that needs attention, corporations also have to deal with insider threats and human error, which constitute more than half of security breaches.

Employees need to be made aware of the appropriate security issues and policies that must be put in place. To what extent are companies prepared to face this challenge? Are they aware of the risks they face? Our panel of Enterprise Security experts will discuss these points and more.
