Throughout 2020 organizations widely adopted a zero trust architecture in response to the pandemic and it is now fast replacing traditional VPN approaches.  As the zero trust approach continues to evolve, the challenge for organizations in 2021 and beyond lies in how to implement this approach across environments, both in the cloud and on-premise.

In this session, Clive Finlay, Chief Technology Officer, Symantec Enterprise Division, will discuss:

  • The evolution of  zero trust in a pandemic world
  • The next chapter in the zero trust framework and new technologies to consider

Defending the New, Borderless Enterprise
Gwyndaf Davies, BigFix Technical Adviser Lead for EMEA, HCL Software

The ‘borderless enterprise’ is one that is symbolized by the rapid move to remote work, high adoption of cloud-based services and applications, and the great number of dispersed mobile, IOT and other devices. Security has become inherently more complex, simultaneously increasing the challenges for security professionals and opportunities for criminals.  So how can you keep your critical assets and data secure in this new world?


  • Join this panel of practitioners and security experts as they explore:
  • The supply chain: What’s key to managing your third parties and navigating the complexity of contracts and relationships?
  • Patching and standards: How can you keep up to date with device compliance and cybersecurity standards? 
  • BYOD: How can you balance policies vs. employee experience?

Prioritizing Cyber Investments Using a Risk Quantification Approach
Amit Mehta, Cybersecurity Advisory Lead, Middle East & Africa, Mastercard

Cyber-attacks, data breaches, and regulatory fines have become commonplace. Despite growing investment in security, many organizations still struggle to manage cyber risks. An average company deploys 47 security tools and still gets breached. Technology alone is not the answer to this problem. Cybersecurity is much more complex and needs expert focus, careful thinking, and senior management commitment. Organizations must take a holistic approach to cyber risk management and make decisions based on the potential business impact.


The session will discuss:

  • Overview of the regional cyber threat landscape
  • A holistic approach to cyber risk management
  • Why we need to quantify cyber risks to make a good investment decision

Building the Culture of DevSecOps

DevOps is a cultural movement that was started in order to remove silos and enhance how teams collaborate and the role people, process and tech plays in this space. But now we are in the era of DevSecOps, which inserts cybersecurity smack in the middle of this culture - and natural tensions emerge. In this exclusive session, a veteran CISO walks through this culture of DevSecOps, with focus on specific topics such as:

  • How DevSecOps can be effective at truly "Building in Security from the start"
  • The culture of collaboration and how it is at the core of the DevSecOps movement
  • Key security challenges and how they can be met by adopting DevSecOps
