Modernizing Client PCs to Cope with Today's Security Challenges
Yasser Rasheed, Global Director of Enterprise Client Sales, Intel, Intel Corp

Many businesses are implementing software security solutions. But as hackers get more sophisticated, threats are attacking the hardware layer. Hardware-based security features built-in to the hardware provide an important layer of protection for business devices, applications, and data. The Intel vPro® platform includes groundbreaking technologies that accelerate and scale security beyond software or human based approaches alone. It delivers hardware-enhanced security features designed to help protect the other layers of the computing stack. Intel® Hardware Shield—available on the Intel vPro® platform—provides enhanced protection features to help protect against below-the-OS attacks and safeguard apps and data. Intel® Hardware Shield also includes advanced threat detection that offloads routine security functions for lower user impact and continued productivity. Select the built for business platform that is right for you.

IoT Security - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Aseem Jakhar, Co-Founder -Director Research and Developent, Payatu

New technologies have been a boon to all industries specifically in cost and efficiency optimization. Organizations have been incorporating new tech over the years. While the CISOs have been busy managing and securing IT assets, this new tech is slipping in unnoticed. Today an organization's infrastructure not only includes traditional machines but a host of other interesting and small devices or things. It is a smorgasbord for attackers to pick and choose the weakest links to get and stay inside an organization. On the other hand, the defenders have no insights into the new attack surface. Join me as we discuss the journey of a security professional over the changing times, what lies ahead and how to start taking action now.
