Speech Topic & Synopses
Security has grown increasingly complex and it’s clear no matter how many new niche security products we add to the security stack the attackers are still winning. Add to this the ongoing security talent shortage of more than one million unfilled jobs and it’s clear we need to start thinking differently about the security approach forward. One that takes defenders from a position of victim to that of champion. Embracing a Zero Trust framework and leveraging converged security platform architectures such as Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is the future you can evolve to today.For many, implementing Zero Trust can be a daunting task with too many starting points to move forward. But it doesn’t have to be. Join Forcepoint’s John DiLullo for insights into simplifying Zero Trust framework implementation and gaining maximum efficacy with fewer, converged resources that enable security leaders to sustain and scale their ability to protect the organization.
