Call it cybersecurity's harmonic convergence.

We are at a watershed moment in information security - a time where the sector is being reshaped by the threat landscape and by our own senior leadership. This session is about helping you re-imagine a cybersecurity vision that can accommodate all influences. In terms of threats, the high-profile breaches at Target, JPMorgan Chase and Anthem confirm that the old model of perimeter security is insufficient. Organizations today need to fortify their security and controls inside, at and even outside the traditional perimeter. At the same time, organizations must adapt to the new, collaborative cyber security model, which requires robust information-sharing.

And then there is the heightened sensitivity of senior leadership and boards of directors. What does the board need to know, and what information can you share proactively to ensure the board supports your program needs? Attend this session and gain new insights from top leaders of BAE Systems Applied Intelligence and Fortinet into how you can re-shape your organization's cyber security posture to succeed in this new era of advanced threats and heightened scrutiny.

The speakers addressed a wide range of important issues, including:

  • Advanced threats and the new cyber security dynamics;
  • How to succeed at information sharing;
  • Strategies for effective communication with the board.
