Afternoon Networking Break
The SNG cybersecurity panel will provide a holistic executive view of cybersecurity, and a few of the core topics that will be addressed as part of this important session include:
- Cybersecurity of IoT devices, including industrial control systems and security systems
- Nation-state hacking and other sources of challenge for top CISOs and CSOs
- How cybersecurity leaders can share intel and coordinate with physical security leaders to prepare to face threats with multiple vectors
- Artificial intelligence impact on cybersecurity
How do top CSOs make sense of the high volume of data that security solutions and threat monitoring solutions provide to their teams? How do you find the insights from the noise? What role do advanced technical solutions play in this space? And how do you ensure the cybersecurity of your solutions when you’re managing thousands of devices that all require enhanced cybersecurity? Our panel of security leaders from top tech companies like Meta and others will address these questions and more.
