FROM REACTIVE TO PROACTIVE: NEW DIRECTIONS IN IT SECURITY

Overview

In the past, IT security has been a reactive discipline: security teams built layered walls and then waited to respond. But today, as the IT environment becomes more complex and attackers become more sophisticated, it’s no longer enough to sit behind the wall and wait. Managing today’s risk means building a proactive defense – and advance planning in case that defense fails.

The 2017 Black Hat CISO Summit brings together IT security executives, industry experts, and security researchers to discuss these fundamental shifts in IT security strategy. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from peers about new defense strategies such as threat hunting, deception, and mining the Dark Web. CISOs will discuss their proactive strategies to risk management and security operations, and threat experts will discuss the new wave of threat actors who are now targeting today’s enterprises. The discussion will include an in-depth look at how the geopolitical situation in cybersecurity is changing, and its potential impact on commercial organizations.
