“We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science
and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything
about science and technology.” – Carl Sagan

CISO Assembly

November 21, 2019

New York, NY

Security in the Digital Age

With an alarming number of breaches, it is clear that the attack surface has greatly expanded. As enterprises work to develop a progressive strategy, there is an increasing need to deploy and manage a variety of advanced internal and external security services. This leaves the Chief Information Security Officer faced with a multitude of challenges to maintain and run a secure enterprise.

The CISO is at the center of the security dialogue and is ultimately responsible for the guidance and leadership of an increasingly intricate technology landscape. Given the weight of that responsibility, the search for the most transformative solutions that enable them to protect the enterprise is constant and the need to stay ahead of the curve, a must.

On November 21, 2019 in New York, NY Apex Assembly will unite visionary leaders, entrepreneurs and industry security experts for a full day of content and networking, where we will examine the challenges of 2019 and concentrate on the most pressing issues of 2019 in the information technology security sector.

Through collaboration with our executive community, we have discovered key industry challenges and trends. These topics form the foundation of the Assembly and will be addressed through informative introductions, member roundtables, case studies and interactive workshops.

Andre Bromes Goodwill Industries - CIO
Tomas Maldonado
Tomas Maldonado International Flavors & Fragrances - CISO
Cathy Yesenosky Sumitomo Mitsui Banking - Head of IT Risk, Governance, & Compliance
Mark Ramsey ASSA Abloy - CISO (America's)

Topics to be covered include:

  • The changing cloud compliance, risk, and cloud management framework. How to address cloud adoption and real-world cloud security challenges
  • Utilizing security analytics that can help you detect compliance violations in real time while examining under behavior to speed up attack detection and response
  • Ways to better manage authentication, password policies and enforce protocols to ensure consistency across enterprise-wide, customer, social and third-party systems
