CISO Membership Dinner

Atlanta, GA
September 20, 2018

The Transformational CISO

On September 20th in Atlanta, GAApex Assembly, in partnership with Thales e-Security, proudly hosted an exclusive CISO Dinner. The invitation-only event united leading Security IT decision makers and business leaders from the greater Atlanta area to address the findings of a survey completed by over 5,200 IT and IT security practitioners in 12 countries. The research examines how the use of encryption has evolved over the past 13 years, and the impact of it on the security posture of organizations in the face of today’s most pressing data protection challenges.

Key takeaways included:

  • Broad trends – why use encryption, what applications are more folks using encryption with, what challenges are they having
  • Cloud – past the era of data center vs cloud, now onto multi-cloud and seeing new dynamics
  • Compliance – GDPR & other regulations, seeing some clear effects of those activities
  • Types of solutions that can address encryption challenges – including things like HSMs, centralized key management, and bring your own key
