Program Agenda

The Secure Access Journey

Sabrina Konecky, Director, Information Security, Eli Lilly & Company

Avoiding hype and buzz is difficult. This session discusses various steps in the secure access journey to ensure that your enterprise is protected and resources are used wisely.

  • PAM: Gaining control over the most crucial aspects of IAM and the necessary associated controls
  • IAM: Realizing it's not about just security but also user experience to ensure business enablement 
  • Zero Trust: Least privilege access is where you want to be especially with enterprise collaborators without sacrificing the ability to get the job done

Gartner’s secure access service edge (SASE) framework outlines the convergence of networking and security capabilities to create an effective and secure edge. The cybersecurity concept emphasizes the need for vendor rationalization to reduce complexity while increasing visibility and ease of management. This session takes a real-world look at some of the groundwork necessary for fitting into this new model for a better user experience, increased reliability of your services, and increased security for all your web-facing business functions.

  • Understand the top 6 benefits of a SASE framework for IT and security leaders
  • Learn how you may have already started your SASE journey with your existing solutions and determine how projects you’ve already accomplished fit into the overall SASE model.
  •  Identify your company’s definition of the edge - how you view your boundaries will determine which tools you need for your strategy.
  •  Discover how to build out a business case for the budget and get buy-in from key stakeholders.

11:00 am - 12:00 pm Debunking SASE Myths- The Truth Is Out There: A Fireside Chat

Jay Klauser - VP, Worldwide Sales Engineering and Alliances, NetMotion

Even before the session takes place, we’ll debunk a few myths:

  • SASE is not a product category like SDP or VPN, but a network security framework
  • Not every aspect of your infrastructure needs to change immediately to implement a SASE solution – the SASE framework should be considered a marathon not a sprint.
  • No matter what they say, no technology is SASE, but technologies and solutions have SASE capabilities.

Join this fireside chat session as we breakdown and uncover how the SASE philosophy can offer the best for today, while setting you up for success tomorrow. We’ll discuss SASE uncovering what it is vs. what it isn’t. We’ll plot the road to SASE – and answer the questions:

  • Does my entire infrastructure need to change?
  • How do I put the SASE philosophy into a practice that works for me?
  • What’s the best way to measure success – ideal outcomes of implementing SASE

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm The Infinite Perimeter Securing Human Users and IoT Simultaneously

The dovetailing of IT and OT continues as we march towards a 5G enabled IoT informed near future. Network infrastructure and architecture must allow for the interoperability and security of all users- both human and IoT endpoints in real time.

  • Realizing the new perimeter is the user or endpoint
  • Transforming that identity-first mindset to encompass all users and endpoints
  • Engaging change management across the enterprise to ensure all stakeholders are onboard and contributing to the stewardship on a new and truly connected reality
  • Enabling SASE to seamlessly gauge the identity entity of all endpoints

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Determining Data Context

It’s been said (as recently as in the session above) that the user is the new perimeter. The theory is that if everything is known about the user, the details how the user is manipulating data can be understood. It has also been said that the new perimeter is data itself. The theory is that if the focus is data-first, privilege can be granted more appropriately.

  • Grappling with the fact that the most difficult aspect of SASE adoption will be the understanding of data context
  • Securing each identity entity with appropriate context
  • Dovetailing the understanding of the user, endpoint and data for true context realization
  • Continually assessing the risk associated with and trust granted through privileged data use

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm A BISO Take On Secure Access

Pat Benoit - BISO, CBRE

Pat Beonoit, BISO, CBRE

Secure access tools can only be effective if the business remains enabled. Users can only be as effective as the access they are granted allows. This session examines that ‘multi factor authentication’ of secure access technology should include not only architectural interoperability but interoperability with your human resources.

  • Shifting Left of the security leader down into the customer world
  • Being a Global Senior Security Executive for client lifecycle management
  • Providing a product InfoSec maturity model
  • Driving ideas of what to include for advancing security into your service 
  • Establishing metrics to ensure value add to the enterprise and ultimately monetizing security
