In the age of remote and hybrid work, employees now spend the majority of their time in the browser or in virtual meetings. The workforce is more mobile and distributed than ever before. At the same time, we are seeing an increase in cyber attacks and a higher average cost of data breaches. We must think more about protecting users right where they interface with web threats, the browser, without disrupting productivity.

Join this conversation with your peers to discuss:

  • The browser's role in a business's security strategy
  • Zero trust architecture
  • Managing resources for cybersecurity in a time of economic uncertainty

Strategic Initiatives for the Enterprise:

  • How is budget reduction impacting your security planning and spending?
  • What’s your organization's perspective on balancing security and employee productivity?
  • What are some newer strategies you’ve implemented to combat the influx of web threats?

The Browser as a Differentiator in your Security

  • How do you see the browser fitting into your zero-trust model?
  • How have you seen the browser’s role evolving over recent years and how have you adjusted your security strategies in relation to it?
  • What tools, if any, are you using at your organization to measure and report on web-based threats and potential harmful behaviors on the web?

6:45pm - 7:15pm  Networking Break

7:15pm - 8:30pm  Summary Discussion & Dinner

8:30pm - 9:30pm  Social Hour
