Cyber Ready: Overview on Zero Trust, What Comes Next and What You Can Do Now.
General Sessions
Chad Koslow
CEO and Co-Founder at Ridge IT Cyber
Add to Calendar 08/24/2023 11:05 AM 08/24/2023 11:25 AM Cyber Ready: Overview on Zero Trust, What Comes Next and What You Can Do Now.

What does it mean to be in a constant state of Cyber Readiness? What is Zero Trust architecture and how do you get there from a state of legacy networks and security? How can Battle-Tested Systems convert your organization from defense to offense? 

The new era of Cyber Security requires an organization to be Cyber Ready, not just passively prepared. We will present what that journey looks like and how it is driven by a Zero Trust framework and Battle-Tested Systems. Continuous improvement is key, and, on too many occasions, organizations believe they are protected and do not try to improve their systems until an actual, potentially catastrophic breach has occurred. This moment of epiphany is entirely avoidable, and we will show you that path to being proactive. 

Posture Matters, and in this presentation, we will answer all these questions as well as some of your own. We will show you the why, the how, and what you can do right now to fortify your perimeter against the increasingly sophisticated attacks of today and tomorrow while in any stage of your Zero Trust Journey.

Add to Calendar 08/24/2023 12:30 PM 08/24/2023 01:10 PM Keynote Presentation: Choosing Security Tools in a Recession

Often organizations lose focus on the process of selecting security related tools and solutions. In a bear market, this is not an issue, as tools can overlap without causing issues to IT or security teams. However, in a recession more detail needs to be given to the selection process of the tools, to ensure cost is reduced and the overall security risks are maintained, if not reduced as well. In this session 19X Microsoft MVP, author, and world-wide speaker, give you guidance on how you can select security tools that will reduce cost, reduce risk, and allow the IT and security teams to be more efficient.
