Event description

Description

Feeling insecure...?

There has been unprecedented demand for IT Security solutions in recent years, with everyone from third party suppliers to the CEO being focused on and caught out by cyber risks.

The market for IT Security products has also been growing along with this demand, with companies increasing in both size and number – Gartner estimates the overall size of this market at $124 Billion in 2019, with a significant portion of this capital seemingly spent on feeding fear uncertainty and doubt in customers.

But when it comes down to it, what are the real threats and are we taking the right approach to mitigate them? Is the business of IT Security getting too big? Is this highly fragmented industry creating needs where there are none? Are there too many security companies? What should we care about?

We have a world class panel to discuss these questions and many more IT Security related topics, including:

  • Dexter Casey (CISO of Centrica)
  • Siân John (EMEA Chief Security Advisor, Cybersecurity Solutions Group at Microsoft)
  • Julian Levy (Operating Partner at Redline Capital) - Moderator
  • Becky Pinkard (VP, IT & Intelligence at Digital Shadows)
  • Will Sheldon (Investor at Summit Partners)

In addition, there will be demo presentations from two highly innovative emerging IT Security companies:

  • BigID uses advanced machine learning and identity intelligence to help enterprises better protect their customer and employee data at petabyte scale. Using BigID, enterprises can better safeguard and assure the privacy of their most sensitive data, reducing breach risk and enabling compliance with emerging data protection regulations like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation and California Consumer Privacy Act.
  • Blackout Technologies offers employers total control over that which employees can access via their mobile devices, including the ability to disable the camera and browser functions, and block the launching of apps on iOS and Android. This drastically limits the amount of data that could be removed or sent by rogue employees.
  • Sevren is a next generation application security management & orchestration platform tailored towards the emerging DevOps environment. Sevren programmatically consolidates all available development-environment data and uses this to provide visibility-into and automatic orchestration-of the SecDLC with a next generation ‘policy-as-code' solution.
