The Connected Worker and the Enterprise of Things
The smartphone is the primary communication and computing device for many of today’s consumers. This dependency on mobile devices will translate into a majority of enterprise computing outside of traditional PC computing. This will have the greatest impact with on campus (non-office-based) and off campus mobile workers who are becoming increasingly connected by rich real time communications powered by mobile applications running on wearable devices such as smart glasses. The rise of IoT in the enterprise, or the Enterprise of Things, will allow these workers to instantly connect with assets in the field to gain immediate understanding of the situation around them.

This session will explore the impact that these connected workers and endpoints will have on your enterprise and its ability to drive growth. Attendees will also learn security concerns that come with these new tools and how to best address them.

How Does Mobility Effect Cyber Planning in Your Business
One of the biggest challenges faced by CSOs and IT security professionals: quantifying security risk. Security budgets are often slashed when businesses look at security as a cost center not as a value. The impact of large-scale data breaches using real-world examples.

  •  Understand why IT security is ultimately about economics and how that impacts decision-making criteria
  • Learn to build an effective business case for investing in security products and services
