We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive discussion with your peers to gain your perspective in support of our ongoing industry research.

Join us for this Timely Discussion!

Enterprise security leaders face a myriad of operational challenges: They must secure operations, manage risk, and — in a world of constrained budgets — find ways to do more with less. Meanwhile, threat actors attack with seeming impunity, targeting vulnerable organizations with cyberattacks that grow more frequent, more sophisticated, and more damaging. IBM’s 2022 “Cost of a Data Breach” study found that 83% of organizations suffer more than one data breach, with each breach costing USD$4.83 million, on average.

The key questions we will be discussing are:

How can enterprise cybersecurity blind spots be better identified (and then illuminated)?

How can transparency be established across an extended landscape to include data applications, cloud resources, people, and workflows?

How can resilience be ensured in an operational universe encompassing on-prem, datacenter, and cloud assets?

How can AI improve threat-risk assessment and measurement?

To what extent can workflow automation improve cybersecurity posture?

In this Virtual Think Tank session, Frost & Sullivan Cybersecurity Industry Director Toph Whitmore speaks with industry security experts to get their perspectives on gaining visibility to detect, investigate, and respond to threats; connecting tools, workflows, insights, and people to improve security posture; and employing artificial intelligence and machine-learning to reduce threat exposure.
