From Secure to Trusted: A Journey to Digital Leadership


This new decade has already provided many lessons. One is that the mantra “never let a good crisis go to waste” could have been written for the cybercriminal fraternity. Another is that the concept of digital trust is rapidly becoming a business imperative in the digital era. At the heart of all this, as always, is security: the critical barrier between data integrity and compromise; and a fundamental building block for digital trust.

But trust encompasses so much more. From privacy and compliance to sustainability; from ecommerce to trusted ecosystems; and from ethics and transparency to brand reputation and loyalty.

Engendering digital trust is a business imperative, but it requires leadership and governance from board level to ensure that it becomes part of the very fabric of the business.

Enabling the best user experiences in the New World of Work with proactive security and self-healing solutions

Riku Reimaa

Technology Consultant and Evangelist, HP

The dramatic acceleration of digitalisation has challenged organisations to adapt to new ways of maintaining and increasing end-user productivity. Securing your endpoints has become a priority (over 90% of respondents to a recent HP survey are prioritising endpoint security in 2021 an beyond), as your workforce is dispersed and working in a hybrid mode, at the office and at home. During this talk we will look at the challenges that have been brought on by the dramatic move to enable a mobile and productive workforce and address potential threats head-on.



Attack Surface Management: A Game-Changer in Security Operations

Frederik Pilebo

Regional Sales Manager, Palo Alto Networks

As more organizations move to the cloud, attack surface management (ASM) is becoming a key pillar in security operations. Half of all organizations surveyed in this MIT report have already experienced an attack on an unknown, unmanaged, or poorly managed asset and almost 20% more expect to be attacked. Tune into the presentation to learn:

  • The state of ASM in organizations today 
  • Why you should expect your board of directors to ask about your ASM plan 
  • How ASM can help keep you secure
