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.

Staying in control of your growing attack surface

Ronald Pool

Cyber Security Specialist, CrowdStrike

While your attack surface keeps growing and complexity rises on the defensive side, it seems to get easier for attackers to launch cyberattacks and get new tools at their disposal.

So where should you focus your energy? How can you simplify security, without actually sacrificing visibility, productivity or flexibility?
Will your tools detect and stop any malicious activity? Or do you still need human intelligence? And how much of that human intelligence can you have in-house?

These business challenges and more will be addressed in our session "Staying in control of your growing attack surface


Resilient Endpoint Security

Ruben Raadsheer

Chief Technologist, HP

Over the past year IT departments, management and their end-users have endured many challenges. Moving to hybrid work overnight, this significant shift in workstyle has moved the attack vector outside of the office and exposes vulnerabilities at end-users. HP has launched security solutions and services that support IT leaders to address these vulnerabilities. Hardware protection of firmware below the OS, protecting from ransomware in the OS, and AI-based protection from malware threats.

Securing the Identity of your Workforce, Today and Tomorrow

Barry McMahon

Senior Manager - Global Product Marketing (Identity & Remote Support Solutions), LogMeIn

Securing the business does not need to cause additional friction for the end user, yet unfortunately, that’s what often happens. Enforcing blanket security solutions that offer little to no flexibility for the end users can carry the consequence of security blind spots. This results in one of the biggest challenges for security leaders: How to influence the workforce to do the right thing, even when no one is watching?

Join this LastPass by LogMeIn session to hear how you can improve your security posture, reduce friction for end users, and help the business scale securely.


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
