Security Leaders Panel Debate: Best Paths Towards Frictionless SecurityIn this panel discussion security leaders from Ping Identity, Brover Advisory and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank discuss the increasing threat landscape and the need for CISOs to embed a zero trust strategy into their daily operations.
The journey to frictionless cyber security is no longer about telling people what they can’t do; it’s about showing them what they can do.
Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are responsible for managing the escalating security landscape as demand grows for a frictionless experience.
Jurkovic states that frictionless security refers to finding the right balance between customer experience, security, and safety. Furthermore, Durand says that businesses must also meet their own security needs as well as operating and acquiring customers. According to Brover, the security arms race will continue. However, what remains unchanged is the culture, leadership, and human aspects.
In this panel discussion Peter Hind, Principal Research Analyst at ADAPT, guides the discussion to address the increasing threat landscape and the need for CISOs and leaders to embed a zero trust strategy into their daily operations.
- Data is moving through networks at an ever-faster rate, and cloud-centric structures are expanding attack surfaces. Existing security solutions and resources are not powerful enough to protect data adequately.
- Ideally, our systems would continuously assess the risk of an individual asking for something, the risk and posture of the device the user uses, and the risk associated with the desired action. A real-time evaluation of those things is essential since circumstances change constantly.
- It is essential that businesses have robust continuity plans, not just the crisis response plans and how they deal with the media, legal, and government.
