SPS Session: The Evolution of Enterprise Security in a Digital World - Watch replay
David Goeckeler, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cisco Security Business Group
Tuesday, June 14, 10:30–11:15 a.m. | Potomac C
Enterprise security is changing dramatically with the rise of digitization. Starting at the top with the CEO and board members, executive leaders are questioning how new digital trends will affect their business, all while well-organized attacker groups are doing the same. As the attack surface continues to expand, point products alone are not enough to protect critical data and assets. Enterprise security must evolve to protect from the network to the mobile user and the cloud: wherever employees work and data resides. This session will explore an architectural approach to security in a digital world and some tangible steps businesses can implement to improve their security posture today and moving forward.
