How Security Can Catch up to the Data Economy by Open Raven

Dave Cole, Founder and CEO

ChatGPT and generative AI dominate the headlines-- and for good reason. Behind the most jaw-dropping AI is a mountain of data that was used to train it and an army of data scientists and engineers. And behind them is typically a security team racing to catch up in order to prevent data leaks, breaches, compliance problems, and privacy mishaps. This is a perfect example of data sprawl, and somewhat quietly, containing data sprawl has become one of the top priorities for modern security teams in 2023. Beyond its clear potential to prevent incidents, regaining control of our data could also hold the key to longstanding problems such as prioritization for remediation and threat monitoring. 

11:00 - 12:00

Retreat to the CISOlounge

Democratizing Cloud Security with your CNAPP by Wiz   

Menno Vanderlist, SE Manager, Enterprise West

As cloud adoption expands, security teams are faced with securing increasingly complex cloud environments. Keeping pace requires a new approach. Completely agentless, CNAPPs take minutes to set up and enable security teams to unify a fragmented security stack and empower cloud engineers to take action. CNAPPs remove friction and highlight critical risks so that engineering teams have the incentive and context needed to remediate without security team oversight.

1:20 - 1:50

CISOs on the panel take stage to reveal directions from within the Office of the CISO, We'll find out in this investigative discussion that goes beyond the successes to pin-point hurdles, strategies, best-practices and those ever important lessons learned.
