Rapid technology change coupled with the increasing volume and sophistication of cyber-attacks are driving up the cost and complexity of IT security investment. Leveraging a risk based approach to prioritize investment and focus monitoring/analytics efforts is an effective way to stay ahead of emerging threats.
It has also become clear that traditional methods, such as relying solely on a SIEM with predefined rules to detect and respond to attacks, are proving to be insufficient. Organizations need new techniques to proactively detect unknown threats to their traditional IT & cloud environments.
Roland Cloutier (ADP, Staff Vice President and Chief Security Officer), George Gerchow (Sumo Logic, Vice President of Security & Compliance), and Brian Nolan (OpenSky, National Practice Director) will facilitate a discussion focused on leveraging risk management to design proactive monitoring and actionable threat intelligence.
George Gerchow, Sumo Logic Vice President of Security and Compliance brings 18 years of information technology and systems management expertise to the application of IT processes and disciplines. Mr. Gerchow’s practical experience and insight from managing the infrastructures of some of the world’s largest corporate and government institutions, make him a highly regarded speaker.
