Canada IT & Security Leaders

Content Week


In this new era of cyber-threat, characterized by both slow and stealthy attacks and rapid, automated campaigns, static and siloed security tools are failing – and the challenge has gone beyond one that is human-scalable. Organizations need to urgently rethink their strategy to ensure their systems, critical data and people are protected, wherever they are. Today’s Autonomous, Self-Learning defenses are capable of identifying and neutralizing security incidents in seconds, not hours – before the damage is done.

In this session, learn how self-learning AI:

  • Detects, investigates and responds to threats – even while you are OOTO
  • Protects your entire workforce and digital environment – wherever they are, whatever the data
  • Defends against zero-days and other advanced attacks – without disrupting the organization

Your security team manages risks that affect business units and functions across your entire organization. Security is threaded through every aspect of your business, and your decisions have never mattered more. On a daily basis, you make decisions that affect day-to-day operations, data and system security, executive-level strategy and direction and quite possibly, the future success of your organization. Security leaders straddle the lines of executive, strategic, and tactical decision making, and must be experts at navigating all three of these levels. We’re wearing many hats, often switching between them from meeting to meeting, and it’s imperative that we can effectively communicate and drive decisions that improve and mature our security efforts across the board. 

This session will explore ways to enhance engagement with technical teams, business units and executives alike, while still maturing your security program to be more efficient and effective at managing and mitigating risk. Concepts and topics covered will include: 

  • The 3 levels of decision making you must navigate on a daily basis and how they impact the rest of the organization 
  • Applying meaningful metrics to demonstrate value to executives and mature program operations for optimal effectiveness 
  • Finding program gaps where remediation efforts or SLA compliance is lagging, and taking steps to help affected teams improve and succeed 
  • How Tenable helps to improve operational efficiency, address threats and vulnerabilities faster, and demonstrate tangible business value at all levels of the organization
