We close out our major virtual event, the SHI Fall Executive Forum, next Wednesday, November 17th, 2021, with a critical look at cybersecurity – and what you must do next to minimize your risk profile.

It’s no secret we live in a technologically less-than-secure world – and cybersecurity represents one of the biggest challenges to businesses today. So our experts will spend the third and final day of our Fall Executive Forum series sharing our most actionable advice and insights.

In case you’re just joining us, check out the details on day 1 (building business resiliency and agility with hybrid infrastructure) and day 2 (support your hybrid workers with effective end-user computing solutions) right here on the blog. We’ll also be sharing video of past presentations here on this blog, including this session focused on how HR and IT must work together to support hybrid workers.

Our agenda will feature key SHI and industry speakers who will share their expertise in ensuring today’s cybersecurity solutions meet the specific needs of an increasingly hybrid workforce. If you’re looking for actionable guidance to ensure you’re asking the right questions and getting the right answers, you won’t want to miss this.

Registration is now open – for you and for anyone else you’d like to invite from your organization. Here’s the full agenda for the final day of this knowledge-packed, not-to-be-missed event:

Security that adapts to your needs

Most of today’s cyberattacks feature advanced tactics such as lateral movement and island hopping that target legitimate tools to inflict damage. It is critical to assess your risk and determine the best course of action to succeed in your cybersecurity program.

In this session, Sanara Marsh, Technical Marketing Manager, Network and Security with VMware, will explain how organizations just like yours can leverage VMware Carbon Black to adapt your posture to more effectively meet fast-evolving security needs

Securing your hybrid workforce, pragmatically

The hybrid workforce challenges IT to secure employees, apps, and data without compromising productivity – a tall order given the increasing complexity of supporting workers wherever they happen to be.

Collin Smith and Jacob Welge, both Corporate Pre-sales Solutions Engineeers – Security with SHI, will cover best practices around meeting today’s hybrid workforce security needs and planning for whatever comes next.

Securing your modern hybrid computing enterprise

The increasingly turbulent threat landscape places today’s hybrid workforces at particular risk – especially given the challenges of maintaining security across networks and devices well beyond IT’s traditional footprint.

In this session, Philip Armbrust, Corporate Security Director, will cover adjustments to security program and policy, architecture, and operations strategy to ensure attendees are able to maximize organizational resiliency.

Zero Trust: Ensuring end-to-end protection in today’s hybrid landscape

Hybrid workforces require secure access from anywhere, across any network – and IT’s cybersecurity resources must raise the level of their game to provide said access securely and productively.

This session, led by Derek Gabbard, Stratascale’s Vice President of Cybersecurity and Rob Forbes, Stratascale’a Director of Identity Services explains how to build a comprehensive Zero Trust strategy, and how to integrate and bring it to life within your enterprise environment.

Leveraging Integrated Risk Management (IRM) to drive security effectiveness

To mitigate risks in the ever-evolving threat landscape, businesses must create a risk-aware culture throughout the entire organization. Policies, controls, and procedures must be aligned, and tailored to support business needs and success metrics.

In this session, Ryan Benson, Director, Security Operations Advisory Services with Stratascale, and Dennis Allen, Senior Security Consultant – Programs at Stratascale, will highlight emerging trends in Integrated Risk Management (IRM) and discuss best practices necessary to build that culture and maintain it over time.
