Mobile-centric Zero Trust Security Framework

Traditional security models designed on the premise of organizations having a well-defined IT perimeter no longer apply in the perimeter-less world. Passwords based security, which assumed that users operated and accessed business information only form within the enterprise IT perimeter were adequate in the past. But in today's IT environment, where users are accessing information from a variety of untrusted devices, apps, networks, locations, and services - passwords alone are no longer sufficient. It should be no surprise that passwords are still the number 1 cause of data breaches. According to the Verizon Data Breaches Investigations report - 81% of breaches involved weak or stolen passwords. This is because passwords are easily compromised.

In the reality of today's security world how does an organization protect itself? With a Zero Trust approach and framework to security. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by an 'always verify, never trust' approach. Zero trust approach requires that you verify the device, user, apps, networks, and presence of threats before granting access. In addition, you should have on-going enforcement. But with many theories about Zero trust how do you ensure you've taken the right approach. 

CIOs and CISOs face three big challenges:  

  • Drive business innovation with mobile productivity by giving employees the ability to use mobile, cloud, and endpoints. 
  • Enforce corporate security without impacting the user experience. 
  • Redefine enterprise security strategies to address a perimeter-less environment.

Is the Password Really Dead?

Many security companies will pronounce "the Password is Dead" and proceed to present products mitigating this. However, your products still use passwords and will continue for many years to come. We will touch upon this and other myths during this session, e.g.: 

Key Takeaways:

Frictionless IT Operations - The New Frontier, Creating a Superfluid Enterprise

Steward, operator, strategist, catalyst: today's IT leaders must wear many hats, concerned with everything from maximising shareholder value to creating corporate agility to adjust to rapidly changing technology environment. To be successful they must enable their department and the larger organization to run agile, frictionless operations, so they can adapt and scale while ensuring compliance across an ever-changing competitive landscape.  

But the buzzword of the day, 'digital transformation' isn't the savior that the media or consultant agencies would have you believe. 45% of executives believe transformation initiatives were a complete waste of time and with over a third of businesses spending 500k+ on transformation strategies alone in the last 12 months. Obviously, this approach isn't going to work. 

So how do you approach this critical challenge? How do you create operational fluidity to drive improvements in your finance operations? Where do you start? And how can you ensure your efforts will actually deliver specific measurable improvements? 

Join Celonis, to find out how you can not only identify the friction points in your IT operations, but also how to take action to eliminate these friction points and deliver quantified value for the business. Hear about how leading organizations have established IT as a trusted partner to the business by developing a high-performance superfluid operations.

Think Tank

Becoming More Decentralised

Today, increased centralization has put the power and trust into the hands of the few big players. This, of course, raises many security concerns. The risk of disruptions and undesirable outcomes increases as centralization opens the door to exclusive possession or control of commodities and services. As a result, technologies like Blockchain implemented to create decentralized alternatives as they move computing resources away from centralized servers. 

Takeaways:

  1. Evaluating the risks of centralization on availability, confidentiality and resiliency
  2. Exploring decentralized technologies like Blockchain and edge computing that offer visibility as well as enhanced security for your organization
  3. Understand the fact or fictionalization of developing AI strategies and the cause for concern for decentralized AI models
