Navigating the Cybersecurity Path Forward in Today’s New Normal

Thursday, December 3, 3:00-4:00 PM ET


As with business today, cybersecurity isn’t a static concept and to be effective it must continue to evolve with technological advances -- be it in mobility, digital transformation, Zero Trust and CARTA, or the growing sophistication of attackers and their ability to steal what’s most valuable to businesses today -- intellectual property.

The traditional product-centric security paradigm is contributing to the near record number of infrastructure compromises and data breaches. Today’s distributed work environment requires modern cybersecurity that is proactive, risk-adaptive and delivered through a converged platform approach that understands users and data no matter where they are.

Join Forcepoint Chief Product Officer Nico Popp and Global Security Strategist, Homayun Yaqub, for an interactive discussion on moving your company left of breach utilizing a human-centric approach to security designed for today’s sophisticated threat landscape that provides a seamless path to grow your security capabilities when and where you need them.

Attendees will learn…

  • How understanding human behavior underpins modern cybersecurity strategies to finally move left of breach
  • Operational benefits driven through the power of dynamic and adaptive security capabilities
      For example, approaching DLP as a strategic initiative with business enablement and innovation in mind; and, Compliance Vs. Protecting Critical Data
  • Future-proofing your investment and the value proposition in a SASE converged security platform approach that removes operational complexities and lowers TCO up to 30%
