Security Uncovered

"M365 Security Trio": Segmentation, Visibility, and Automation

Here's some obvious security advice: limit blast radius, provide least privileged access, and automate compliance. But that's really difficult to accomplish! In fact, most companies don't manage it, and that's when hacks occur. 

The challenge comes from complexity, and the solution is segmentation. As an example, let's talk about the most critical, most widespread, most complex, and most expensive SaaS solution inside almost every enterprise: Microsoft 365 (+ Legacy Hybrid Infrastructure).

Shawn Lankton is CEO at CoreView, will share what he's seeing as CoreView helps enterprises across the world improve IT efficiency, maximize SaaS ROI, and reduce security/compliance risks.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • How to give admins more privileges while reducing overall security risk
  • How to use automation to reduce risk while saving time
  • Why visibility is a critical component for good security

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Converting raw data into valuable business insights 
  • Developing a data-driven culture, driving adoption across all department 
  • Getting value from all your organisation's datasets

Zero Trust Shouldn't Equal Zero Productivity: A Holistic Identity Security Approach for Modern Environments

The world keeps changing and newsworthy breaches still occur despite the adoption of notions like "sure transformation", "assume breach," and "never trust, always verify"  Attackers now have a whole new array of entry points, tools, and techniques to work with. Instead of needing to target end-users, traverse the network permitter, elevate privilege, move laterally, and repeat, cyber criminals can take advantage of dynamic, distributed, environments coupled with the proliferation of systems accessed by machines and pipelines.

In this session, we'll: 

  • Understand the importance of Zero Trust and the risk of powerful identity and access to your entire IT estate 
  • Go beyond traditional IAM/PAM and learn about the new identity security tech stack and how it tackles Zero Trust
  • Automate and dynamically manage lifecycle with just-in-time access
  • Control and manage access and privilege across all human and machine identities, using conditional and attribute based authentication, not the same old static auth
  • Address ransomware attacks from initial entry through data exfiltration
  • Strike the balance between strong identity focused security and end user productivity

Journey to a Lean IT & High performance Business Enabling Organization

At a time of decreasing margins, diverse markets, complex customer needs and emerging technologies, it is more and more important to unite the power in an organization to eventually drive in one common direction.

Since many organizations are characterized by an extensive stakeholder management with various stakeholders from different business sectors the IT needs to enable the business. The vision "IT as business enabler" aims at the desired future IT position and provides the basis to transform into a lean IT and high-performance organization.

Setting up Business Relationship Management, Stakeholder Management and IT Governance are concrete keys to success. Another approach to build bridges between IT and business is the establishment of a separate unit for IT integration and business consulting which connects the several corporate divisions and creates synergy effects.
