Today, the traditional security perimeter has dissolved, primarily because of two changes within the enterprise - the rise of the mobile employee and the wide scale adoption of cloud services.
This means that security professionals can no longer take a threat-centric approach, but must be prepared to respond to and manage threats which could already be inside company networks. Security challenges are increasing exponentially, both in number and in difficulty, as companies embrace the Cloud and third party integration.
This is the topic that Information Security Specialist Christo van Staden will be presenting at the upcoming ITWeb Security Summit 2018. He will be discussing the role people-centric security plays in protecting intellectual property and other valuable content in an age of data-breach and constant threat evolution.
Christo will be delivering a paper titled 'Protecting the Human Point' which will introduce the following topics:
- How new risk-adaptive techniques can protect users and data
- Using behavioural analytics to capture interactions between users and data everywhere
- How understanding the context of actions can allow professionals to respond automatically to compromised, accidental and malicious behaviour
- Why dynamic risk scoring can allow security professionals to quickly respond to risk while maintaining optimum business efficiencies.
