Keynote Presentation

Still Using Passwords? Forget That Sh*t.

The constant barrage of breaches over the last decade has made it clear that usernames and passwords - invented back in 1964 - are simply no longer secure enough. According to the 2019 Verizon Breach Investigations Report, compromised credentials are responsible for over 80% of all breaches. 

Despite attempts to make static credentials more secure by adopting two-factor authentication utilizing SMS, OTPs or hardware tokens, these added layers still leave organizations vulnerable to phishing attacks, keylogging, malware and more. 

By removing the past reliance on usernames and passwords, you can enhance your organization's security by significantly reducing your overall attack surface and virtually eliminating the risk of compromised credentials. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Learn how usernames and passwords are leaving your organization at risk. 
  2. See how passwordless authentication removes major threat vectors. 
  3. Provide users a fast, simple and consistent authentication experience across any channel.

Data to Experiences (D2X): From Storage to Story

For over a decade, organizations have had a hard time organizing and using data to their advantage. As society digitally evolves, the types and amount of data have increased exponentially. User expectations have never been higher, and technology has advanced to the point where we have reached the end of Moore's Law in processing speed. Now it's time to look at things differently. To approach things strategically, starting with the data in a human-centered manner. To build products with modern ingenuity leveraging the capabilities technology now provides. To build a Decision Intelligence Platform that allows executives to make better, faster and fewer decisions. 

Goals: 

  • Reflect on where we are in the Eras of Digital Innovation and what we have learned so far 
  • Discover the challenges organizations face with data and AI initiatives
  • Solve the problem on how to get started providing a different mindset around how to build a data solution

3 Best Practices for Application Security (and Bonus Tip)

Applications are the lifeblood of the enterprise, but as the threats multiply, as applications move to the cloud, as legacy applications need to be maintained, and as organizations seek competitive advantage with new technologies and faster release cycles, it's easy to see that application security can be a thankless, endless and challenging job. 

Imperva has distilled three best practices (and a bonus tip) that help enterprises of any size vastly improve and simplify application security, accelerate threat detection and operationalize application security in a dynamic world where change is the only constant.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION - A REALITY CHECK

The majority of large companies embraced technology-enabled transformation to re-ignite growth and stop losing share to smaller, more nimble players. But what is the real status of their digital transformation journey? How many are past the tipping point of broader transformation and how many suffer from "perpetual proof of concept" syndrome?

Looking beyond the hype of press releases we may find a few revealing insights: 

  • In the age of "marketing of one", customer intimacy is paramount. Yet many companies lack customer data platforms to consistently engage across channels.
  • Agile, user centric approaches are essential to deliver solutions at speed and fuel innovation. Yet many companies lack automation capabilities to follow a true DevOps approach.
  • Algorithms and Machine Learning deliver competitive advantage by complementing conventional business wisdom with new and often unique insights. Yet many companies lack the architectures to capitalize on their own internal data.
  • In the pursuit of operational efficiency, RPA adoption is now considered table stake. Yet many companies follow a tactical, department-driven implementation approach, which leaves behind a complex landscape of point solutions.

    In this interactive session we will explore these examples in more depth, identifying the capabilities needed for change at scale- and ultimately differentiating true digital leaders from the rest of the pack.
