Today's CISOs are expected not only to drive efficiency, transparency and strengthen information and network security, but also to implement the best technologies and practices to establish and maintain relationships with their customers.

Key challenges include how do you logically secure a public cloud?  Can you proactively automate security sensors and security incident responses? What does it take to move from ‘reactive’ to ‘proactive’ security?

This panel of security executives will share their views and experiences on how to meet these challenges as well as their priorities for the future enterprise security.
