Past Summits

2021 HMG Live! Global CISO Executive Leadership Summit - DIGITAL

 

Safeguarding the Enterprise Amid Escalating Cyber Threats: Placing a Fresh Lens on Information Security and Risk


The world has changed since March 2020 and nowhere is this more evident than in enterprise security. Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and their teams had to pivot quickly to protect the remote enterprise. The December 2020 SolarWinds attack has been one of the most widespread and damaging cyber-attacks in history -- and the fallout is still being felt. Meanwhile, ransomware attacks have increased dramatically since the start of 2021.

These macro-trends are forcing CISOs and business leaders to look at information security strategies in a whole new light. Third-party risk and supply chain vulnerabilities are being addressed differently than they had in the past. Plus, as the global security landscape continues to evolve, CISOs and security leaders are recognizing that the skills that helped to protect the enterprise yesterday aren't sufficient to safeguard the enterprise on the road ahead. Engage with world-class security leaders who are openly sharing fresh information security strategies, opportunities to enable secure innovation, and inventive approaches to securing the future workplace.


 

“Trust changes everything for you as a leader, for your IT team and for your relationships.”

  • Anthony DeCristofaro
    President & CEO
    Qnext

    Anthony DeCristofaro trusts no one.

     

    As president and CEO of cybersecurity disruptor Qnext Corp., he is at the forefront of Zero Trust Data Access (ZTDA), the “heavy lifter” and transformative subset of Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) that has become, thanks to President Biden’s new executive orders in support of a Zero Trust approach to security, the rising star in large-scale enterprise data protection and safety for the new remote workplace.

     

    Qnext’s flagship FileFlex Enterprise is the world’s first ZTDA platform for the expanding global remote workplace, and the only file and folder data protection technology built on ZTA capable of reducing exposure to infrastructure and corporate breaches caused by VPN exploits and spear-phishing attacks -- from Tesla to Colonial Pipeline, Microsoft Exchange, SolarWinds, Bombardier, Florida Water System, and Canada Revenue Agency, among just a few of the global organizations that have experienced consequential breaches of their “crown jewels”.

     

    As vulnerable-to-cyberattack infrastructures and corporations begin to pivot from VPN to engagement and adoption of easy-to-use ZTA to provide secure, authenticated and constantly re-verified remote access to employees, customers, partners, contractors, and gig workers, DeCristofaro’s leadership since 2014 has positioned FileFlex as the new world benchmark and bedrock of Zero Trust data protection.

     

    Charting the platform’s reach into the highest IT echelons of government infrastructure and corporate data protection, DeCristofaro has leveraged FileFlex’s breakthroughs and innovations into a slate of high-profile strategic global partnerships with tech giants Microsoft, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, and NEC platforms.

     

    He has also attracted the impressive skillset of U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Mike Brown, a leading cybersecurity expert and former director of cybersecurity coordination for the Department of Homeland Security to Qnext’s Board Advisory Team, further enhancing the company’s well-earned reputation as a game changer and rule breaker in Zero Trust cybersecurity.

     

    With an international business and technology background, DeCristofaro has been building disruptive technologies into best-in-category companies for more than 30 years. A major force in launching new and established tech players, DeCristofaro’s biggest accomplishments include re-shaping the traditional photography landscape as CEO and co-founder of the Intel-invested MGI Software with PhotoSuite, the number one consumer digital photography product, outselling Adobe, and Microsoft, as well as VideoWave, a pioneer in the consumer video editing market. DeCristofaro steered MGI’s cap value on the TSE to over $1 billion, and later merged with Roxio in 2002.

     

    He built his corporate career by setting up NEC Canada, and was behind the computer, notebook and monitor manufacturer’s entry into the market, propelling it to over $100 million in sales in its first year. As GM of AST Canada in the late ‘90s, his sales and marketing strategies drove sales from $2 million to over $400 million in just three years, representing 20 percent of AST’s global sales.

     

    Over the course of his career, DeCristofaro has been sought out as a member of several high-profile public Boards, including Hartco, Delrina, Realbiz Media, Synchronica, and TransGaming.

     

    Before joining Qnext, DeCristofaro ran his own tech start-up called iseemedia Inc., a successful mobile software company focused on bringing desktop email to cell phones via text with an advanced content delivery platform, and was acquired by Synchronica, a London Stock Exchange-listed listed company.

EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW: Safeguarding Unstructured Data in a Zero Trust Environment

Anthony DeCristofaro, President & CEO, Qnext

Moderator: Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

As CISOs and other executives continue to adjust to a changing threat landscape, one persistent threat that is becoming an increased risk to the enterprise is the growth and use of unstructured data. This includes email data, file sharing data, Microsoft Office files and other types of intellectual property that’s often left unsecured.

In this Executive Interview, Anthony DeCristofaro, President and CEO of Qnext Corp., will share the security risks posed by unstructured data along with how the use of a Zero Trust security model can help organizations to protect their unstructured data. 


2:40 - 3:00 PM

EXECUTIVE PANEL: Shining a Light on Enterprise Risk

As the role of the CISO continues to evolve, one of the areas where they've continued to increase responsibility is in sharing the various risks that the company faces with the CEO, the Board and line-of-business leaders. These risks extend beyond cyber threats and include risks associated with customer data privacy, supply-chain vulnerabilities and reputational risk. In this panel session, top-tier CISOs and industry executives will share how the CISO role continues to evolve, including their role in identifying and communicating risk to different stakeholders in the enterprise.

  • Sonatype

    The Sonatype journey started 10 years ago, just as the concept of “open source” software development was gaining steam. From our humble beginning as core contributors to Apache Maven, to supporting the world’s largest repository of open source components (Central), to distributing the world's most popular repository manager (Nexus), we’ve played a meaningful role in helping the world embrace the power of open innovation. Over time, we witnessed the staggering volume and variety of open source libraries that began flowing into every development environment in the world. We understood that when open source components are properly managed, they provide tremendous energy for accelerating innovation. Conversely, when unmanaged, open-source "gone wild" can lead directly to security vulnerabilities, licensing risks, enormous rework, and waste. Our vision today is simple. We are laser-focused on helping organizations continuously harness all of the good that open source has to offer, without any of the risks.
