Learning from the Past and Present to Protect and Reshape the Future of Business

But one constant as we work through the business challenges spawned by this international crisis is the empathetic leadership that technology executives are demonstrating to their teams to help keep them safe, secure and engaged. The key for CISOs and other security leaders to drive success for their companies is to draw from their past and current experiences in the current crisis and to apply a fresh mindset for protecting and leading the business forward into a brighter future with courage and compassion. 

In this Digital Summit, top technology executives will share their advice on the roles that CISOs and tech leaders can play in protecting the enterprise, reshaping the business and fashioning the future of work.

"As an attendee of the HMG Virtual Summit I enjoyed the fact that it was fast moving, insightful and presented a variety of speakers, both local and non-local. The duration was just right and did not require tying up an entire day. I thought the content and format was absolutely terrific!"

Presenting Partners

  • Awake Security

    Awake Security is the only advanced network detection and response company that delivers answers, not alerts. By combining artificial intelligence with human expertise, Awake autonomously models and hunts for both insider and external attacker behaviors, while providing triage, digital forensics and incident response across the new network—perimeter, core, IoT and cloud networks. The Awake Security Platform does this by deeply analyzing billions of network communications to autonomously discover, profile and classify every device, user and application across any network. Using a multi-dimensional machine learning approach, Awake then models complex adversarial behaviors and connects the dots across entities, time, protocols and attack stage. Unlike legacy network detection and response tools that rely primarily on unsupervised learning to spot anomalies from “normal” baselines, Awake instead compares entity behaviors to the peer group and the rest of the organization. This enables Awake to deliver threat detections with low false positives and negatives and provides the context necessary for triage, incident response and remediation. Awake is also thus able to avoid temporal baselining and ongoing training challenges that add to operational overhead. Independent testing proves out these differentiators and shows Awake is more than twice as accurate and produces almost 1500% less noise than the competition. Awake is ranked #1 by EMA for time to value and was recognized as the #1 information security solution being evaluated by global 1000 companies in Enterprise Technology Research’s (ETR) Summer 2019 Emerging Technology Study. Awake is backed by Greylock Partners, Bain Capital Ventures, Evolution Equity Partners, Energize Ventures and Liberty Global Ventures.
