The Shift to SASE:  Tackling Risk and Inspiring Trust in a Cloud-Connected World

As companies have made the digital pivot and operate on a global, virtual scale, one of the most enduring changes is this – the notion of a network perimeter no longer exists. This is one of the reasons why a growing percentage of companies are adopting a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) network architecture to provide edge-to-edge protection across enterprise infrastructure. Join these top security and industry leaders as we explore the benefits of a SASE network architecture and how it can be used to help identify sensitive data and malware while continuously assessing risk.

SASE: The Shift to SASE – Tackling Risk and Inspiring Trust in a Cloud-Connected Business Environment

March 8, 2022   1:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

 

1:00 - 1:15 PM - Welcome and Introduction

Hunter Muller - Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

Lawrence Bilker - EVP & CIO, Pyramid Healthcare, Inc. & Chair, Board of Directors, SIM Philadelphia


1:15 - 1:40 PM - EXECUTIVE PANEL: Why SASE? Why Now?

Moderator: Rocco Grillo, Managing Director - Global Cyber Risk Services & Incident Response Investigation, Alvarez & Marsal

Jeff Brown - CISO, State of Connecticut

Patrick Ford - CISO the Americas, Schneider Electric

Greg Kyrytschenko - Deputy Chief Information Security Officer, Guardian Life

Michael Moore - Practice Development Manager, Insight

When companies made the digital pivot in March 2020, one of the more significant changes from a cybersecurity standpoint is that the notion of a network perimeter no longer exists. For technology executives at enterprise companies, this means finding new ways to protect highly distributed employees, organizational systems and data. This shift has prompted a growing number of CIOs, CISOs and security teams to embrace a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) methodology to help safeguard employees, data and assets. In this Executive Panel discussion, world-class technology executives and industry experts will explore what SASE is about, the challenges and opportunities for applying a SASE methodology, and other criteria in protecting the distributed enterprise.


1:40 - 1:55 PM - EXECUTIVE FIRESIDE CHAT: SASE’s Place in Today’s Could Era

Kumar Ramachandran - SVP of Products for SASE, Palo Alto Networks interviewed by Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

Work is no longer a place we go - it’s something we do - anywhere, anytime. Similarly, the infrastructure that runs our applications and stores our data is no longer all located within our own four walls - more often, it is delivered as a service.

Today, we have a unique opportunity to rearchitect our networks to be as flexible and scalable as we need; to reimagine security as something built-in rather than bolted-on; and to put the user at the center of everything, creating countless possibilities and enabling the future of work through SASE.


1:55 - 2:20 PM - EXECUTIVE PANEL:  Applying a SASE Methodology: Blending the Right Ingredients for Success

Moderator:  John Iannarelli, Former Assistant Special Agent in Charge (Phoenix) and Senior Executive Advisor, FBI

Lawrence Bilker - EVP & CIO, Pyramid Healthcare, Inc. & Chair, Board of Directors, SIM Philadelphia

Ryan Loy - Chief Information Officer, EBSCO Industries, Inc.

Andy Bennett - CISO, Apollo Information Systems

Now that many companies are operating virtually and relying heavily on cloud platforms to run their businesses, a growing volume of companies are adopting SASE methodologies to safeguard their employees, data and assets. In this Executive Panel discussion, top-tier technology and security leaders will share what’s required to adopt a SASE methodology, including the skillsets, technologies, monitoring capabilities and other intangibles that are needed to effectively safeguard the enterprise.


2:20 - 2:35 PM - EXECUTIVE FIRESIDE CHAT: The Business Value of a SASE Architecture
Mike Anderson - CDO & CIO, Netskope interviewed by Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

Proper SASE architecture brings value to an organization when CISOs and CIOs work closely together to implement Security Service Edge - the evolving security stack that includes Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), and Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS). 


2:35 - 3:00 PM - EXECUTIVE PANEL: Shifting to SASE – Identifying the Next-Gen Skills that are Needed

Moderator:  Erik TomasiManaging Partner, Symosis Security and Past Chairman & President, SIM New York Metro Advisory Board

Nishant Bhajaria, Global Head of Privacy Engineering and Analytics, Uber

Bobby Singh - CISO & CTO, Toronto Stock Exchange

Fred Harris - Head of Cybersecurity Risk, Data Risk and IT Risk, Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking

It’s often been said that what got you here may not get you to the next level or state. This line of thinking can also be applied to the evolving threat landscape and the cybersecurity skill sets that are and will be needed going forward. In this Executive Panel discussion, security leaders and industry experts will examine how the threat landscape is changing, where the gaps are with regards to the skill sets that are needed, and how technology/security leaders need to think differently about developing and growing the skills that the enterprise will need into the future.

  • Tonkean

The Tonkean platform makes automating complex business processes simple and accessible to non-developers, such as business operations teams and process owners, by abstracting the high technical barrier and coding expertise needed to deliver robust, enterprise-grade process solutions via composability. Ops teams compose custom process solutions using building blocks called “enterprise components” or ECs. ECs are modular, interchangeable, and reusable capabilities that perform actions or complete steps in a business process. ECs are fully governed and curated, typically by IT. They can be adopted from vendors or custom built, or they can simply be extensions of existing tools and systems. This allows ops and process experts to rapidly build holistic process solutions that can work with different systems, easily adapt to changing needs, and measure cross-functional KPIs–all with no-code and no change management. Enterprises like Google, EVERSANA, Instacart, Grubhub, Crypto.com, and more rely on Tonkean to optimize and align their operations across functions—including sales, marketing, customer support, legal, finance, and more. With Tonkean, enterprises can expand the pie of who can deliver software to make a world of Makers.
