      Join this conversation as Hunter Muller, President & CEO, HMG Strategy interviews Aubrey Turney, Executive Advisor from Ping Identity, as he provides his perspective on how CISOs can use identity to establish collaboration across the enterprise to develop and execute innovative security strategies that build trust with every user.

Instead, you need to put your defenses and controls where the connections occur— the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications reside. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment.
