In the age of AI, driving a business forward requires balancing three very significant considerations: growth through innovation, productivity through operational efficiency, and trust through security. To better understand how AI impacts the intersection of security, innovation, and operational efficiency, Okta commissioned an AlphaSights survey of 125 executives across three regions, targeting the decision-makers typically tasked with helming those efforts at companies:

  • CSOs/CISOs for their focus on security
  • CTOs for their focus on innovation
  • CIOs for their focus on operational efficiency

Bhawna Singh, Chief Technology Officer at Okta, is here to discuss the results.

Check out this interview from the BSW Vault, hand picked by main host Matt Alderman! This segment was originally published on August 9, 2022.

Zero Trust is the security buzzword of the moment, and while it is a very powerful approach, nearly every enterprise security product on the market – and some that aren’t even security products — are saying they enable Zero Trust. The problem is this: you can’t buy zero trust. It’s an approach, an architecture, and a journey, not software, hardware, or a service to deploy. Zero Trust also provides a rare opportunity in security - to reduce cost, improve security AND enhance end-user and customer experience.

The recent rise in adversarial AI has made it clear: organizations must fight AI with better AI. Gone are the days of relying on legacy, antiquated endpoint detection and response offerings, or cybersecurity tools that are based on ineffective machine learning models. In this interview, Deep Instinct CIO Carl Froggett will explain why Deep Learning is the most superior form of AI, and the technology’s role in powering predictive prevention.

Attackers are targeting enterprise users when they are online via attacks like spear phishing, malicious docs infected with malware/ransomware.

Today SASE/SSE’s Secure Web Gateway (SWG) component is touted as the solution to this problem. These SWGs look at traffic between the enterprise users and websites and try to infer attacks.

Unfortunately, attackers are subverting these SWGs and breaking into enterprises. There is an urgent need to stop this and the solution seems to be to have a browser native security agent which can detect-mitigate attacks happening on the users browser and allow enterprises to threat hunt web attacks company wide.

Since the 1995 publication of Daniel Goleman’s international bestseller Emotional Intelligence, Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, a global movement has developed to bring “EQ” into practice in businesses, schools, and communities around the globe. But what is its impact on Cybersecurity?

In this interview, we welcome Jessica Hoffman, Deputy CISO for the City of Philadelphia, to discuss how Emotional Intelligence can be applied by CyberSecurity leadership to create a better culture and better leaders. Jessica will discuss the five skills that encompass Emotional Intelligence, including:

  • Self Awareness
  • Self Regulation
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social Skills

and examples of how to use them. If you want to be a better cyber leader, then don't miss this episode.

 

Semperis CISO Jim Doggett shares insights into the evolving role of the CISO. The daily onslaught of cyberattacks not only increases business risk, but also puts a company’s most important data at risk – data on the company, its employees, customers, and partners. Now, more than ever, the CISO is being asked to understand the business of cyber without being given much time to implement plans for protecting an organization’s infrastructure. There is a balance needed between being a technical and business leader, and Jim can share stories from his successful career to enlighten listeners.
