To thrive in the digital economy, today’s organizations need to continuously and rapidly adopt advanced technologies. But these advancements can wreak havoc among those accountable for managing security and risk. While modernized networks and applications may boost business and open new doors for customers, they simultaneously introduce new vulnerabilities at the same incessant pace. Moreover, bad actors intent on stealing corporate assets are hardly the only challenge as organizations regularly battle insider threats, whether innocent or malicious. And if all of that weren’t enough, risk executives and managers are now facing new, and more compliance requirements and questions, all intended to make corporate data safer.

Join us for CDW’s dinner on “Modernizing Security and Risk for Today’s Complex Threat Landscape,” presented in partnership with CIO, CSO, Computerworld and Network World, where we’ll bring together experts who are savvy to these questions, challenges and more. You’ll gain an up-to-the-minute understanding of modern security and risk to help your organization remain successful in today’s business environment.

  • How vigilant organizations are modernizing with a tailored fuel-mix of security assessments, hardware and software to build more resilient IT infrastructure.
  • What are today’s best practices to thread these techniques through people, processes and technologies.
  • Which insider threat strategies are today’s organizations maximizing to safeguard their data and operations against cyber attack.
  • How organizations are capturing real-time intelligence across their organizations to remain safe and compliant.
