A bestselling author described by the Wall Street Journal as "one of Washington's pre-eminent futurists," and a consultant for groups that range from the CIA and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to Hollywood and the Call of Duty video game series, Singer uses an exciting speaking style to explore for an audience the key trends emerging today that will shape the world of technology and security tomorrow.

Improving Outcomes and Boosting Efficiency Through Integration 

We live in unpredictable times – when the conditions that drive business operations can change overnight. As a result, IT security organizations need to think “lean and mean” and act with greater agility, which is forcing them to revisit their systems and processes. What are they finding? The cost, complexity and overhead required to manage the collection of point solutions they’ve invested in over the years has become untenable in today’s new reality. They need a new, integrated approach to security that lets them lock down today’s wildly evolved attack surfaces, while reducing the management burden on already thinly stretched security teams. During this panel, Todd Weber, Optiv’s CTO, discusses with our partners CrowdStrike, Okta and Proofpoint, successful strategies and best practices for integration and restructuring existing security investments for a more holistic, efficient and secure operation. This approach enables enterprises to address immediate security demands and achieve more tangible outcomes, while also creating a far more agile, effective and efficient infrastructure for securing an unpredictable future.
