'Walking the security tightrope - how to master the cyber balancing act'

Email and collaboration tools are vital to business operations, but they’ve become arguably the single biggest source of risk to the corporate network. As cloud platforms like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace have grown to dominate business productivity, they’ve created irresistible targets; and adversaries are using them to deliver everything from phishing to ransomware.

The security industry has responded with tools designed to defend different pieces of the digital estate, but the resulting mash-up of sometimes complementary but often competing point products is leaving businesses with a level of complexity that’s untenable. The result? IT and security teams are spending more time managing technology than risk.

How can security professionals take firmer control of risk-reduction efforts without increasing the complexity of their digital defences and adding huge sums to the bottom line? Is it possible to maintain peak productivity while pursuing simplification and savings, all without compromising on sophistication and protection?

Join representatives of our hosts Mimecast and a cross-section of your cyber peers to discuss ways IT teams can achieve a better balance – strengthening the security of a modern network with defensive systems that are effective, simple to manage and operate, and not just affordable to the company, but can help security managers show boards that they will reduce costs in the long-term, too.
