March 4th at 4:00 PM
St. Regis San Francisco
125 3rd Street, San Francisco, CA
The Global Insider Threat Summit is a knowledge sharing opportunity with some of the world’s top business and security professionals.
This year saw not only continued growth of insiders as a threat vector, but also a massive leap in public awareness and discussion around privacy. The overlap of these two critically important topics mean that organizations are forced to achieve a very delicate balance: how it is possible to protect against insider threat while also fostering an environment of trust — one that enables employees and the business as a whole?
Leading global security experts will discuss how modern, global enterprises are leveraging new forms of intelligence to illuminate network and human activities, detect anomalies and fraud, and pinpoint insider threats while protecting user privacy and empowering trusted insiders. It will also feature real-world use cases and applications adapted from Dtex’s diverse mix of leading global enterprise customers.
Join leading security experts to discuss and learn:
- How enterprises are reducing risk by transitioning from Insider Threat to a Trusted Insiders approach.
- How a better understanding of user behavior drives better security, privacy and agility.
- How new intelligence is elevating cyber security to a board-level discussion.
We look forward to seeing you at next year's summit!
