Breakfast Talk: From Asset Management to Asset Intelligence: Crossing the CAASM

As IT and security teams struggle to manage a complex sprawl of devices, users, cloud services, and software, there's one certainty we can rely on (thanks to the second law of thermodynamics): things will only get more complex.

But there's good news.

What we previously thought of as “asset management” has evolved. Today, we have “asset intelligence”, which moves from a spreadsheet approach — focused on getting an inventory of devices — to an API-driven, always up-to-date way of seeing all assets through integrations of existing tools, data correlation at scale, and querying capabilities to find and respond to gaps.

Join this session to hear from Lenny Zeltser, CISO of Axonius. You’ll become familiar with how this new approach to asset intelligence and the emerging Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) category helps IT and security teams improve security hygiene, reduce manual work, and remediate gaps.

Cyber Insurance

The last two years have seen significant financial losses from ransomware and other cybercrimes perpetrated against companies of all sizes. These losses have driven significant cyber insurance claims activity, which, in turn, has resulted in premiums rising with coverage being reduced.

The COVID lockdowns were certainly a factor in accelerating these attacks, and it is clear that our growing shift to even greater digital reliance will have the continued consequences of cyber attackers compromising companies in new and evolving ways. With so much news about organizations being hacked daily, one can feel like there is no ability to be safe. However, best practices can limit the impact and damage caused by a cyber-attack and insurance can help with recovery.

During this fireside chat, we will address the factors driving significant change in the cyber insurance market, and how these changes are beginning to integrate cyber risk management and technology. We will discuss the increased security requirements cyber insurers are expecting to be deployed in order to offer coverage, and the best way for both small and large companies assess how to navigate a complex cyber security environment

China Threat Update

China is using AI to repress the Uyghurs. It must stop. The Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of the Uyghur people will go down in history as one of the worst human rights tragedies of our time — not just for the abject horror of targeting a population of 11 million for genocide, but also for the advanced technologies that enabled it.
