Holistic Approach to Cyber Risk Governance in the GDPR Era
As we are getting closer to the dreaded May 25th deadline, when the General Data Protection Regulation will come into force, many companies are still struggling with implementing effective risk assurance programs that constitute a key requirement for any sensible cybersecurity and compliance strategy.

Pressured by the Digital Transformation, corporate networks are becoming increasingly complex, spanning across multiple geographical locations and technology platforms. Unfortunately, even as companies are becoming more open to the outside world, different business units within the same company still remain essentially isolated when it comes to consistently measuring and exchanging security and risk management data across their networks.

Without full and clear visibility into the true company-wide risk posture, executives are bound to have massive difficulties understanding and communicating their current cybersecurity and compliance standing compared to their peers as well as the industry’s guidelines and best practices. Unprepared to address a potential data breach, they are inevitably going to face all the grim consequences, which, starting this May, are going to become very expensive.

To avoid this sad scenario for your company, join this KuppingerCole webinar and learn:

To identify the necessary ingredients for creating a risk management framework for holistic cyber risk governance;

About the needed steps to help bridge the information sharing and communication gaps between business functions ahead of GDPR enforcement;

How to bring uniformity to your company’s situational awareness with regards to current and future compliance regulations.

In the first part of the webinar, Matthias Reinwarth, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will describe the challenges of cyber risk governance challenges companies are facing in the new era of constantly changing and increasingly harsh data protection regulations.

In the second part, Ken Pfeil, Chief Architect at TechDemocracy, will dive into the technical details of addressing these challenges in a holistic fashion and will demonstrate how his company’s recently launched security risk platform can help with that.

Finally, Matthias and Ken will be joined by Gautam Dev, Global Managing Principal at TechDemocracy, to discuss what it takes to activate this holistic approach towards cyber risk governance in a real-life scenario and to answer the questions from the audience.

Digital Identities in the Internet of Things - Securely Manage Devices at Scale

The Internet of Things is disrupting all industries and use cases; from customer IoT, to Industrial IoT. Companies are forced to become more innovative with their products whilst their services are being, or will be, digitized. Top drivers of this digitization are eroding margins and changing customer behaviour, whereas new market disruptors face security challenges. The question now becomes: where do companies decide to focus their money and efforts, in order to capitalize on this disruption? Either on business optimization, by doing things better and more efficiently, or focusing on a business transformation, to move from CAPEX to OPEX.
