Machines Are Friends Not Foes: Cognitive Computing Accelerates the Journey

Popular movies, books and television shows typically position advanced technology as a threat to humanity and all we hold dear. Yet cognitive computing technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing and Augmented Reality (AR) are helping CIOs and CISOs make better decisions faster. We will discuss how cognitive computing can help us navigate the acceleration of activity and decisions that we are experiencing on our digital transformation journeys.

Takeaways:

  1. New cognitive computing technologies can be unnerving and difficult to trust
  2. Used properly, cognitive computing technologies such as AI, ML and AR can provide data to humans in such a way to enable us to better prioritize the decisions we must make and make those decisions more effectively

Shift Left to Improve Security in Your Cloud-Native Applications

The concept of "shift left" engages security earlier in the development cycle of cloud-native applications, reducing risk as development is accelerated. However, migrating to cloud-native environments often causes loss of existing security capabilities. With the abstraction of the compute layer, security teams need "shift up", focusing on protection of the application itself and securing the DevOps ecosystem that enables it. 

Attend this session to learn why Shifting Up provides improved security and cost efficiency in cloud-native environments, including:

  • Container environments
  • Containers as a Service (CaaS)
  • Serverless implementations

The Geopolitical Landscape's Effects on Organizations

The recent U.S. government bans against Russian-based security products and Chinese smartphones are the latest results of suspicion and distrust of competing world powers. Organizations working with government entities must be aware of the geopolitical stipulations regarding their business relationships. Even with the geopolitical landscape, the buying decisions of security products are still based on trust in the supplier. It is important for CISOs and security leaders to incorporate geopolitical risk in all business-critical software, hardware and services purchasing decisions - even if that means considering local alternatives.

Takeaways:

  1. Review the geopolitical landscape and how it has effected industries and organizations
  2. What to be aware of with your buying decisions
  3. What to anticipate and prepare for in the coming years
