    In a recent survey, more than half of CISO’s stated that users’ work devices are very or extremely challenging to defend.

    As threats and networks become more complex, it is imperative to have the right tools to protect your data, networks and prioritise risks on endpoints.

    Seeing Secure Endpoint as an integral part of your Zero Trust and SASE journey creates a powerful combination of effective, automated, always-on security that works everywhere your users go, both on and off the corporate network. This combination should come with cloud-native, built-in platform that enables eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) that helps your SOC analyst and security protect your endpoints better, faster, and with less effort.

    Session Title: Is Endpoint leading the pack?

    Session Panellists:

    • – Harrison Nnaji, CISO – First Bank of Nigeria
    • – Ibrahim Yusuf, Technical Solution Architect – Cisco
    • – ‘Wunmi Faiga, CISO – NIBBS
    • – Festus Amede, CISO – Zenith Bank

    Discussion areas:

    – The value of adding threat hunting to your breach defense.

    –  Differences between starting an internal threat hunting team versus acquiring services from a third party

    –  Leveraging a hybrid model to take a more proactive approach to breach prevention.

    –  No one is immune to cyber threats, but when you lack the context required to prioritize what to remediate first, and it’s impossible to remediate every single vulnerability, how do you even know where to start let alone assign priority to the ever increasing number of CVEs?
