Roughly one year removed from the start of one of the gravest health crises in more than a century, security operations, like virtually every field, has been disrupted. Not all the news has been grim, however: Generally speaking, investment in security controls has risen with organizations recognizing its importance to a remote workforce being able to thrive, even as the COVID-19 pandemic sent the global economy into a tailspin. But a rash of challenges have emerged and persisted, including threats related to endpoints, phishing, ransomware, cloud and the supply chain.
This panel will take inventory on the year that was for SecOps professionals across enterprises and service providers, and look toward what the future holds for this critical function finding success in a more decentralized world, discussing everything from alerts and caseload to communication and collaboration to zero trust and automation.
