How CISOs Can Make Location-Agnostic Security a Reality

August 18 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm

CWO Digital and Akamai Technologies invite you to spend a summer’s evening of networking and fine wine tasting – from the comfort of your home, garden or balcony

How CISOs Can Make Location-Agnostic Security a Reality

YOUR DIGITAL AGENDA

Join CWO, Akamai Technologies, and a select group of IT and security specialists at this exclusive virtual networking opportunity as we discuss how to make location-agnostic security a reality for your organization. Throughout the evening’s business discussion, we’ll sample several of the world’s finest wines as we address maintaining excellent user experiences no matter where your employees are working from or how they’re connecting to the enterprise.

It’s never been more complex a task to secure the workforce than in today’s business environment, with employees able to work from anywhere with an internet connection. But when employees are outside of the traditional office firewall, it’s still absolutely vital that CISOs deliver the same level – or better – of security, risk and end-user experience regardless of the employee’s location.

To do that, cybersecurity strategies must become truly location-agnostic. These strategies must be agile, they must be frictionless, and they must be future-proof. At this exclusive event, we’ll demonstrate why a shift away from VPN technology to a zero-trust model is essential, as well as how an edge strategy, based on transformative Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) principles, can generate new business value in an age of true hybrid working environment.

That’s not all. Each attendee will also receive a selection of fine wines to sample and enjoy on the evening, introduced by an internationally renowned wine expert. Then, you’ll put your taste buds to the test as you face off against your peers to see who will take home the grand-slam title of “Chief Wine Officer.” Don’t miss out!
