Date: Tuesday, 27th September 2022

Time: 10am – 11am (AEST)




Synopsis and overview of the session

As organizations move forward on their cloud adoption journeys, recent breaches and high profile attacks have accelerated security teams efforts to effectively manage risk factors across the complexities of multi-environment, multi-workload, and multi-project cloud estates, to deliver actionable insights in minutes, not days.

Focus Network in partnership with Wiz will bring leading IT Security executives together to discover some of the specific drivers and trends behind the emergence of CNAPP, why CNAPP is well suited to address those trends, and what they mean for the future of CNAPP as it continues to take shape and evolve.
Your task to build faster and more securely in the cloud requires unified visibility, innovative approaches, and new thinking.

Some of the key areas we will delve further into over this virtual session:

  • The limitations of security strategies that potentially introduce risk-prone tactics into new cloud environments
  • Practical advice on embedding a shift-left security approach within an organization
  • A new cloud-native security approach that helps remove risks before they become threats
