Threats Are Moving Fast—Are You? Rethink Your Approach with the IBM Threat Management Lifecycle POV

Transforming Your Security Program

How do you protect your organization from attacks when your environment is evolving almost as fast as the threat landscape? Most organizations try to keep up by adding layers of tools to their disparate security solutions. This only increases the complexity of the problem, leaving businesses vulnerable to gaps. In this session, we will discuss how to turn the historical approach on its head, empowering security teams with an adaptable security threat management framework that is end-to-end, but customizable to their needs. Based on the NIST Cyber Resiliency lifecycle, IBM’s approach to transforming your security program will help future-proof your program against threats and the evolving nature of your own organization’s IT ecosystem.
