Robert Floodeen Director of Incident Response, Secureworks

  • The reality of the threat landscape and expanded attack surface

COVID-19 saw many organizations racing to stand up remote work infrastructure to enable work from home. In their haste, many businesses had to prioritize speed over security, and left themselves open for attack.




11:30am-12:30pm:  Achieving True Zero Trust with Data Consumption Governance


Doug Wick, VP of Product, ALTR


Today’s business users need fast, remote access to sensitive enterprise data simply to do their jobs. Yet this need also expands the attack surface for bad actors to exfiltrate data. What can security teams do to prevent breaches without hampering legitimate users?


By extending “zero trust” to the SQL layer organizations can now achieve powerful security and control at the epicenter of risk — the data itself. This transcends the limitations of traditional identity access management, which imposes controls over identity authentication and data access, but doesn’t provide control down to the individual query.


During this session, you will learn how this approach:

  • Prevents breaches from even the most credentialed users
  • Enables security to keep pace with the rapid evolution of IT environments
  • Reduces the burdens on security teams
