CSO Event Paloalto

Hyde Hacienda, Sydney

Cyber attackers worldwide are displaying an increasing level of sophistication. This is a major issue for Australian CISOs and their teams who often lack the resources required to deal with more frequent and complex attacks by well-resourced cyber criminals. At the same time, legacy security operations centres (SOCs) are dealing with an unmanageable volume of alerts. This leads to ‘alert fatigue’ that slows key processes down and makes it easier to miss potentially significant issues that could be buried in the noise. Hiring an army of security engineers to deal with these challenges is also expensive and doesn’t scale. Join CSO Australia’s associate editor, Byron Connolly, and senior executives from Palo Alto Networks for this exclusive, invitation-only roundtable discussion, ‘No more weekend war rooms: Shift from reactive to proactive security.’
