    CISOs tend to be mostly in the background for organizations and business look at them as a road blocker. But deservedly, the role of CISO started to get much more prominence, considering the dependency on them to effectively support the technology transformation, as the world is transforming into a digital economy. A secure and stable environment is a primary need to consistently and aggressively adopt the digital channels for various business and economic activities. The pandemic has accelerated this journey. Hence, designing and implementing intelligent, but agile and effective security controls is the key to meet the business and security objectives in a timely and effective manner.

    • What lessons learned from handling pandemic security challenges?
    • How to be more agile and positive without compromising security?
    • What are the practical steps to ensure a more resilient but flexible digital platforms?

    Gary Brantley, former CIO for the City of Atlanta and now CTO of Beazer Homes, has developed a tried-and-true strategy to lead the charge and transform an organization, company or business. His secret to success is that understanding the building blocks of organizational resilience lies in adopting a rapid change mindset and developing a seven-step approach. Since 2018, the City of Atlanta has battled two viruses: the largest cyber security attack and COVID-19. After re-strategizing following one of America’s largest cyberattacks and navigating through the current threats of a global pandemic, Gary Brantley has continued to deliver cutting edge technology and services.

    This session highlights an alternative view to traditional cyber security, Larry will assert that the advantage belongs to cyber teams who turn  defenders into hunters; that the advantage belongs to those that leverage the power of AI/ML to detect and stop a malware attack, before it actually  occurs.  That smart, layered defense using AI can actually enable security teams to make decisions faster than the adversaries attacking them.
