The Cybersecurity and IT Leaders’ Virtual Masterclass

An exclusive online masterclass for Cybersecurity and IT leaders in the United Kingdom

This Masterclass brought to you by Trustwave & Netskope focused on the trends driving cloud, network, and security transformation and on how the economic impact in a post-pandemic world further supports this catalyst for change through consolidation cost savings and return-on-investment opportunities.

The virtual masterclass will allow participants to discuss and share their knowledge and ideas. 

Cloud, Network, and Security Transformation: What’s Next?

Due to the rapid cloud migration and digital transformation, as the result of a workforce driven to work remotely, existing security strategies now need to be replaced with more modern and future-proof cloud platforms and other microservices.

Businesses are focusing on network and security transformation, moving away from traditional wide area network (WAN) set-ups (often called hub-spoke) to virtual or cloud-based networks. SASE (secure access service edge) offers the opportunity for organisations to not just roll their SD-WAN and security to the cloud, but also increases both efficiency and security as well as providing better bandwidth allocation throughout the organisation. 

These digital transformations offer leaders an opportunity to consolidate and reduce expenses by allowing for services to be supported by a third party, that reduces the internal resources needed and enables scalable feature enhancement, all while providing robust security to their networks and data. 

  • How can business leaders measure cost savings and ROI whilst protecting their organisation?
  • What controls and services should companies prioritise in their network and security transformation programmes? 
  • Is there a tested reference architecture for Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)?
