The IT and Cybersecurity Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for IT and Cybersecurity leaders in the United States

Hosted by Cloudflare, The IT and Cybersecurity Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable offered an intimate online forum for IT leaders from prominent firms in the United States.

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve all the wealth of experience from senior peers.

The Increasing Security Concerns in the Big Surge

This year’s surge in internet activity resulted in CIOs going through unusual and unexpected challenges. With most companies relying almost exclusively on a remote workforce, web traffic has increased at an unprecedented 10-30% rate across the board. 

As The National Cyber Security Centre warns businesses of increased exposure to threats targeting essential services and hospitals, decision-makers are now looking for solutions to identify and prevent such risks. Besides preparing for the new reality at the end of the global lockdowns, organizations are working towards a more resilient security architecture.

  • How is the “big surge” impacting internet capacity worldwide?
  • What steps should businesses take to protect themselves from advanced and persistent threat groups?
  • What will reopening look like based on the progress and efforts of other global regions?
