Protect 2016 content tracks

What will you learn at Protect 2016? We're offering six key tracks, each targeting a critical area of enterprise security.

Application Security

Rapid growth of the app economy has challenged the traditional SDLC, pushing for ever agile processes, more automation and greater collaboration across development, QA and security operations.

The traditional Software Security Assurance (SSA) approach is to deploy static and dynamic testing technologies during the build and QA process. While security testing is still a critical part of a successful SSA program, it is no longer enough. Two new trends emerge in the new SDLC: shifting left onto the desktop of the developer and bringing software security into operations.

Backup and Governance

In the digital world risk and threats are everywhere and they are increasing in diversity and complexity. These risks include cyber-attacks, disasters and failures, data protection challenges and regulatory pressures.

Hear from the experts how HPE Backup & Governance solutions help organizations address their top concerns around backup and recovery through three primary solution areas: Protect & Prevent – which helps protect against known and unknown threats; Detect & Respond – which helps customers monitor and take action on risk events; and Recover & Comply – which helps ensure business continuity and safeguard compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

Data Security

Data security drives leadership in data-centric security and encryption solutions. Join our track sessions and CyberSecurity Hall demonstrations to learn how we help neutralize breach impacts by securing sensitive data-at-rest, in-use and in-motion. Our solutions provide advanced encryption, tokenization and key management that protect sensitive data across enterprise applications, data processing IT, cloud, payments ecosystems, mission critical transactions, storage and big data platforms.

Intelligent Security Operations

If you’re lucky enough to have a Security Operations Center, you know that it’s a mixed blessing – with threats increasing in intensity, complexity and damage potential, your Intelligent Security Operations has the tough task of continually improving the organization’s security posture. What can be done to dramatically reduce the time to detect a threat that would otherwise go unnoticed for months? How do you reduce security risks when security expertise is hard to come by and retain? How do keep false positives from distracting your team from the real threats? How can processes and technology boost the effectiveness of your scarce security resources?

Join your industry peers, industry thought leaders and the HPE Security ArcSight team to gain best practices and real-world examples of how organizations are successfully addressing these thorny challenges.

Network Security

Today’s digital workplace that includes mobile users and devices, BYOD, guests and IoT is pushing the boundaries regarding traditional edge and perimeter security. Risks are amplified due to user behavior, mobile apps, unknown device types and the lack of a cohesive protection model. Legacy AAA, NAC and traffic inspection is not enough.

Join us to better understand how integration features and the exchange of context between policy management, MDM/EMM, MFA, firewalls and SIEM solutions provide a new model for securing today’s workplace – in the enterprise, retail, healthcare, education, government or large public venues.

Enabling Secure Digital Transformation

As physical and digital worlds collide, organizations are increasingly reliant on their IT systems to empower their business operations and accelerate business value. The digital world gives rise to extended enterprise eco-systems, which increases the volume and types of risks, threats and vulnerabilities that can impact an organization. The catastrophic effect of a cyber-attack, the huge fines associated with compliance fails and the severe economic impact at the disabling of a data-center have long-standing effects on organizations, their reputations, brands and ultimately shareholder value. Join us to explore an integrated approach to security and risk management.
