Cybersecurity's Top Leaders Discuss the Future of Security at Security Summit

Twenty thought leaders in ten sessions shared insights and solutions on the latest evolutions of cybersecurity. Glenn Katz, SVP & General Manager, Comcast Business Enterprise Solutions, highlighted the need for innovation, which was the informal theme of the event, when he said, 'The perimeter is now everywhere. We can't trust anything anymore.'

New network strategies and expanding attack surfaces require new paradigms, such as automating security policy. According to Ruvi Kitov, Chairman, CEO, and Co-Founder at Tufin, organizations need to 'increase agility and streamline collaboration to maximize security.' Speakers also emphasized that organizations need to understand the importance of the shared responsibility model, incorporate security into the foundation of every infrastructure, create comprehensive security strategies, and remember that basic cyber hygiene is still-and always will be-relevant.
