Palo Alto Networks & Co.Next Executive Lunch Roundtable

A More Secure Everything: Managing Risk, Securing DevOps and Increasing Agility 


We would like to personally invite you to join us at our Executive Roundtable on Monday, January 21st, 2019, during the SecurIT19 event. 

The demand for organizations to be more agile and stay competitive is driving a change in the way companies manage their development process and data. Cloud adoption is accelerating even faster than the market expected and can easily turn small gaps into large holes in your security posture. 

Rapid development is key to innovating quickly but shouldn't leave you insecure. Know that many of these risks can be reduced with fairly simple cultural and organizational shifts that break down silos across InfoSec and development teams, spreading the responsibility for security across the organization. 

We'll discuss how to work across your own organization to reduce risk, while increasing agility, through cultural and organizational shifts that break down silos, and balance your security across the entire business. Please join Fred Streeftland, Chief Security Officer for NEEUR, Palo Alto Networks, and Sebastjan Ziga Cof, Managing Director, Co.Next, as we explore the changing landscape of security as more workloads move to the cloud.
Topics to be covered include: 

  • Business implications around cloud migration and risk management concerns 
  • Dissolving boundaries between AppDev and SecOps with a DevSecOps approach
  • Zero Trust methodologies in the cloud
  • Cloud as the eyes and ears of IoT 

We’re intentionally keeping the number of spaces to a minimum to foster a lively and meaningful conversation. We hope you can join us for this vibrant, free-flowing and engaging event. Please register using the form on the right.
