Presenters: Simon Gibson, CISO at Gigamon and Katie Moussouris, founder and CEO of Luta Security

Location: Oceanside E, Level 2, Mandalay Bay Conference Center

Topic:  IT transformation requires partners to deliver results. However, as the supply chain expands, it introduces greater security risks. Organizations might not know if or when something in the supply chain fails. Real-time visibility and control across the infrastructure are necessary to complement the forensics capabilities required for post-incident analysis. How can SecOps teams analyze the resulting increased network data volume to identify and stop threats? Learn how Gigamon and its security partners can help SecOps teams better identify and combat threats.
