Keynote Presentation (20 min): How is Digital Transformation Increasing the Attack Surface of the Enterprise?

Speaker: Michael F. D. Anaya, Head of Cyber Risk (Cortex), Palo Alto Networks | Elizabeth KrizayCyber Risk Supervisor, Palo Alto Networks

Abstract:  According to Forrester, U.S. tech investment will drop 1.5% overall but CIO spending on cloud platforms will accelerate in 2021. A big issue facing your Security team: many security vendors only focus on the big two, AWS and Azure. All you need is a credit card and valid corporate email address to start a development, subdivision, or other rogue instance. In fact, Expanse observed companies spinning up an average of 3.5 new cloud instances everyday, and many of those new cloud services were actually provisioned on weekends. For this reason, many IT and security professionals face a tough truth. You probably have at least twice as many cloud providers than you think. Join us for a discussion on how digital transformation is increasing the attack surface of the enterprise.
