|Who:||Larry Whiteside is the vice president of healthcare and critical infrastructure for Optiv. In his role, Whiteside focuses on helping security executives in these complex and important fields develop a comprehensive security program that balances risk and aligns with the overall business goals.|
|What:||It's no secret that approaches to identity and access management have evolved rapidly over the last several years to meet changes in how we transact business. Insider threats and external breaches are rising causing organizations to implement a "whack-a-mole" approach to security. In this session, Whiteside, a former CISO, will share a strategy that puts identity at the core of a security program by bringing together existing cyber security investments.|
|When:||Thursday, December 1, 2016 from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. PST|
|Where:||Caesars Palace, Las Vegas|
