Cybersecurity Leadership Summit

Cybersecurity Leadership Summit

In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, security has become an integral aspect of every company’s technology strategy. With evolving cyberthreats, protecting sensitive data and ensuring the integrity of digital assets has become a top priority for CXOs and IT leaders. Enterprises are increasingly focusing on building robust cyber defenses to fortify their technology infrastructure against potential attacks. This involves implementing a multi-layered approach to cybersecurity that encompasses not only traditional methods like firewalls and antivirus software but also leveraging cutting-edge technologies for resilient security.

Cybersecurity Leadership Summit, powered by Palo Alto Networks and in association with CORE Media, brought together global leaders and top CXOs from across India for insightful conversations on the latest trends influencing digital transformation and evolving security technology worldwide. This unique forum offered access to cutting-edge research, expert speakers, and global Palo Alto Networks leadership.

Anil Valluri, Managing Director & Vice President, India & SAARC, Palo Alto Networks extended a warm welcome, providing a glimpse into Platformization. He elaborated that consolidating security solutions in a unified platform can streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and improve an organization's overall security posture.

Following Mr. Valluri's insightful talk, Michael Kelley, Senior Vice President-Worldwide Shared Services, at Palo Alto Networks took the stage to deliver a keynote on 'The Need for Cybersecurity Consolidation'. He addressed the growing challenges of managing a complex security landscape with disparate tools and the compelling benefits of consolidating security solutions to achieve better visibility, control, and cost effectiveness.

In conversation with Mayanti Langer Binny, popular Indian Cricket Journalist, Mr. Ravi Shastri, a Cricketing Icon and living legend shared his unique perspective on Leadership, Team Building, and Work Ethics.

In today's dynamic cybersecurity landscape, the traditional approach of merely detecting threats post-occurrence is insufficient. Enterprises now recognize the importance of proactively preventing threats before they manifest. Next-generation security solutions, enhanced with consolidation have evolved this paradigm, prioritizing prevention over reaction. By harnessing AI and ML for real-time analysis, these innovative solutions not only identify but also block potential threats across applications, endpoints, and cloud environments.

This comprehensive approach is further strengthened by consolidating diverse security tools and platforms. By streamlining siloed defenses into a unified whole, a consolidated architecture enables faster threat detection and response, enhances visibility and control, reduces cost and complexity, and improves scalability.

Anoop Mathur, Founder, CORE Media, initiated the conversation with Orcun Tezel, Vice President, Systems Engineering, Asia Pacific & Japan, Palo Alto Networks; Dr.Satvinder Madhok, VP and CIO- APMEA, Cybersecurity Operations, Governance, Risk, Controls, Audits and Compliance.,BiTS-Wipro; Rishi Rajpal, Vice President Global Security, Concentrix; and Rahul Sharma, CIO, Tata Projects on “From Threat Detection to Threat Prevention: Empowering Enterprises with Next-Generation Solutions and Consolidation.”

The session offered valuable insights into today's security landscape, exploring the transition from reactive to proactive security strategies. It emphasized the role of cutting-edge technologies such as AI and ML, alongside consolidation efforts, in effectively reducing cyberattack risks. This empowers enterprises to operate with increased resilience.

Palo Alto Networks held a felicitation ceremony for the Changemakers, acknowledging their outstanding accomplishments in driving excellence and fostering innovation. These organizations, along with their IT leaders, have demonstrated innovation, strategic planning, and implemented effective strategies to achieve their business objectives.
