We recently partnered with Forcepoint to host a breakfast briefing with their leading security expert, Mike Smart – Security Strategist.

The morning was a discussion and a demonstration that focuses on the interaction of people with data and how risk adaptive, human-centric security solutions can provide a better level of data protection.

The topics covered were:

  • Be in the driving seat of digital transformation – Is a cloud security gateway your new best friend?
  • Risk-adaptive protection – Putting your users at the centre of your security program

Meet the expert
