A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by Open Systems

Security teams are facing increasing challenges in protecting against the broadening threatscape, where major technology trends, from cloud adoption to shadow IT and of course, remote working, have created new risks and vulnerabilities across every industry.

While most would jump at the chance to hire and retain security staff to provide round the clock protection, the IT security industry needs about three million more cybersecurity workers (ISC2 2021) to handle growing threats.

This, combined with the proliferation of point security products, which can lead to integration challenges and siloed views, is significantly impacting security posture, leaving organisations lagging behind in their detection and response capabilities.

Join Open Systems and a select group of IT security peers to discuss your own hiring and retention challenges, how you’re evolving your response to the changing attack surface and how to navigate the increase in point security products while unlocking the full potential of your existing Microsoft investments.

of your business.
