Listen to Roland and Hybrid Pathways discuss securing the next generation workplace. The Security Executives of the future are shifting from only stopping bad things from happening to supporting innovation efforts geared to accelerate the business. The most important asset of any company is its employees. Through the Pandemic, many CISO’s had to work feverishly to enable new ways to work and still keep the company secure. Security Leaders are supporting a complex workforce with changing expectations of technology use. Security Leaders have an opportunity to bring focus and positive business results to decisioning, enablement, and employee engagement as companies define their “new normal."

Security executives have wide responsibilities across the gamut of cyber operations, incident response, forensics, data defense and access assurance, identity management, business resiliency, risk management, and so much more. The reality is if you are a multinational company, you simply cannot afford to have 100% of all the necessary functions and services staffed fully around the globe. Often, the infrequency of the use of those services in specific jurisdictions prohibits staffing them there until the day you need them. This discussion will focus on how security leaders can have the most effective operational presence with the least cost.

Beyond Shifting Left

The efforts to move core elements of technology security and privacy controls, quality assurance, and accreditation closer to “at the time of development” has accelerated exponentially in the past 3 years. A well-developed Security and Privacy By-Design program enables shifting left through process, technology, and organizational design. In this video, Roland will share his experience and some design imperatives that can set you on the right By-Design path.

Upscaling Through Cloud

Thursday Jul 06, 2023

Hybrid Pathways and industry recognized security expert, Roland Cloutier, talk about how a business can use their cloud migration as a catalyst to advance their security capabilities. Security executives know that protecting complex technical infrastructures with varying levels of aged technology is a cost pit that detracts from critical next generation needs. Often, it also detracts from their ability to upscale and advance their programs as they have to balance protecting what they have versus preparing for the future. In this complexity lies an opportunity to bridge the old with the new, advance your defensive posture, and be a business leader that helps accelerate your company’s digital transformation.

Hybrid Pathways and Roland Cloutier talk about practical ways to increase your business operational time to value utilizing Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). Every CISSO has come across the question of “do I need” or “is it better” to use an MSSP. Sometimes it's for cost, sometimes it's for workforce leverage, and at other times it's during a season of change. In this interview we'll discuss ways to use MSSP's as a force multiplier to help you achieve operational readiness, global capabilities, and reduced costs through the innovative use of MSSPs.

Getting Identity Right

Hybrid Pathways interviews Roland Cloutier to talk about Why Getting Identity Right for Your Business Matters - how Identity becomes the core element for Zero Trust. Businesses that are successful in managing their complex regulatory requirements in the areas of data protection, consumer protection, privacy, and do so in a way that is comprehensive, repeatable, and provable; all have one thing in common. They got identity right. If you boil down all of the requirements, all of the controls, and all of questions being asked, it often gets down to some basic questions like who has access, who accessed “it”, how do you prevent access, where did they access it from, and how do you know? All straightforward questions but a nightmare for organizations that have a limited handle on their identity strategy or worse, no strategy at all.
