SANTA CLARA, CA — Centrify, a leading provider of Zero Trust Security through the power of Next-Gen Access, today announced the second SecurIT: the Zero Trust Summit for CIOs and CSOs, in New York City on October 29-30. The invitation-only event, produced by CIO and CSO, will attract an audience of 400 of the most influential information technology, cybersecurity and business executives from mid-size to large companies across all industries. SecurIT is designed to educate IT and security executives on the groundswell taking place around Zero Trust Security, and how this groundbreaking approach is enabling technologies that improve access-based enterprise security.

WHAT: SecurIT attendees will gain up-to-the-minute knowledge of Zero Trust Security along with actionable insights they can put to work right away to answer critical questions about Zero Trust:

  • Why is Zero Trust emerging as a significant trend?
  • How are organizations implementing Zero Trust Security?
  • How does Zero Trust fit within a broader IT and security strategy?
  • What are the challenges in adopting Zero Trust?
  • What’s Zero Trust’s role in compliance?

Attendees will hear from organizations already implementing this approach to secure the enterprise, and learn why it’s critical to success in today’s increasingly security-focused business environment.

WHY: As catastrophic data breaches become more common in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, organizations are realizing that the old perimeter-based way of securing the enterprise no longer works. The concept of Zero Trust is rapidly moving from interest to adoption, and organizations are adopting a “never trust, always verify” approach to stay ahead of the security curve. As attackers breach what’s left of enterprise perimeters, they are no longer hacking in but rather logging in, using compromised or weak credentials to look and act like trusted users and seek out more privileged access. All of which explains why Zero Trust Security is generating more interest from technology and security leaders than any other security technology, according to the 2018 IDG Security Priorities Study.

WHO: SecurIT is an invitation-only event for executives and other security decision-makers. Journalists can attend on October 30 only, and should request an invitation as soon as possible, as space is limited.

Confirmed keynote and session speakers include:

  • Tony Scott, former Federal CIO for the U.S. Federal Government
    • Opening Keynote: “Protecting Your Company and Your Customers from Cyber Attacks
  • John Kindervag, Zero Trust founder and former analyst at Forrester Research
    • Keynote: “The Cyberwar: How Zero Trust Can Help
  • Dr. Chase Cunningham, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
