Cloud adoption, a hybrid workforce and growing adoption of SASE architectures has seen one of the most rapid shifts in networking and security over recent decades. To keep pace with dynamic business requirements, and with apps, data and users now anywhere and everywhere, organisations have also dramatically increased the attack surface that they need to protect. First-generation ZTNA solutions have only solved some of these security challenges - we now need to evolve to ZTNA 2.0. In this session, our Zero Trust Expert and cyber advisor - Riccardo Galbiati will share with you

  • How your attack surface has shifted and why Zero Trust has a bigger role to play
  • Zero Trust misconceptions and why ZTNA does not go far enough to protect you
  • SASE done right and why ZTNA 2.0 is so critical to your business success
  • Going beyond compliance to ensure highest standards of data privacy and protection
  • The impacts of remote working on cyber security – setbacks and comebacks
  • The cyber security arms race – how can financial services organisations keep ahead of threat actors?
  • How will the security threat-scape evolve over the next decade?

In the face of skyrocketing cyber risk, detecting and responding to attacks is no longer enough. Organizations must take proactive steps to prevent threats before they happen, and to recover if compromised. In this session, Darktrace unveil an ambitious new approach to security, with core engines powering AI technologies to prevent, detect, respond, and ultimately heal from attacks. Together, these engines combine to strengthen organizations’ security posture in a virtuous AI feedback ‘loop,’ which provides powerful end-to-end, bespoke, and self-learning solutions unique to each organisation.

We’ve solved "remote work" right? But have we solved “remote work securely"?   Do we still have a view of the Risks posed of your User's behavior and Governance over the SaaS applications they are using?  Learn how you can adopt a real-time assessment model of the risk posed by the broad adoption of SaaS Services, and safely enable your users without impacting their productivity.

  • Shift your passive Governance of SaaS usage to a real-time model with enforceable controls
  • Reduce your attack-surface by putting place guard-rails for users that do not impede their productivity, whilst delivering real-time User-Awareness Training
  • Consider approaches that protect your confidential and sensitive data and reduce the burden on your Incident Response teams by contextualising User Behaviour and making Content-Aware DLP the "last mile"


  • Snapshot of the threat landscape over the past year
  • How has infrastructure changed?
  • Defence in depth – threat reduction strategies to reducing exposure


  • Cyber warfare is now part of the arsenal used in wartime. Disruption of financial services, critical infrastructure and government services is now part of the overall plan
  • State funded hacking groups are at war with each other. Near unlimited resources are being poured into new forms of attacks and malware
  • History shows that these tools will find itself on the dark web available for sale which will be targeted towards NZ companies. What can the finance industry we do about it?
  • Tracing NZ’s progress with Open Data initiatives to date – what’s next?
  • Getting APIs, data privacy and consent right – gearing up for Open Banking success
  • Why success today hinges on leveraging data for the right opportunities, the right way

Threats are becoming more sophisticated, making detecting and responding increasingly more difficult in today’s complex environments. Could a mesh approach to security be the way to address people, process, and technology in your digital transformation strategy?

Learn how you can prepare for the future while maintaining control over your attack surface by:

  • Reducing operation complexity, while ensuring compliance
  • Closing security gaps and blind spots more effectively and affordably
  • Enabling a more agile response to security, and digital expansion       

We are currently in the middle of an explosion of digital information. Today, people expect access to applications and data, from anywhere, at any time, and on any device. But with so much information to monitor, how will you ensure a high level of security for your company?

In this session, Vijay Chaudhari, Saviynt’s Team Lead, Solutions Engineering, talks about protecting your people, data, and infrastructure in today’s rapidly accelerating digital landscape through Zero Trust. 

Come to learn more about:

  • The benefits of automation and machine learning – and how they can keep access secure
