The CSO50 Conference went virtual this year, and brought together an impressive list of CSOs, CISOs and other security executives. As Gold sponsors along with SailPoint, the show was a great opportunity to interact with old and new friends in the security world and discuss our latest offerings. Two of the hottest topics turned out to be our subscription service, which combines the implementation and support of SailPoint’s SaaS identity platform, and our free IAM Essentials workshop.
Below you’ll find a 5 minute video recap of the conference along with a list of some of our favorite moments. There was so much great content from the Keynote’s and the general sessions that it was hard to pick out highlights, but we’ve done our best.

SVP of Information Security and Risk Management
The Walt Disney Company
As part of the Disney team, Greg had an interesting perspective about “legacy of the brand” considerations. He also spoke about their goal of being as close to the business as possible when making decisions, and how that extended to the creation of the theme park in China.
“The closer we are to the business, the more custom those business decisions become – whether it’s a theme ride of an application.”

Lori and our very own Ryan Cluff discuss how rapid digital transformation, distributed cloud environments, and a remote workforce are placing identity at the center of IT security. They also discuss the challenges that companies with legacy systems face.
“The threat landscape is changing so quickly and our IT environments are so much more dynamic, that having legacy systems that are based on static policy just don’t scale…”
CSO Editor Roundtable
Group of Editors
This roundtable offered an interesting discussion on the changing culture around security. CSO editors from Australia, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States talked about what they’re seeing in their areas of the world. Their topics included the challenge or ransomware, the impact of data breeches, and how the relationship between CISO’s and their boards are changing.
Roland touches on many interesting subject, including how automation can be used to deal with the global regulatory changes and the CISOs ability to navigate them. They also have a great conversation about how being forced to focus on tactical vs strategic issues can hurt the business.
