GISEC 2022: Lookout to Show Off its SSE Platform

Published

on

Bahaa Hudairi, the Regional Sales Director for META at Lookout, says organisations have left doors open in the collaboration tools and other cloud technologies

Are you participating in GISEC 2022?
Yes – at GISEC, Lookout can be found at the CyberKnight’s Stand at C35.

What is your theme of participation at the event?
Our goal for GISEC is to showcase how SSE technologies can protect an organizations’ entire data path from endpoint to cloud. When it comes to protecting against ransomware, data leakage, insider threats, compromised accounts, and unknown devices, we are in the fight to win it. That is our core principle and our primary message at GISEC 2022.

What is the general agenda / planned list of activities at the event?
We will use GISEC as a platform to showcase the Lookout SSE platform. The Lookout SSE solution enables organizations to secure their data while supporting a modern, anywhere anytime workforce with consistent cloud-delivered security policies regardless of where data is stored.

In addition to integrating Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) into a single platform, Lookout SSE integrates policy and data security enforcements deeply across web, SaaS, and private applications. These include User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM). As a result, the Lookout SSE solution delivers an easy-to-use unified user interface across SWG, CASB, and ZTNA that simplifies policy and reporting workflows.

Lookout SSE consolidates CASB, ZTNA, and SWG with Endpoint Security into a unified platform that reduces cost and complexity while simplifying management of security and access across all endpoints, clouds, and on-premises infrastructures. By analyzing telemetry data from users, endpoints, and the data they’re accessing, Lookout dynamically enforces policies with varying degrees of granularity.

What according to you are the challenges faced by CISOs and Cybersecurity experts today?
Apps and data are increasingly residing in the cloud, and users expect seamless access from anywhere on any device. But security controls have been deployed with disparate on-premises tools that are anchored to data centers. As a result, most organizations have lost control of their data security as they migrate to the cloud.

Also, Software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms are both at risk from the regional rise in threat-actor activity seen during the pandemic. Because of the widespread privileged access traditionally found among users in today’s organizations, a ransomware criminal does not need to look long for an inroad. Organizations have also left doors open in the collaboration tools and other cloud technologies they used to deliver business continuity during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Will you be running any offline/online engagements alongside the event?
At GISEC, Lookout will speak on the X-Labs Stage about how to “Achieve Enhanced Cloud Security and Protect Against Ransomware”.

GISEC GLOBAL launches CISO Circle

Published

on

GISEC GLOBAL, the most connected and influential cybersecurity exhibition and conference in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), has launched its CISO Circle platform for chief information security officers, government leaders, and cybersecurity experts. CISO Circle, the new invite-only community launched by Dubai World Trade Centre, the organisers of GISEC GLOBAL, will give regional industry experts the opportunity to strategically discuss pressing cybersecurity issues with their peers, through discussion that will encourage proactive collaboration and information sharing.

GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will deep-dive into the most pressing cybersecurity challenges affecting enterprises and governments in the post-pandemic era, including the dangers posed by state-sponsored hackers, organised hacking groups, and insider threats, all of which now represent a constant menace in the digital age. HE Dr. Mohamed Al Kuwaiti, Head of Cyber Security, UAE Government, said, “The UAE Cyber Security council fully supports GISEC’s initiative of creating an InfoSec leaders inner circle with the mission to discuss key challenges to help build cyber resilience of businesses in the UAE.”

The first CISO Circle meeting will be hosted alongside the upcoming edition of GITEX GLOBAL, the super-connector technology event organised by Dubai World Trade Centre taking place from 10th-14th October. Organised in partnership with the UAE’s most influential cyber entities to curate and prioritise regional cybersecurity agendas, including the UAE Cybersecurity Council, Dubai Electronic Security Center, the Telecommunications & Digital Government Regulatory Authority, and Dubai Police, GISEC GLOBAL 2023, hosted from 14th-16th March, will be a meeting point for the cybersecurity ecosystem that unites the industry’s leading brands and minds during three days of unparalleled conference sessions, keynotes, partner seminars, and interactive sessions.

Cybersecurity experts on the GISEC GLOBAL CISO Circle:

Ahmed Al Zarouni, GISEC GLOBAL advisory board member, said, “GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle is a significant component of the widespread cybersecurity culture, which is crucial in advancing the technological requirements of modern lifestyles and services. GISEC GLOBAL looks forward to growing and supporting the region’s cybersecurity community and ecosystem.”

Amer Sharaf, Director, Compliance, Support, And Alliances, Dubai Electronic Security Center (DESC), said, “GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will play an important role in driving thought leadership in regional cybersecurity. At a time where information sharing and collaboration between governments is essential in mitigating threats, GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will provide opportunities for cybersecurity leaders to strengthen their security posture through knowledge sharing.”

Fuad Al Ansari, GISEC GLOBAL advisory board member, said, “As malicious actors continue to exploit cybersecurity weaknesses for their own gain, it is now more important than ever for CISOs to collaborate in order to enhance their own knowledge to increase the defences of their organisation. The GISEC GLOBAL CISO Circle will actively support the region’s cybersecurity community with information that will be vital in fending off increasingly sophisticated attacks.”

Hussain AlKhalsan, CISO, Zand, said, “As the cyberthreat landscape continues to evolve, CISOs are facing an increasingly demanding and varied volume of threats. Interaction between industry peers is hugely valuable for chief information security officers, and I look forward to participating in GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle’s initiatives, which will give CISOs important insight into critical cybersecurity issues.”
