Fortifying digital frontiers

4 December 2023, America 11:30 am - 1:00 pm BST

How can security and IT continue to lead the cybersecurity charge amid today’s economic challenges?

Ensuring the protection of your IT environment and the privacy of your data is essential to fostering customer trust and acquiring new business. But with the resource constraints many IT departments face today, your organization may not have the time or budget to learn, adopt, implement, and document new security measures.

So, how are next-gen leaders fortifying their organizations' digital frontiers against the backdrop of economic challenges? What are the latest trends in cybersecurity and risk management?

Join thought leaders from Lumen, along with a group of likeminded peers, for a valuable exchange of ideas on these pressing matters. In this digital roundtable, we’ll discuss innovative approaches security and IT executives are adopting to protect their assets.
