Keynote: A Proactive, Automated Approach to Application Risk Management

Keeping up with requests for new software, updates to software (especially security updates to software) is a constant effort. While this activity mitigates some risks, the very exercise of introducing new and updated software into the enterprise brings with it operational risks of its own. The implications are significant.

To manage both security and operational risk requires employing a comprehensive, proactive risk assessment as an integral part of the Application Readiness process. Because of the complexity and dependencies of modern applications as well as their exposure to cyber-attacks, operational and security risk assessment is now essential.

Join Bob Kelly, Manager, Product Management and Mike O’Connor, Senior Solutions Engineering Manager at Flexera and learn about the complexity and dependencies of modern applications as well as their exposure to security and operational risks.

In this session, you will learn:

The Sources of Application Risk

  • Security Risks
  • Operational Risks

The Challenges of Managing/Mitigating Application Risk

  • Automation
  • Reporting
  • Ongoing, Proactive Risk Management

The countdown is on to January 14, 2020 — the date support for Windows 7 will end. While this sounds like a long way off, there’s a lot of work your company needs to do to ensure a successful transition.

End of life means no more security updates or technical support. And with nearly 50 percent of computers running Windows 7, this will affect many companies.

Additional sessions:

  • Orin Thomas, The Security Case for Migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10
  • Eric Rux, What to Consider When Looking at Microsoft Office Alternatives
  • Nick Cavalancia, Maintaining User Continuity – The Hardest Part of Migrating to Windows 10
