Keynote Presentation - 10:10 am - 10:40 am
As organizations adopt new technologies and utilize the cloud for business innovation and growth, security teams are challenged with ensuring that those initiatives and missions are successful. They are faced with creating an effective security program from a fragmented patchwork of solutions and data sources that do not easily interoperate without a great deal of custom development and integration.To help address this industry wide problem, IBM joined forces with 25 other cybersecurity vendors - including McAfee and Crowdstrike - to form the Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA) to promote open and interoperable cybersecurity. OCA members subscribe to the mantra of "Integrate Once, Reuse Everywhere" to enable security teams to focus on solving security issues rather than getting tools to work together. Join IBM Security's Chris Bontempo, VP of Marketing for Cloud & Cognitive Solutions, to hear how the OCA members are working together and contributing foundational technologies under the open-source Apache 2.0 license to enable security solutions to communicate with each other over a standard fabric during the entire threat management life cycle.
