    As usual, chapter elections will be held at this March meeting. If you are a Chapter member, please try to attend.  Abstract:

    Cloud app security is the top priority for many enterprises and Gartner believes that in only a few years, more than 85% of enterprises will have deployed a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) to help them address their needs. Whether securing data in the Office 365 suite, ensuring compliance in Salesforce, or getting control over shadow IT, information security leaders are exploring how CASBs can make an impact in their organizations. Join Steve Levin, Regional Director for Netskope, a leader in CASB, for a lively session on the top five CASB use cases that have the highest-impact on cloud-consuming enterprises.
    Attendees will learn:

    • Industry-specific data that’s foundational to any cloud security business case
    • The five highest-impact CASB use cases from our customers, demonstrated from the perspective of users and security professionals
    • How those use cases translate to “must-have” requirements for any CASB evaluation

    Presenter’s Biography:

    A 20 year veteran in the industry, Steve Levin, Regional Director for Netskope, started his career with the first application software company, Management Science America (MSA), as a programmer. Steve held many customer-facing roles at MSA, including Implementation leadership for Supply Chain Management and 4th Generation Languages. After his tenure at MSA, Steve moved to different roles in our industry that included Enterprise Performance Management and Business Intelligence (Cognos/IBM).

    After Steve’s tenure in the “application” space, he eventually moved into the emerging security area. His expertise in security for the past 8 years spans from Identity and Access Management, Adaptive Authentication, SSO, Database Encryption, User Behavior Analytics, and, most recently, CASB.
