Disruptor Day Netherlands 2023


Join Distology for a special episode of Delve, which was recorded in front of a live audience in Utrecht as part of Disruptor Day Netherlands 2023.

Breaking away from the usual format, Distology’s CTO Lance Williams has invited a whole host of cybersecurity specialists to share their thoughts on some of the latest automation-harnessing technology services super-powering cybersecurity teams in their continued fight against cyber villains.


This Panel Discussion Explores the Challenges Of:

  • Operational Technology (OT) – able to work together in harmony? Digitally awakened machinery based on legacy systems are forming part of the attack surface that organisations need to protect, yet incredibly difficult to secure without impacting operational excellence. How can IT help OT teams to close this loop?
  • Automating Governance, Risk & Compliance: How can CISO’s take advantage of automation to ensure security investments are consciously competent? ISO/GDPR/SOC2 – can this process be automated?
  • Identity Access Management Design – Become the choreographer of your identity journey by putting human centric design at the forefront of development
  • Data First Approach to Security – In a world of porous networks and interconnected infrastructures, how do we protect our data highways and keep the spies out of our lanes?
  • Human vs Machine – With data overload facing almost all IT teams and alert fatigue setting in, can we trust machines to ‘take over the wheel’ of our cybersecurity journey? Where does the liability lie if an error is made?
