#BoxWorks Sessions: Security in the Cloud

By

We’re only a little more than two weeks until BoxWorks, and we’ve already announced an incredible lineup of speakers. No matter your passion — government, enterprise app development, or the new guard of enterprise software — we’ll have engaging sessions to fuel your imagination.

Another major theme at BoxWorks will be security. We’re seeing Box customers of all sizes turning to Box to help address their security challenges, especially around unstructured data and business content. And we have a full track of security-related sessions slated for BoxWorks, led by Box security experts, cloud visionaries and companies that are leading their own security transformations, including Duke Energy, Splunk, Equinix and Scripps Networks.

Here are my top five security sessions at BoxWorks. Make sure they’re on your agenda!

Maximizing Mobile Security
The intersection of mobility and security is a hot topic these days. In this panel discussion, join security and product leads at National Gypsum, Mobile Iron, Docusign and Centrify to debate strategies for tackling mobile security — from mobile app management to identity management — and what the future landscape of mobile security looks like.

Simplicity is Security
Next, I’m leading a panel about how cloud architecture and infrastructure are changing the landscape of enterprise security. Notably, we’re seeing an evolution of five key security elements: Content, Identity, Devices, Apps and Intelligence. In this session, you’ll also get perspectives and lessons learned from McAfee, MolsonCoors, and AlliedBarton.

Five Ways to Make Your Business More Secure with Box
Theory and big ideas will get you so far, but it’s also critical to hear the true stories from companies who’ve tackled similar security challenges in different ways — and sometimes with different results. This session will give you that perspective, and walk through the different ways you can use Box to improve the security of your critical content from Duke Energy, Razorfish and Equinix.

Secure Content Collaboration for Media and Entertainment
Last year, at BoxWorks we went summer blockbuster and featured the extreme use cases our media and entertainment customers bring to Box. This year, we’ll focus on protecting that content — see how creative pros securely create, share and collaborate at Dolby Labs, Scripps Network, and New York Public Theater.

Balancing Security and Ease of Use
Finally, this session will dive into the subtle challenges of building a more collaborative enterprise – a feat that requires a delicate balance of openness and control. Sit in and see how three completely different companies in different industries made different decisions about collaboration and navigated the pitfalls along the way.

Please join us at BoxWorks, and stay tuned for even more speaker spotlights. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook as we share updates on the conference, developer day, and cool giveaways (the after party with Blink 182 should be pretty epic, too)!
