13:50Can Good User Experience Coexist with a Strong Security Posture
With most employees working from home and consumers increasing online engagement, digital business models are becoming even more critical to M&E’s business strategy than before. The battle for customer loyalty, engagement and revenue is being fought online and there are two major success criteria that will determine victory - user experience and security. Conventional thinking would have us believe that these two are antithetical to each other - that increased security controls result in poor user experience and vice versa. Market leading organizations are able to roll out digital services quickly, while simultaneously driving security excellence. In this session, we will look at some of the best practices for security and technology practices to consider.

Sid Deshpande, Security Technology & Strategy Director, Akamai Technologies
