This is the 16th edition of the IDC Security Roadshow, which takes place in 15 countries in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) regions. The main theme is: From IT Security, through Information Security – purely to Business Security. Technology is just one component of how we secure our organizations — processes are important too, as are architecture, people, policies, and governance. Data and information are at the heart of what organizations strive to protect, so in fact we are talking about information security. And once we frame the discussion in terms of digital assets and digital business, it's clear that what is at stake is business security.

IDC Keynote: Business Security: Risk and Resilience

Mark Child
Research Manager, European Security, IDC CEMA

Technology is just one component of how we secure our organizations. People, processes, policies, and governance are all crucial too, to protect the data assets that confer value on digital businesses. In short, security cannot be separated as a technology issue – it is an intrinsic part of the business. Security needs to be considered in terms of risk: What operational impact will a cyberattack have? Could a data breach undermine our digital business strategy? What about compliance and reputational risk? Only through assessing risk can we make appropriate decisions regarding security strategy. A key focus of that strategy should be developing Cyber Resilience - the ability to recover systems and regain operational capability in spite of cyber attacks. Building a resilient organization, on the basis of risk-based security strategy, is fundamental to successful digital business.
