Intelligent Cybersecurity Engineered For Banking Innovation

Adrian Danciu
Senior Regional Director, South Eastern Europe, Fortinet

The financial services industry has seen drastic technology-led changes over the past few years. Many executives look to their IT departments to improve efficiency and facilitate game-changing innovation – while somehow also lowering costs and continuing to support legacy systems. Customers are now demanding better services, seamless experiences and more value for their money. In order to drive the innovation and digital transformation, new applications and systems are added that increase the attach surface and exposure to cyber-risks. In this new context, choosing the right infrastructure security solutions has become paramount.

Modern Data Protection Built for Modern Challenges

Dan Popa
Territory Manager for Romania, Bulgaria and Albania, Veeam Romania

There’s a new expectation of today’s data - that it moves to a new state of intelligence, able to automatically anticipate need and meet demand, and move securely across multi-cloud infrastructures. Getting there requires a new approach that merges the traditional disciplines of data backup and recovery, data protection and data security. Moving from policy-based to behavior-based management to make data both intelligent, and ultimately, self-governing.
