February–October - IDC's Security Roadshow examines global and regional trends related to security and provides actionable advice and best practices for organizations in an era of digital transformation.
A fundamental requirement for successful digital business is the ability to rapidly roll out new digital-based products and services for customers and partners. The challenge is to enable this digital transformation, while maintaining (or even improving!) the organization’s security posture and remaining competitive and focused on business goals. Safeguarding customers, partners, and data assets, in tandem with managing risk, are critical for enterprises in the DX era. However, reactive security is insufficient; organizations need to become proactive when it comes to security. Hunting for threats and minimizing risk must be the new normal.

Topics: Cybersecurity, Cloud Security, Mobile Security, Application Security, Security Intelligence, Cyber Resilience, Incident Response, Threat Detection, Vulnerability Assessment, Risk Management, Data Loss Prevention, Identity and Access Management, Policy Monitoring, Data Protection Regulations, Big Data, IoT, Social Media and Security
