IDC Security Roadshow Elevating Security for Digital Trust & Risk Management​

DIGITAL Event | Budapest | May 20, 2020


Statement on the format change of IDC Security Event due to the Coronavirus

The health and safety of our customers and employees is IDC's number one priority. As domestic details around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) become clearer, we have been closely monitoring the situation in order to respond accordingly.

After careful consideration, IDC has made the decision to transform our usual Security Roadshow into an online event. We believe that we should emphasize the opportunities given during this time and accelerate our digital transformation in the event sector as well.

The conference will be held on the 20th of May 2020 in a Webinar Format.

We have made this choice out of an abundance of caution and believe it is the correct decision given the evolving public health concerns. The potential risk to the well-being of the event attendees and our staff is something IDC takes seriously. Please visit our conference website for the event updates.


The security industry has passed an inflection point, security operational excellence now a prerequisite for every organization to function securely, efficiently, and effectively. Risk management goes hand in hand with that, quantifying security measures in the context of the business to demonstrate the business value of security.

IDC views the achievement of lasting "digital trust" as the apex — the realization of full alignment between security and business, providing a fundamental basis of trust that connects the organization, employees, partners, and customers

IDC’s Security Roadshow 2020 will provide you with the vision to navigate the security landscape of the new digital business environment.

Security and Business Continuity Through COVID-19 and Beyond

Mark Child

Research Manager, European Security, IDC CEMA

The COVID-19 pandemic brought disruption to businesses on an unprecedented scale, yet many of the challenges were already present: enablement of secure digital transformation, remote workers accessing corporate applications and data from outside a secure perimeter, and cybercriminals probing for any vulnerability through which to penetrate the network. The crisis invoked response at speed and scale, unveiling gaps in security programs, while further challenges remain, such as building cyber resilience in “the new normal” and ensuring business continuity. Risk assessment frameworks need to be updated and threat exposure re-evaluated, while building digital trust takes on even greater importance as digital relationships become pervasive. Finally, as organizations look to the future and beyond COVID-19, they should seek to assess which aspects of the new normal have brought broader business benefits and should be retained. Despite the current turbulence, security must maintain a strategic focus in line with the broader enterprise strategy and be a key partner to the business.

Cyber-threats evolve just like the digital world around us. The more we become "digital", the more vulnerable we are. Cyber security has become an integral part of everyday life and reaches far beyond IT teams. Visibility is the key, and awareness is the way. How do we reach audiences who are not interested or simply do not understand "our" language? How to engage and maintain the attention of Management Boards as key partners in this process?

1. AI, ML, and Security Automation

Moderator:István Ragó, CISO, Erste Bank Zrt.

Although the human factor remains the most important element of protection, the increasing volume and more sophisticated nature of attacks make it absolutely necessary to incorporate new elements and approaches into security. The application of artificial intelligence might play a critical role in these terms as well. During the conversation, the application of Artificial Intelligence and possible scenarios will be discussed.

2. The importance of risk management in the security strategy

Moderator:Zsolt Kálmán , CISO, Keler Zrt

As the IT infrastructure becomes more complex and the threats companies are facing have increased, a well-designed risk-based security strategy will become extremely important. It is a particularly strong incentive for companies to enter the era of Platform 3. As a result, the discourse explores the strategic, risk-based approach to existing and new threats.

3. Digital Trust 

Moderator:Szilviusz Tapasztó , IT Security Leader, Waberer’s International Zrt.

As digitalization progresses, it is becoming particularly important for our partners, customers, and employees to move more confidently in the changed world and to be reassured that their employers and service providers are protected. In order to make this possible, companies need to pay attention to all individuals including their training and in this particular case, their control as well. During the discussion, we will negotiate the points that will help developing this sense of security.
