IDC Security Conference 360 degree Security for Real Commercial Impact

In-Person Event | Oslo | September 21, 2022


There are three main themes that businesses are looking at with care and attention: Trust, Resiliency and Data sovereignty.

  • Trust has become a key aspect for businesses to measure and part of this involved security and privacy. The role of the CISO has evolved to becoming the Guardian of a Company's Trust metric.
  • Resiliency is a vital component for being able to withstand disruption, which comes from all directions (pandemic, supply shortage, inflation, extreme weather, massive scale cyber attacks).
  • Data sovereignty is important especially here in Europe with local and EU regulations, and there is an evolving discussion around digital sovereignty.

These three themes impact vendor security portfolio and approaches having a material impact on the commercial and structural evolution of platforms, products, and services - with for example Security-as-a-Service.

360-degree security has become a necessity with multi-layered approached offering the best protection. In terms of specific aeras, IDC identifies Identity, Managed Security Services, OT/IT convergence, Security-as-a-Service, Zero Trust, and Cloud security as key pillars underpinning a comprehensive strategy.

There is also growing attention to measuring and reducing risk and creating trustworthiness measurements for supply chains partners and third parties. We expect new European legislation around third-party security and risk auditing.

Join & be inspired! 

Join IDC's IT Security conference to deep dive into these areas with a broad section of industry thought leadership sharing and networking opportunities.

The conference will be held in Oslo on the 21st of September 2022, bringing together security leaders to:

  • Share experiences
  • Learn new techniques
  • Upgrade their strategies to exploit the latest innovative and advanced security techniques 
  • Mindset change to help raise levels of resilience and digital trust

Debunking Common Myths About XDR

Jesper Dromph

Regional Sales Leader, SentinelOne

There has been a tremendous buzz across the cybersecurity community about the emerging technology known as XDR (eXtended Detection & Response).

Unfortunately for the practitioner, there has yet to be a single definition widely accepted by both analysts and vendors perporting to be knowledgeable on the subject.

What is XDR and why should I consider the technology in my enterprise security stack? What should I expect from vendors who claim to have built the perfect mousetrap? What is reality, and what is just hype? This session is intended to walk the audience through some generally accepted value statements associated with XDR while attempting to debunk a few common myths that continue to muddy the the water for security teams.

From brain to vein – how information security in Statkraft became everyone’s business

Kari-Anne Larmerud

Corporate Information Security Responsible, Statkraft

Kari-Anne will show the importance of creating awareness and culture around information security.

In Statkraft, the business areas have the responsibility for their own information, which includes securing information against human vulnerabilities. Consequently, Statkraft has chosen to move information security out of IT and into the business. Statkraft believes that the corporate has a great responsibility to understand the risks associated with information security and to build a culture that minimizes the risk of employees making poor assessments in the event of potential cyberattacks. 

We believe information security is about attitudes, behavior and competence.
