IDC Security Conference 360 degree Security for Real Commercial Impact

In-Person Event | Helsinki | September 20, 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 Helsinki on the 20th 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

The Ugly Truth About Your DevSecOps Guidelines and Security Policies

Bruno Amaro Almeida

Head of Technology & Architecture | CTO | Consultant in Cloud, Security and Data, Fortum Corporation

Today everyone understands why cyber security is crucial to any business organization. Yet, most software engineering teams building products and services still struggle to improve their security posture.

Organisations, especially large enterprises, invest large sums in training, creating DevSecOps guidelines that follow industry best practices and applying security policies to the whole organization. However, are those actually applied practice? Are engineering teams adopting security practices?

In this talk, we are going to explore how organisations, especially their SW engineering teams, can truly assess and measure their security posture, making sure that organizational guidelines and policies actually make sense and are followed in practice.
