IDC Security Conference 360 degree Security for Real Commercial Impact

In-Person Event | Gent | September 28, 2022


There are three main themes that businesses are looking at with care and attention: Trust, Security 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 Gent on the 28th 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
