Security Strategy 2023: Managing Risk to Enable Digital Business

IDC Security Forum

In 2023, the European cyber security landscape continues to progress at high speed.
Luckily, we know what you need to know!

At IDC, we know that data tell a story, we know how to listen to it. Join IDC's security conference to get insights into security and privacy technology evolution and viewpoints on top-of-mind themes for security practitioners.
What is on the mind of CISO's? The disruption from the pandemic has not yet ceased, and yet we face new ones already. Security teams remain understaffed, yet they need to protect critical business assets and help to engender trust and steer the complex course of compliance with new and emerging digital sovereignty rules.

The massive move to cloud, the adoption of IT and operational technology virtualization, plus reliance upon extensive supply chain ecosystems are powerful drivers but can result in less positive outcomes, such as increased risk, complexity, and an expanded attack surface.
Why Attend?
At IDC, we know that the best way how to tackle complex problems is a combination of data that you can build your decisions on, and experience from the industry thought - leaders.

And that is what you can get at our IDC Security conference in Brussels the 27th of September 2023. Join us to gain access to the newest IDC research and connect with your peers.
