Rethinking Security for the Digital Enterprise

Lagos, April 12, 2016


Rethinking Security for the Digital Enterprise
Africa is a continent that has been leveraging various 3rd Platform aspects for innovation. Organizations have been innovating using mobile, social, cloud, and analytics, and have further been adapting themselves to an ecosystem that is currently undergoing a transformation. As companies in Africa move into the digital era, security will become a necessary component in ensuring resilience. Organizations and IT decision makers are going to have to consider aspects such as compliance and governance while ensuring that employees understand security policies and strategies. In a complex ecosystem, companies will need to consider their risk posture and ascertain the level of intrusion they are ready to sustain.
IDC is going to look the organizational challenges that will come with the transformation into a “digital enterprise,” and will identify the aspects that need to be considered by IT security decision makers to ensure they are able to build secure, digital enterprises. Join us and hear from security experts and thought leaders on how to manage the ever-evolving complex threat and enterprise ecosystem.
