IDC IT Security Roadshow 2016

Rethinking Security for the Digital Enterprise

Amman, May 30, 2016


Rethinking Security for the Digital Enterprise

The enterprise landscape in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is undergoing a transformation. The changing nature of the customer and greater demands for agility are compelling organizations to become digital enterprises.

A digital enterprise looks at transformations based around operations, leadership, and processes. Companies undergoing this shift need to consider technologies such as mobile, social, cloud ,and Big Data as well as innovation accelerators such as cognitive technology, robotics, and 3D printing. A diverse digital ecosystem also brings security to the forefront as it underpins every operation, process and service within the organization. Organizations will not only have to consider security but also address issues such as trust and privacy.

Countries in the GCC region and around the world are evolving. Specifically, countries in the GCC are looking at initiatives based around becoming “smart,” which is bringing about a need for secure, open platform and assurances from governments that they are dealing with cybersecurity issues. However, budget constraints and concerns around skills add to transformational complexity. Organizations will need to address agility in terms of meeting customers needs and ensuring a seamless and secure.


Agility, the adoption of Internet of things (IoT), open platforms, and software-defined enterprises are the most widely discussed topics in the GCC. While an enterprise can achieve all of these aspects, the lack of a secure ecosystem can hinder an organization in its quest to evolve.

In 2016, IDC is looking at the business challenges that come with transforming into a “digital enterprise” as well  as the aspects that need to be considered by IT security decision makers to ensure that 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.
