IDC IT Security Summit 2018

Delivering Pervasive Security for the Digital Era

Johannesburg, August 21, 2018

Overview

“Digital” has, in the recent past, heralded a metamorphosis in the way organizations in South Africa  approach and transact their business. Leaders envisage a new world order triggered by a transformation in Business Models, Customer Experience, Worksource and Information Management.

With a subsequent rapid rise in “Digital”, the threat landscape for organizations also stands to undergo enhanced levels of complexity and diversity in the coming years. Already, we have been witness to large scale Cyber Security incidents (WannaCry) that have shook the foundations of the existing security postures of organizations both in South Africa and globally. In such a scenario, it will become all the more imperative for organizations to build appropriate levers for security in their business strategy.

IDC Security Roadshow 2018 will examine the current security landscape and explore the challenges that organizations are likely to encounter as they embark on their digital transformation efforts. It will also explore the issues that organizations will need to address in the digitally transformed era and outline what factors they need to consider in their security road maps for the future.

Security as an Enabler to Digital Transformation

Matthew Gyde
Group Executive –Security

How do we regain the insight in our environments? We have lost much insight in how our IT operations and security is operated and more importantly how it is performing. With the relentless move to cloud platforms, being a private or public one, or perhaps even a hybrid, we stand to lose even more visibility and control in our day 2 day and strategic operations. What do enterprises need to do to regain control? In this presentation we aim to help you see a path forward, and roads into the near and distant future of your IT infra and asset management.
