IDC IT Security Summit 2018

Delivering Pervasive Security for the Digital Era

Manama City 22.3.2018

Overview

Digital transformation is becoming increasingly mainstream, with the majority of organizations in the region either planning or already starting their journey. To assist this process, they have started using innovative technologies such as cognitive systems, virtual and augmented reality, robotics, and the Internet of Things to streamline their operations and improve their customer experience. Running alongside 3rd Platform solutions like cloud, mobile, social, and big data, these new innovation-accelerating technologies are creating a complex ecosystem that is introducing a new series of IT security challenges.

As such, security incidents are becoming far more complex and persistent than ever before. Recent high-profile breaches showcase that a new breed of stealthy attackers are using vulnerabilities in systems and even the Internet of Things to bring down services. With digital transformation, security needs to become more pervasive; it needs to be embedded into the vision of the organization and treated as a core metric. Organizations can no longer settle for standard security solutions; they must move forward by embracing a proactive approach to the issues of defense, protection, mitigation, compliance, trust, and risk.

Against this backdrop, IDC’s Security Summit 2018 will equip you with expert insights into the security metrics, threat vectors, and solutions that you should keep in mind as you work to develop a sustainable security roadmap for your organization.

Implementing Dynamic Security for the Digital Era

Building You Cloud Security Strategy

Not too long ago, the core of the traditional data centers was on premises servers running all manner of apps. With the maturing of virtualization technology and the need to standardize infrastructure and be more agile/flexible, private clouds are widely adopted by customers. Almost as rapidly as private cloud adoption occurred, organizations are moving workloads to public cloud environments such as amazon or azure.

In this keynote, Waseem Halim will look at the trends of both private and public cloud adoption impacting the security landscape and how Palo Alto Networks platform help in securing such deployments.

 

10:30

Cyber Security as an Enabler of Digitization

From an analytical perspective, cybersecurity has long been considered as a tool that protects digitization. However, cybersecurity today is fostering growth in many industries. This session will thus take a look at how cybersecurity helps develop newer, more reliable industries through innovation.

Security as an Enabler to Digital Transformation

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 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 ? How have Qualys customers taken on this challenge?

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.
