IDC IT Security Summit 2018

Delivering Pervasive Security for the Digital Era

Muscat 29.3.2018

Overview

“Digital” has, in the recent past, heralded a metamorphosis in the way organizations in Middle East  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 Middle East 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.

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.

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.
