IDC Keynote : Elevating Security for Digital Trust & Risk Management

The changing face of technology, brought about by digital transformation (DX) and the leaps in how business is done, necessitates a shift in the perception of enterprise-wide IT security. If the past decade has shown us anything, it's that no organization is immune to cyberattacks. The proliferation of handheld devices, cloud-based platforms, and remote access points has significantly increased the vulnerability of organizations to such attacks. Indeed, experience has proven that enacting a radical shift in an organization’s approach to cybersecurity is the only way to evolve at speed to preempt these risks. Deploying emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning, IoT, and big data analytics for an advanced behavioral analytics framework that is both proactive and predictive.
