Elevating Security for Digital Trust & Risk Management

Varun Kukreja
Senior Program Manager, Senior Program Manager - IT Security MEA, IDC Middle East, Africa, & Turkey

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.

Managing the Growing Complexity of Regulatory Compliance

As regulatory oversight increases globally, the pressure on organizations to improve compliance and governance is rising. Security is an integral part of many regulations, and with regulatory bodies setting strict guidelines that preserve information integrity on a national level, security teams must now sharpen their focus on ensuring compliance. With the wider proliferation of digital transformation, the regulatory environment can be expected to increase in complexity. While security strategies need to account for greater management of compliance, they also need to go further.
