IDC Security Roadshow Elevating the Security of the Future Enterprise

In-Person Event | Grand Hyatt Doha Hotels and Villas | June 6, 2022

Overview

Cyberattacks on critical infrastructure, governments, and sensitive data are increasing in volume and intensity. Cybersecurity has certainly expanded beyond technology and is now about a holistic process that includes business decisions, human beings, emerging technologies, and increasingly sophisticated adversaries.As networks evaporate and endpoints proliferate, relentless adversaries are continually adapting their attack vectors. In response, the need to ensure efficient and effective security across the entire enterprise has grown rapidly.

Enabling comprehensive threat detection and response mechanisms and improving cybersecurity maturity have become key priorities for organizations in Qatar. According to a recent IDC survey, 42% of Qatari organizations have already invested in threat intelligence services, while another 39% have already invested in threat detection and response solutions.

This event will explain why enabling visibility and control across your technology footprint is now vital. Industry experts will explore transformative technologies, dissect the ever-growing threat landscape, and examine the increasingly sophisticated nature of cyberattacks, all while discussing other real challenges to the security of the future enterprise.

IDC Keynote: Elevating the Security of the Future Enterprise

Shilpi Handa

Associate Research Director

Digital transformation has become a major disruptor of how companies operate today, and its importance is only growing with time. As companies increasingly turn toward technology to drive and innovate their business models, they become more vulnerable to cyberattacks from hackers and other malicious actors who are now innovating their attack vectors in parallel. Recent research has revealed that developing security and resilience excellence — through establishing security operations and enhancing security skills and processes — is the biggest strategic investment planned by 58% of CIOs and CISOs over the coming two years. While striving for greater efficiency, agility, and speed is a major priority, the lack of skills needed to navigate the constantly evolving cybersecurity landscape presents its challenges, and finding the right balance sets apart successful and well thought out cybersecurity strategies.
