IDC Security Roadshow Elevating the Security of the Future Enterprise

In-Person Event | Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche | June 22, 2022

Overview

Today’s security leaders are examining cybersecurity through a strategic-, business-, and industry-focused lens. Efficient and effective security across the entire enterprise is a necessity at a time when networks are evaporating, endpoints are proliferating, and relentless adversaries are continually adapting their tactics, techniques, and procedures. Organizations across the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region are increasingly looking to enable comprehensive threat detection and response, all while elevating their level of cybersecurity maturity. Per a recent IDC survey of CIOs from across the region, 45% of respondents revealed that security is now embedded into the planning, initiation, and assessment phases of all new business initiatives. Against a backdrop of ever-increasing security complexity, this event will explore why visibility and control over application security is now vital for organizational survival. 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

Ranjit Rajan

Vice President, Research (META), IDC

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.
