IDC Security Roadshow

Preparing for a New Era of Cyberthreats


Security-focused technologies have come a long way thanks to massive technological leaps and the adoption of a digital-first approach to business. Over the coming few years, the pace of rapid change and digital acceleration is expected to gain even more momentum. Today, IT security professionals face numerous challenges such as the need to protect a distributed workforce, an internet that is faster than ever before (5G), interconnectivity that is increasing in complexity, and customers looking for immersive experiences and greater security for their data with stricter government regulations in place.

In the face of this volatile and shifting threat landscape, organizations across Saudi Arabia are diligently working to strengthen their security postures and support innovation. They are investing more and more in security services to meet the challenges that come with limited numbers of security specialists, higher numbers of remote workers, changing compliance and regulatory requirements, new hybrid environments, accelerating cloud investments, and the complexities of next-generation technologies.

The 2023 edition of the IDC Security Roadshow will explore Saudi's security landscape, showcase the very latest in security innovation, and bring together some of the world's foremost cybersecurity experts.
