Saudi Arabia CISO Roundtable

Preparing for a New Era of Cyberthreats

In Saudi Arabia, security professionals from both the public and private sectors face incredible challenges, with their organizations demanding best-in-class security, agility, and speed that balances enterprise-related risks and benefits. Indeed, today's security leaders must play a multidimensional role that extends beyond maintaining security to encompass evolving business and digital concerns, embracing an ROI-driven approach, and leveraging automation to exceed the sophistication levels of bad actors.


IDC's latest research shows that cybersecurity metrics are now the number-one KPIs for measuring the performance of IT teams in the Saudi Arabia, and that annual spending on cybersecurity across the region will top SAR 3 billion by end of 2023.


The 2023 edition of the IDC CISO Roundtable in Saudi Arabia will explore the current state of the cybersecurity market in the Kingdom and across the wider Middle East. IDC analysts and a host of regional and global security experts will explore the challenges facing CISOs today and highlight the strategies that can be leveraged to instill reliable security practices into corporate cultures. They will also explain how the near-universal adoption of remote and hybrid work practices has impacted the role of the modern CISO as the organizational attack surface continues to expand.
