IDC CISO Roundtable 2024

Evolving Threats, Advanced Defenses: Cybersecurity in the Next Era

Cairo, Egypt

Today’s organizations face challenges from multiple directions, including threats to the business from state-sponsored cyberattacks, geopolitical turmoil, inflation, and a shortage of security skills. For CISOs to succeed in this unprecedented security landscape, they must balance these threats with new approaches by performing continuous risk assessments, protecting digital assets, and managing the rapid pace of innovation in security technologies.

Whether it is the massive shift to cloud, the increasing automation of IT processes, or the flexibilization of the way employees work, CISOs are faced with more complex networks and an expanded attack surface, making their jobs even more difficult. However, new technology capabilities powered by AI/ML-enabled automation and better orchestration tools provide options to shore up resilience in the face of disruption. Put to their optimal use, they can protect critical business assets from breaches and attacks from cybercriminals, creating trust and ensuring compliance with new digital sovereignty rules. 

Why Attend?

The 2024 edition of the IDC Security Roadshow will explore the region's security landscape, showcase the latest in security innovation, and bring together some of the world’s foremost cybersecurity experts. Join us as we discuss a myriad of topics, trends, and issues at the forefront the CISO agenda and share essential guidance on how to keep up with — and stay ahead of — the rapid pace of change and digital acceleration.
