IDC MEA Event Series

IDC IT Security Summit 2019
Delivering Pervasive Security for the Digital Era

Monday, March 18, 2019 - Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Digital transformation is becoming increasingly mainstream, with the majority of organizations in the region either planning or already starting their journey. To assist this process, they have started using innovative technologies such as cognitive systems, virtual and augmented reality, robotics, and the Internet of Things to streamline their operations and improve their customer experience. Running alongside 3rd Platform solutions like cloud, mobile, social, and big data, these new innovation-accelerating technologies are creating a complex ecosystem that is introducing a new series of IT security challenges.

As such, security incidents are becoming far more complex and persistent than ever before. Recent high-profile breaches showcase that a new breed of stealthy attackers are using vulnerabilities in systems and even the Internet of Things to bring down services. With digital transformation, security needs to become more pervasive; it needs to be embedded into the vision of the organization and treated as a core metric. Organizations can no longer settle for standard security solutions; they must move forward by embracing a proactive approach to the issues of defense, protection, mitigation, compliance, trust, and risk.

Against this backdrop, IDC’s Security Summit 2019 will equip you with expert insights into the security metrics, threat vectors, and solutions that you should keep in mind as you work to develop a sustainable security roadmap for your organization.

 

 

 

IDC CIO Summit Series 2019

Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - Tuesday, October 15, 2019

IDC IT Forum 2019
Future Innovation Accelerators

Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - Thursday, December 12, 2019

Multiplied innovation represents the next chapter of the digital transformation journey, and the new imperative is to keep pace with the unprecedented rate of business change while increasing the speed of business operations, the speed at which changes are delivered, and the speed and scale of innovation. The forces of multiplied innovation are powering up, and we are seeing an explosion in digital innovation platforms and ecosystems to facilitate this transformation.

Developing an effective digital transformation platform that can sustain, advance, and scale business operations may be the most important task facing the region’s decision makers over the next few years. Many future applications will be developed by AIs without human supervision, and beyond that, augmented humanity – the fusion of digital technologies and humans – for improved mobility, sensing, and cognition will start to become routine.

As a result, the future workplace will become far more collaborative. However, while new technologies are transforming key aspects of the modern business, legacy systems are holding others back, limiting innovation, opportunity, and engagement. Indeed, end-user organizations from every sector are now facing up to the challenge of having to balance traditional systems and next-generation technologies.
