IDC & Cisco Webinar

The role of IT security has evolved substantially in recent years. Gone are the days when IT security was only considered a necessary cost, draining the IT resources, and hampering innovation. Instead, recent IDC data shows that in two thirds of Nordic organisations, the management perceive IT security as a positive contributor to the business by enabling business efficiency improvements or driving competitive differentiation, but how can you as an IT leader drive this change and keep up with the ever-changing IT security landscape?

Webinar speakers:

    • Anders Elbak, Associate Director from IDC will present the latest research on IT security trends and concerns among Nordic companies and explain how IT security is the foundation for digital trust, which in turn is paramount for a successful business.
    • Martin Lee, Technical Lead from Talos will give insight into the latest trends in how cyber criminals work, and how they escalate the cost of a breach, but also discuss how we “the good guys” can put pressure on the criminals.
    • Rasmus Rasmussen, VP - Enterprise Platforms, Infrastructure & Security from Demant will walk us through what actually happens when a massive security incident takes place, and how to lift the IT security agenda across the company.
    • Runar Myhre, CIO and Øyvind Hirsch, Head of Digital Platforms from Bertel O. Steen will guide us through how the digitalisation of their industry compelled Bertel O. Steen to embark on an IT security journey that has evolved to include many more aspects of the business than initially thought of.
