IDC IT Security Roadshow 2017 | Events | IDC CEMA

Do you think security is about scare tactics?

It isn’t. These days, it isn’t even about fear or doubts. It is about the desire to learn more, to be ahead of the game, to know when to embrace new technologies and when to discard old ones.

Our mission is to provoke thoughtful exchange through a holistic approach to information security and what it means for organizations today. We want to change the view of security from a cost center and a “police entity” to an integral element of business initiative. We believe it’s time to shift the paradigm of security from the preserve of IT to a key component of company culture.

All forward-thinking leaders welcome

IDC’s Security Summit is a must-attend event that brings together IT Security professionals from the top Middle Eastern organizations, thought-leading IDC analysts, industry gurus, and vendors of cutting-edge security solutions for networking, learning, and experience exchange.

Come speak, share, and challenge ideas with other IT Security professionals like you. All in the interest of improving security and furthering the culture that surrounds it.
