IDC Security Summit 2018 | Events | IDC CEMA

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 2018 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.
