Building The New Security Roadmap

Megha Kumar
Research Director, Software, Middle East & Africa

Organizations are striving to execute digital transformation processes and bring innovation to the forefront. Organizations are further aiming to transform their processes, operations, and leadership to become digital enterprises. Specifically, companies are investing in 3rd Platform technologies and innovation accelerators to meet their targets within given timelines. However, organizations have to deal with the rapidly changing demands of their customers as well as a threat landscape that is getting increasingly complex. Organizations also have to contend with new vulnerabilities and technologies, meet customer demand for a seamless experience, and increasingly address issues relating to risk and trust.

The following keynote presentation will look at the trends impacting the security landscape in the region. It will also explore the issues that organizations will need to address in the digitally transformed era and outline what factors they need to consider in their security road maps for the future.
