The 2019 edition of the IDC Security Roadshow will span 10 countries across the Middle East and Africa (MEA).In today's constantly evolving world, it is critical to understand that technology is just one component of how we secure our organizations. Processes are important too, as are architecture, people, policies, and governance.With sensitive data sitting at the heart of what organizations are striving to protect, the conversation has inevitably shifted to information security. But once we frame the discussion in terms of digital assets and digital business, it's clear that what's really at stake is business security.
With an agenda designed to match the expectations of senior IT and security leaders, the IDC Security Roadshow will address all the biggest issues through a combination of keynote speeches, panel debates, and peer-to-peer networking. By attending our events, you will be able to:
Interact face to face with local and global IDC analysts
Gain a clearer understanding of current security challenges
Meet with industry peers and share common experiences
Learn about proven best practices through real-life case studies
Explore the key trends shaping security decisions across the region
Engage in interactive debates with respected thought leaders
The IDC Security Roadshow 2019 has been designed as an information-sharing forum and networking platform for select groups of 70–150 senior security decision makers from the most prominent enterprises in each country.
Every year, we conduct surveys and collect feedback from our audiences. As such, the agenda is guaranteed to reflect the most pressing global security challenges, while also addressing the current needs of the local market and providing ample scope for in-depth discussions and engaging conversations.
