Business Security: Risk & Resilience

Qatar, Doha
March 20, 2019

What's It About?

It is insufficient to talk only about IT security. Technology is just one component of how we secure our organizations. Processes are important too, as are architecture, people, policies, and governance. At the heart of what organizations need to protect are data and information, the digital assets that confer value on digital businesses. Which means IT security is now about nothing less than Business Security. It’s time for everyone to recognize that the two are inseparable.


Key Topics

Together with industry analysts, CISO delegates will address key challenges and explore issues around IT and cybersecurity such as:

How is digital transformation altering business and security?

How to harness AI, automation, and orchestration?

What cyberthreats are on the rise?

What is the impact of expanded technology reach?

Platform disruption — security innovation at scale

Risk – from insider threat to the NIS Directive
