Protect the information of your business, customers, and citizens
Asian nations are each facing very different challenges and opportunities. Some are growing, despite political uncertainty, while others are undergoing new growth, fuelled by foreign investment. Common to organizations in these nations, is the need to develop and execute an effective security strategy to protect their investments.
IDC sees this region as being at an inflection point for security planning. Each of these nations has a unique mix of infrastructure for ICT, availability of skilled resources, and government influence on investments. Organizations need to recognize the challenges and threats unique to their environments, as well as being strategic in their investments to secure their most valuable information assets.
IDC Asia Pacific will be running a series of events around the key cities of Asia directed to CIOs and senior IT security professionals. Key areas to focus on in these markets, which will be highlights of the conference:
- building a security roadmap, including skills and process
- choosing a trusted managed security services provider
- protecting the data center and network from vulnerabilities and threats
- securing end user devices with mobile enterprise management
- establishing identity and access management
- digital forensics and other measures against espionage and attacks
The conference will also help organizations map their journey, identify potential gaps in their own security strategy and help provide a comprehensive blueprint and guidelines to combat future security threats to their organization.
Threat ecosystems are typically established by state-sponsored organizations, industrial espionage organizations, criminal syndicates, and hacktivists. Information about customers, industrial design, and individuals is the target of these attacks, and requires careful and comprehensive protection.
IDC's IT Security Conference 2014 will feature a compelling mix of insightful presentations, real-life case studies, and interactive panel discussions on global best practices, next-generation IT security trends, and the major challenges and opportunities posed by both. The aim of the conference’s is to bring vendors and ICT decision makers together by providing a unique opportunity to develop mindshare with an audience that is responsible for driving IT security investment in the region. IT leaders will be attending from across the whole vertical spectrum, including banking and finance, telecommunications, government, oil and gas, healthcare, manufacturing, and many more.
