Region EMEA

As the region continues to find its footing in the aftermath of COVID-19, cybersecurity has taken center stage. Threats have increased considerably as bad actors exploit the vulnerabilities presented as an unintended outcome of the pandemic. Since early 2020, cybersecurity professionals have become even more instrumental in driving organizational strategy, taking on leadership roles, and securing digital transformation initiatives.

The IDC Security Roadshow, South Africa is one of the year’s most eagerly awaited events & is the platform of choice for security professionals as they battle to keep pace with a threat landscape that’s evolving at a never-before-seen rate. The 2021 edition will bring together the region’s pre-eminent technology experts, providers, analysts, and speakers for a fully immersive experience.

Join us for a detailed look into the post-COVID-19 security market and the biggest challenges facing the region’s governments and businesses. We will explore innovative, up-to-the-minute use cases and outline the key focus areas for organizations looking to minimize their cyber-risk exposure.

Key Topics:
• Security Operational Excellence
Enterprises need to build "security by design" into company culture and outsource to fill any gaps around scale and capability.

• Risk Management
A risk-driven security strategy will have greater impact and justify security investment.

• Security Governance
Setting a governance model that links business objectives and security goals is key to sustaining enterprise performance.

• Digital Trust
Trust is the outcome of full alignment between security and business throughout the organization, enhancing governance, transactions, and supply ecosystems.

• Building Resilience
A resilient infrastructure is crucial for maintaining operations despite attacks or outages, thus minimizing risk and losses.

• AI, ML, and Security Automation
Harnessing ML and AI for security automation empowers analysts to build security seamlessly into business processes.
