Reimagining Security and Digital Trust for the 'Digital-First' Organization

Organizations across the region are increasingly embracing a “digital-first” approach and accelerating their digital initiatives as they bid to remain resilient and navigate the uncertainties of the pandemic-induced crisis. Increasing demand from customers for digital and contactless services — as well as the rapid shift to cloud-based environments, the proliferation of remote and distributed work models, and the acceleration of digital innovation supported by emerging technologies and app development — have together caused a huge expansion of the attack surface, with perimeters becoming more fluid and dynamic than ever before. At the same time, the threat landscape has increased in sophistication, bringing new and unprecedented threats to the fore.

According to IDC, overall annual cybersecurity spending in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa will top $4 billion by 2023 as it increases at a CAGR of 7.2% over the 2020-25 period. Today, digital trust — which incorporates not only cybersecurity but also privacy, risk, and ethics — is emerging as a key priority for digital-first organizations and consumers, business leaders, and technology suppliers, who must expand their understanding of trust and its importance if they are to success in the new digital economy.

The GCC edition of the IDC Security Roadshow 2021 will explore the latest developments in the region's security market, take an in-depth look at some of today’s hottest security-related topics, address the challenges organizations are facing in a rapidly changing threat landscape, and provide expert strategic guidance for the security professionals in attendance.
