Today’s security leaders are examining cybersecurity through a strategic-, business-, and industry-focused lens. Efficient and effective security across the entire enterprise is a necessity at a time when networks are evaporating, endpoints are proliferating, and relentless adversaries are continually adapting their tactics, techniques, and procedures.

Organizations across the South Africa region are increasingly looking to enable comprehensive threat detection and response, all while elevating their level of cybersecurity maturity. Per a recent IDC survey of CIOs from across the region, 45% of respondents revealed that security is now embedded into the planning, initiation, and assessment phases of all new business initiatives.

Against a backdrop of ever-increasing security complexity, this event will explore why visibility and control over application security is now vital for organizational survival. Industry experts will explore transformative technologies, dissect the ever-growing threat landscape, and examine the increasingly sophisticated nature of cyberattacks, all while discussing other real challenges to the security of the future enterprise.

This summit 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.
