With breaches in data making headlines all over the world, information security is at the top of every CIOs agenda. As it becomes apparent that no one, not even large-scale enterprises or governments themselves, are immune to attacks by ill-intentioned hackers, IT departments are obliged to revamp and revaluate their security systems to ensure that data remains secure.
As hackers organise and form unified groups to bring down websites and cause even more serious damage by mining and stealing sensitive data such as log-in credentials and financial information, IT decision makers need to stay abreast of the latest in security technology.
In addition to heightened threats from the hacking world, so too has the way we store our data changed. As the Middle East market begins a gradual ascent into the cloud, concerns for the security of data stored therein are becoming apparent. Security data when as it is stored in virtualised space presents a host of issues that need to be addressed and taken seriously by CIOs and IT departments.
Security Strategist 2014 is a platform that will bring together the IT industry and security experts to explore best practices and new security technologies. It will feature presentations from leaders in the field to educate on how to combat new and persistent threats, and the opportunity to discuss the risks that enterprises are facing as hackers and technology progress.
