IDG Security Day


Date: 21st June 2017

Defining Risk in 2017

What is top of mind in information security and other areas of risk in 2017? How has the landscape changed in the past year, and what factors on the horizon are likely to change through the end of the decade?

As enterprises forge deeper into the digital realm, managing risk and security become ever more important for senior information technology and security executives. And in today’s global, multi-cloud, multi-generational workplace, there’s risk in every corner – and the board wants to know what you are doing about it.

Do you have the right mix of defenses? Are you spending the right amount on compliance vs. third-party concerns vs. employee awareness training?
