With the extraordinary speed of IT evolution and digital transformation, organisations have been able to develop many new and exciting business opportunities. Unfortunately cyber criminals have also found new ways to exploit these new business opportunities. It may seem obvious that building cyber security into the fabric of our enterprise systems is a logical approach, which it is ,but how? In this session IBM will discuss how to address challenges such as new regulations, scarcity of resources, correct solution selection and how to progress faster than the speed of threat. If you are starting out on your cyber journey or at a mature level , this session will help you focus on what you should be considering as your next steps. This session is equally of value to OT, IT and compliance professionals from the technical or business parts of an organization.
