Frost & Sullivan to host security summit in Dubai
Summit will address current challenges to the enterprise security landscape
Frost & Sullivan will be hosting the Middle East Enterprise Security Summit 2012 on 21st November, at Habtoor Grand Beach Resort in Dubai. This summit aims to convene the best minds in enterprise security under one roof for exchange of knowledge and ideas. At the summit, Frost & Sullivan will address topics such as cloud and BYOD and the risks these emerging and continuing trends pose to enterprise security, as well as brainstorm on the innovative best practices in the increasingly competitive enterprise security sector to combat the increasing risk of security breaches and data leakage, cyber warfare, data centre security, and more in the Middle East. "The changing Enterprise landscape and paradigm shift in communications to collaborative technologies, coupled with increased Internet penetration and information sharing, network threats are making organisations review their security policies. Also, with the Government spending on IT, the Middle East Network Security market is expected to grow over the next five years, thereby opening up huge opportunities for vendors to identify and tap," said Andy Baul Lewis, director, Information and Communication Technologies Practice, Middle East and North Africa, Frost & Sullivan. The key areas of discussion at the Summit would include information security management, evolving role of the CIOs, protecting IT infrastructure from future threats, efficient and effective ways to protect data and applications, ways to manage security gaps in an enterprise and bridging the gap between security and operational efficiency. The Summit is supported by Injazat Data Systems as the Platinum Partner.
