About Defending Your Data in a Remote Working World DigiConnect

It’s one of the oldest maxims in cybersecurity – you can’t protect what you can’t see. With organizations shifting to remote work and the traditional enterprise network going dark in many ways, new way of thinking is essential to protect crucial data in your organization. Data doesn’t disappear on its own, a compromised account, malicious insider or simply a negligent user is almost always the cause.

This executive virtual boardroom will gather senior executives from IT, risk and compliance, business continuity and cybersecurity from leading enterprises in the Middle East to discuss critical topic areas on how to protect data in the digital era including:

  • The channels and techniques that attackers have adapted to increase their success rate
  • Why digital transformation is making attackers jobs easier and increasing organization risk
  • How to fundamentally change the way you look at your defenses to better protect your organization
