As the number and sophistication of data breaches and cyber-attacks increases, so too does the demand to prevent such incursions. Building resilience and developing contingency plans to tackle attacks is a key focus for organisations as regulatory pressures increase and the imperative to protect vital customer data, intellectual property, trade secrets and business strategies – and, ultimately, market value – hang in the balance.
The global enterprise security market is set to be worth $86bn this year and security spending is set to continue increasing as most organisations continue to lack the skills needed to define and implement appropriate levels of security controls. Organisations will be keen to enhance their security posture with the proliferation of disruptive technologies like big data and mobile to ensure that they continue to raise the security bar higher to prevent and detect newly emergent attacks and persistent penetration strategies.
Security practitioners are ever-pressed to understand the deficiencies in current practices, keep pace with emerging trends and design and implement effective responses to the evolving threat horizon. Join hundreds of leading Infosec, cyber security and risk management professionals at Whitehall Media’s prestigious bi-annual 6th ESRM conference to discuss the latest developments and identify how best to address the most pressing security risks of tomorrow. The event will offer unrivalled networking opportunities and insights on how to design, implement and embed deliverable action plans that balance risk mitigation with the pursuit of business growth.
