Safeguarding digital transformation

10th Annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Abu Dhabi
September 19th, 2018, Abu Dhabi, UAE

 
“CISOs need to understand the strategic objectives of their organisations and the importance of data based on their roles as custodians and key stakeholders within their organisation,”
Georges Demoura, Head of Group Information Security, Risk and Compliance – Technology & Innovation at Etihad Airways 
“To be successful in any organisation, the CISO should understand the organisation’s strategic business while securing the resources needed for their work,”
Abdulla Bader Al Sayari, Head of Information Security at the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi

 

Businesses need to change, and they need to change quickly. As Emirates Airline President Sir Tim Clark said recently: “Guys, there's a storm coming, and if you don't get on it and deal with it, you will perish,” Clark said in a recent interview with Business Insider. “The company of the 2050s will bear no resemblance to the company of 2018.”

Clark was talking about digital transformation – the process that tomorrow’s successful companies will manage well, and the one that may kill companies who do it badly.

But while going digital is business enhancing, it means moving moving online and into the Cloud, it means increased connectivity with customers and suppliers and so it means increased complexity and presenting a larger attack surface to cyber criminals. More and more corporate infrastructure is being exposed.

So how do companies evolve your business and remain competitive, while protecting sensitive data and retaining clients’ trust?

This event will look at the key cybersecurity issues that arise from a digital transformation strategy in the context of current global cybersecurity trends and the evolution of the latest threats.

It will look at the proactive defensive steps companies must take now if they are to protect their digital transformation processes.  It will address the continuing impact of compliance mandates such as GDPR and other legislation on organisations. 

And it will examine how innovation combined with strong cybersecurity is a strategic business opportunity to differentiate organisations and add tangible benefit to the bottom line and customer experience.

The 10th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Abu Dhabi will cover these and other key subjects for its audience of professionals tasked with safeguarding digital assets and sensitive data. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions from security teams behind some of the world’s most admired brands, who know, just like you, that security is now more important to business than ever before.

  • When state-actors are the main threat

    • Identifying and protecting critical assets
    • Ensuring plans are fit for real-world deployment
    • Containing, slowing and stopping a breach and managing post-incident fallout
    • Communicating with stakeholders and partners to respond smartly as events develop
    • Understanding the role that cyber insurance can play
  • Blockchain - hype versus reality

    Blockchain solutions create anonymity and immutability at the expense of efficiency and cost. So why do we need the zero trust underpinning of decentralised networks? 

    • Decoding the philosophy of blockchain
    • Do real world blockchain solutions to real problems exist and do they work?
    • If trust is the issue, how can you trust your suppliers' code?
    • Blockchain and cybersecurity - the latest developments
  • Rise of the robots?

    • From transaction to pattern: building new pictures of identity
    • Adaptive behavioural analytics
    • Self-learning and AI-based fraud detection and prevention
    • Reducing false decline rates 
  • Keeping up with the regulators

    • The latest insights and information on the GDPR and NIS
    • Ensuring that the organisation is compliant with all relevant national and international legal and governance requirements, including those which apply to outsourced third parties
    • Delivering cost-effective security solutions to ensure compliance with regulations and best-practice standards, such as PCI DSS, ISO 27001, and SOX
    • Ensuring compliance is not just 'tick a box' for the auditors but also reduces risk and improves security capabilities and business efficiency
  • Machine learning and AI

    • What can AI do and what are its limitations?
    • Where in the overall network and datasphere does AI make the most sense?
    • Cognitive security versus machine learning
  • Understanding the Cloud: the devil is in the detail

    • The benefits of security as a managed service, outsourced data management and outsourced endpoint security
    • What about the loss of control and visibility over IT?
    • What to look out for in Cloud contracts
    • Are sensitive data and and access to it the new perimeter?
