10th IDC Security Roadshow: a Decade of Helping you Keep Pace with Cyberthreats

IT security is no longer an isolated area of IT endeavor – it is central to the decision-making processes required to confront new market realities. Many of the IT initiatives that are sweeping the region require new approaches to IT security. Virtualization, virtual offices, cloud computing – all are parts of changing company strategies that must be considered hand-in-hand with the security challenges they present.

"Many of the IT initiatives that are sweeping the region require new approaches to IT security. Virtualization, virtual offices, cloud computing – all are parts of changing company strategies that must be considered hand-in-hand with the security challenges they present. No longer is security an isolated area of IT endeavor, but it has become central to decision-making processes required to confront new market realities. As such, the relationship between security practitioners and business shareholders is strengthening," said Thomas Vavra.

The IDC IT Security Roadshow 2012 will focus on the most pressing security issues of modern organizations, including:

  • Security and Business Strategy
  • Enterprise Security Intelligence
  • Securing the Virtualized Data Center
  • Security and the Cloud
  • Network and Mobile Security
  • Data Governance


For 10 years, IDC's Security Roadshow has been addressing key issues and developments in the field of IT security, facilitating dialogue between users and vendors and bringing together experts from various domains to discuss new security technologies and approaches and how they fit into businesses strategies.
