Why Modern Enterprises Are Choosing To Focus On Data Security

Presented by

Hamed Shahbar (VP, Head of IT Network and Security), Public Investment Fund (PIF)

About this talk

Many enterprises are spending considerable time and money on traditional perimeter-centric security, like securing infrastructure (devices and networks), but with the average cost of a breach in the United States being $9.05M US and $6.93M US in the Middle East, the time the time to look beyond traditional perimeter centric security is now. Modern enterprises are choosing to shift their security investment to focus on data security, classification and the prevention of data leakage. Join this session to hear how one of the largest sovereign wealth funds in the world shifted away from traditional security approaches and secured their data. Key takeaways will include: ● How to assess & understand the impact of data being exposed ● How to get end-users invested in the move to data classification and rights management ● How to adjust to rapidly-changing government regulations
