There is no doubt that the role of the CISO is more high-pressured than ever before, given the rapid shift to remote working caused by COVID-19, the highly sophisticated attacks being leveraged by modern attackers and the pressure created by the skills shortage.
CISOs across all major industries in Abu Dhabi require strategic approaches to reduce their cyber-risk and increase their cyber-resilience as organisations continue on their Digital Transformation journeys.
And with recent research from IBM revealing that the Middle East was second only to the US as the highest region for average total cost of a data breach, the time to act is now.
IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach Report 2021 also highlighted that the average total cost of a data breach in the region increased from US$6.52m to US$6.93m year-on-year.
The challenges being faced by modern CISOs will be discussed this month in an online conference targeting security leaders in Abu Dhabi, hosted by Intelligent CISO and sponsored by IBM Security.
In the webinar, attendees will hear about the impact of data breaches on organisations across the region, while speakers from IBM Security will highlight how Zero Trust can be used as a future-proof strategic approach for increasing cyber-resilience, with practical insights on how to leverage Zero Trust technology.
