Zero Trust: A strategic approach to cybersecurity for Abu Dhabi CISOs
An Intelligent CISO event, sponsored by IBM Security.

Monday 27th September 11am (GST)

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. In this webinar, you’ll 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 strategic approach for increasing cyber-resilience.
