Enterprise Security and Risk Management: Mapping and Prioritising the Security and Risk Landscape

With the advent of cloud and mobile ways of working, safeguarding corporate data and access point risk management in large organisations has become vital to business success.

Users are increasingly embracing the power of accessing corporate data from anywhere, at any time. The rapid trends in BYOD and cloud adoption have provided cyber criminals and malicious code with new vectors of attack.

Risk management is becoming key to working with new vendors

Companies today are hard-pressed to assess the risks of their cloud providers in much the same way as they would if they were holding their data internally. Information in public cloud can represent a single point of failure, with catastrophic associated reputational and revenue damage.

Securing the supply chain is becoming a key concern for many enterprises, especially as sensitive information exchanged between organisations comes under attack. Sensitive data can take many forms: for retailers, it may be the details of their consumers, for manufacturers, it could be their patents, while for banks and financial services, it could be customer asset data.

Evolving threats in enterprise can be handled

Whitehall Media’s Enterprise Security and Risk Management conference, to be held on 25 March, 2014, will charter the ways in which senior IT managers in all major sectors can assess, monitor and proactively respond to evolving threats facing the enterprise.

According to Symantec, web-based attacks have increased 30 percent over the last year. The risks are equally pressing for SMEs. According to a recent study carried out by the Ponemon Institute, 58 percent of SMEs said their management board did not deem cyber-attacks as representing a significant risk to their business.

Our essential one-day conference will help delegates explore how they can concentrate their resources on monitoring the latest security threats, establish a mobile and BYOD policy that is secure, put in place business continuity, risk management and contingency plans and bolster their smart defences to better protect their enterprise and employees.

The day will feature presentations from leading industry brains from a breadth of organisations, including the Bank of England, King.com, Glaxosmithkline, Centrica, TNT Express, Thomson Reuters and Monster Jobs among others.
