Injazat Data Systems will take part in Frost & Sullivan’s Middle East Enterprise Security Summit 2012 as Platinum Partner, with Injazat’s Head of Information Security Kamran Ahsan to discuss reasons for enterprise security to be adaptive as business models are transforming, technologies are evolving and threats are approaching new heights of advancement and sophistication. Titled “Information Security Management – when the going gets tough!” the presentation highlights a proactive strategy of security management that anticipates and mitigates risks associated with business assets and services.
The Summit, which will be held at the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort in Dubai on November 21, 2012, seeks to complement ongoing reforms in information security in the Middle East, particularly in the UAE where several measures are being undertaken to enhance information security, both at the government and corporate levels.
“Information security is increasingly becoming a main concern in today’s modern business environment. This trend is very much evident in the Middle East, where enterprises have experienced information-related threats such as infiltration, data leakage and cyber warfare among others. Injazat Data Systems will highlight how enterprises can proactively address these challenges and mitigate risks associated with business assets and services of enterprises. Moreover, with the best minds in enterprise security attending this event, we expect to have an in-depth discussion of the new trends and developments in information security in the Middle East,” said Ibrahim Lari, CEO, Injazat Data Systems.
Andy Baul Lewis, Director, Information and Communication Technologies Practice, Middle East and North Africa, Frost & Sullivan states, “The changing Enterprise landscape and paradigm shift in communications to collaborative technologies, coupled with increased Internet penetration and information sharing, network threats are making organizations review their security policies. Also, with the Government spending on IT, the Middle East Network Security market is expected to grow over the next five years, thereby opening up huge opportunities for vendors to identify and tap.”
The key areas of discussion at the Summit would include Information Security Management, Evolving Role of the CIOs, Protecting IT Infrastructure from Future Threats, Efficient and Effective ways to protect Data and Applications, Ways to Manage Security Gaps in an Enterprise and Bridging the gap between Security and Operational Efficiency.
This summit aims to convene the best minds in Enterprise Security under one roof to create an interactive milieu for exchange of knowledge and ideas.
