A charismatic and engaging keynote speaker, Alexis employs his knowledge of the dark and deceptive world of hustling, pickpockets and con-artists to speak candidly on the risks and security threats constantly faced by businesses, and to deliver important messages on the shrewdest ways to protect against the ever-increasing number of scams.
Organisations are in the midst of a strategic realignment of their information technology programs. This change is led by factors that were accelerated during the COVID-19 global pandemic including:
* Growing awareness of the large impact of malicious cyber events
* Rapid acceleration of public cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) adoption
* Expanded implementation of microservices-based development models
* Embracing automation and consolidation to drive-down operational costs
* Increase in reliable high bandwidth commodity broadband
* Productivity benefits associated with work-from-home
Given the trends, we will show you how IT leaders are adopting transformation programs including:
* Automated intelligence-based threat prevention across network, cloud, endpoint, and mobile to prevent advanced attacks
* Cloud-first IT built on agile development
* Data center consolidation and modernization
* Edge-delivered security for users
