Ready For Anything: Build a Cyber Resilient Organization

Keynotes

In an age of exponentially more data, connected devices and computing power, there are more ways for attackers to breach an organization than ever before. Teams are challenged to manage these threats as they deal with too many disparate tools from too many vendors, an enormous security and IT skills shortage, and a growing number of compliance mandates.

In the struggle to keep up, organizations are not doing a good job of mastering the security fundamentals. We believe that with the right approach, technologies and experts, we can fight back. Hear from clients and IBM leaders how we deliver security and resiliency at the scale and speed necessary to protect businesses against the challenges of today, and tomorrow.
