                                    We are all living in a connected world which is affecting every aspect of our lives. In the past couple of years, we have been discussing implications of a technology and digital-driven world (i.e.) cloud, mobile, advanced threats. Today, we are seeing some of our worst predictions shaping into real life. So why are businesses not protecting themselves and instead keep making excuses? In today’s world, business need security that meet their business needs. Pierre Paul Allard's discussion defines the pillars of security that businesses should adopt, based on their actual business needs.

                                    Pierre Paul Allard

                                    We are in an extraordinary time in human history. Thanks to innovative and disruptive technologies we live longer, healthier and more educated than ever before. While technologies such as cloud computing, mobile and Internet of Things open up new opportunities, they are, in many cases, the biggest barriers for adoption due to cyber security concerns. How do you innovate, inspire and compete while remaining secure? In his inspiring session, Nathan Schuchami shares the Check Point vision on how organizations can keep focus on innovating while being secured with a security architecture that is one step ahead.

                                    Nathan Schuchami

The discussion will provide real world examples of what works and what does not work and provides a framework on how to center your organizations security strategy to face any incident head on.

                                    What would you do if you had the ability to see 40% of the world’s Internet traffic? As part of the NTT Group, we are using this information to create a machine learning predictive threat platform that could be used to provide real-time and contexualised threat information to our clients – we call it the Global Threat Intelligence Platform. Join us in this session as Matthew Gyde, Dimension Data’s Group Executive – Security, offers insights in to the capabilities of the Global Threat Intelligence Platform and how it might be used within your organisation. Matthew will also explore the recently released 2017 NTT Global Threat Intelligence Report (GTIR). The report provides visibility into current and evolving threats and trends in the context of the geo-political and cyber threat climate, including actionable insights and expert strategic recommendations businesses can take to enhance their security posture. The GTIR is compiled from data collected by NTT Security and other NTT operating companies including Dimension Data, from the networks of 10,000 clients across five continents, 3.5 trillion security logs, 6.2 billion attempted attacks, and global honeypots and sandboxes located in over 100 different countries.
