Leverage insights from respected industry leaders

Digital transformation (DX) will continue to dramatically reshape the global economy as the next phase of 3rd Platform technology rollouts hit full stride. If the first phase was about experimentation and siloed innovation, the next chapter will be characterized by multiplied innovation and autonomy as platform wars intensify and data is increasingly used for competitive advantage.
Beyond 2022, we will see large-scale automation with ubiquitous AI and robotics, the emergence of digital twins on a massive scale, and exponential change in the competitive landscape. A new "IT world order" is on the horizon, built around changing technologies, new offerings, evolving business models, and emerging DX use cases. New IT industry power positions are coming to the fore and ICT vendor leadership ranks are being disrupted.
Against this backdrop, CIOs and other CxOs will need to constantly calibrate and chart their own course of digital innovation, breaking the digital deadlock by developing new digital capabilities, performance metrics, and organization structures. Join us at the IDC Saudi Arabia CIO Summit 2019 to learn more.
The IDC CIO Summit Series 2019 will provide essential guidance on:

Attivo Networks® is the leader in deception for cyber security defense. Founded in 2011, Attivo Networks provides a comprehensive deception platform that in real-time detects inside-the-network intrusions in networks, public and private data centers, and specialized environments such as Industrial Control System (ICS) SCADA, Internet of Things (IoT), and Point of Sale (POS) environments. Founded on the premise that even the best security systems cannot prevent all attacks, Attivo provides the required visibility and actionable, substantiated alerts to detect, isolate, and defend against cyber attacks. Unlike prevention systems, Attivo assumes the attacker is inside the network and uses high-interaction decoys and endpoint, server, and application deception lures placed ubiquitously across the network to deceive threat actors into revealing themselves. With no dependencies on signatures or attack pattern matching, the BOTsink deception server is designed to accurately and efficiently detect the reconnaissance and lateral movement of advanced threats, stolen credential, ransomware, man-in-the-middle, and phishing attacks. The Attivo Multi-Correlation Detection Engine (MCDE) captures and analyzes attacker IPs, methods, and actions that can then be viewed in the Attivo Threat Intelligence Dashboard, exported for forensic reporting in IOC, PCAP, STIX, CSV formats or can be used to automatically update SIEM and prevention systems for blocking, isolation, and threat hunting. The ThreatOps offering simplifies incident response through information sharing, incident response automation, and the creation of repeatable playbooks.
