With Dominic Trott, Research Manager, European Security, IDC
and Matt Payne, Regional Director, UKI (Akamai Web Division), Akamai
This IDC and Akamai Executive Dinner and Discussion, taking place at The Ritz, London, on the 15th March, will look into how you can amplify the potential of scarce in-house resources to optimise your operations. This dinner will be the perfect opportunity for you to network and benchmark with an intimate group of your peers whilst discussing your most pressing security issues over interactive roundtables.
Security threat actors, and the attacks that they launch, are continually evolving. Traditional in-house responses are no longer sufficient to deal with the sustained, large-scale and highly complex attacks that the dynamic threat landscape is capable of launching.The threat landscape benefits from its diverse nature, making attacks hard to identify and pin down. Meanwhile, threat actors are highly specialised and collaborative, sharing tools, techniques and intelligence that keeps them a step ahead of their targets. Yet enterprises remain constrained by their limitations, with constrained resources that operate within the confines of the enterprise perimeter.There is a growing realisation that new approaches are required in order to keep pace with the challenge. Yet concerns remain as to how, or even whether, third party services providers should be engaged in the provision of security. This event seeks to highlight the opportunities that exist to augment and focus in-house resources through partnerships with security services specialists.Allies are on-hand who possess scale, expertise and infrastructure beyond the corporate perimeter. These partners bring context and capability from the broader marketplace. Concerns persist that working with third parties erodes visibility and control over security operations. However, given the potential scale and complexity of sustained attacks, can enterprises afford to go-it-alone?
At this exclusive dinner you will learn from and share experiences with your peers around the following key questions:• The security skills shortage is much-reported, but is everyone feeling the pain? Are you making use of 3rd party support to address the short-fall? If not, what has influenced the decision?
• What skills and capabilities are in short supply? What approaches have you tried to fill the gaps? What risks do you perceive in the use of 3rd party support, and how can they be mitigated?
• How can 3rd party security specialists shift negative perceptions of their services: from a risk to be resisted, to an opportunity to be embraced?
