12:45 PM Rethinking Data Security in the era of Digitalization

As digital and analytics capabilities become more pervasive, organizations need to rethink their data management strategies while transforming their data for the last line of defense against cyber attacks.

Business resilience is a key enabler to drive a data-driven culture. Thinking beyond infrastructure security ensures critical data is protected and governed in compliance with regulations.
