Why IBM ZeroTrust Security Forum?

Adopt Zero Trust to proactively mitigate risk and curb soaring losses

The latest global and local research shows that the costs and impacts of data breaches are soaring globally. The costs of detection and escalation, notifications and lost business are all on an upward trend, with factors such a remote workforces, cloud migration and security skills shortage amplifying these losses.

IBM, in collaboration with ITWeb, invites you to this briefing for a full analysis of the latest global and local research into the costs of data loss, factors impacting the losses, and the industries suffering the greatest losses.

You will also learn how security is shifting from a cost centre to a value driver, with Zero Trust maturity helping organisations become more cyber resilient and measurably reducing the losses suffered in the event of a data breach.

Discover IBM’s approaches and building blocks for Zero Trust to transform your security posture in an increasingly complex and challenging environment.
