Enabling a user-centric approach to cyber security

Think Tank - 12:20 pm - 12:45 pm

The increased focus on digital transformation, coupled with the rapid evolution of technology, has made cyber security even more of a key strategic priority for business. However, in an era where ?digital? is synonymous with words like agility, adaptability, speed and seamless user experience, traditional risk-averse approaches to cyber security are no longer acceptable. We will discuss how security and usability need to be complimentary ideas, including different ways to achieve an acceptable balance of both.
