The event will also give due credit and honour those individuals who have excelled in the field of Cyber-Security.
Wednesday, 19thSeptember 2018, Mumbai: Mumbai city will be hosting the second edition of the Big Cyber-Security Show and Awards, at The Leela on September 20, 2018. The first edition, in 2017, housed more than 150 CTOs, CIOs, CXOs, CEOs, CISOs and Cyber-Tech experts from all across the nation, as well as leaders in the field of cyber-security. The show is being conducted by international business events and consulting firm Trescon.
As of June 2018, 62% of the urban population and 53% of rural individuals access the internet on a daily basis. An upward spike in the number of internet users open-up an equal number of avenues for cyber-threats. As the sub-continent positions itself to embrace its ‘Digital India’ leap, questions about cyber-security have cropped up.
Citizen data privacy, malicious malware, penetrative hacks, botnets and spam are just some of the minor problems that pop-up when discussing cyber-security. And with rapid expansion and development, the intensity and strength of these attacks have increased. On an average in India, companies have lost about INR 3.7 Crores (US$ 500,000) annually due to cyber-threats.
The event will conduct a series of engaging panel discussions, fire-side chats, keynote addresses and technical presentations that will discuss growing concerns in the cyber-security space, as well as showcase implementation strategies to help protect organisations against these concerns.
Speaking about the event, Mohammad Saleem, CEO of Trescon said, “With new technologies hitting the market every day, there is a lot of potential for exponential growth in the realm of cyber-security. Because it doesn’t matter if you’re a regional IT firm or Fortune500 conglomerate, no organisation is truly 100% safe from cyber-threats. Hence, we need to always be on our toes”.
The event will also be the venue for the ‘Big 50 CISO Awards’, which will honour and felicitate leaders, technology drivers and cyber-security experts from around India. This is to recognise their continuous efforts in helping organisations and institutions protect data and keep digital infrastructures safe!
The show is officially being sponsored by technology partners that include Reddington-IBM, Rediff Enterprise and Smokescreen, among others.
Trescon is specialized in producing highly focused B2B events that connect businesses with opportunities through conferences, road shows, expos, demand generation, investor connect and consulting services.
