Managing risk & building trust with LRQA

Information and cyber security experts from LRQA will be on hand to share their knowledge with Chief Information Officers and leading organisations from around the world at the IDC CIO Summit Middle East 2021.

This year’s virtual event will focus on a range of topics that are crucial to digital transformation and its role in addressing the demands of a much-changed threat landscape. Delegates will get insight into the current market along with the latest innovation and strategies, through a series of presentations, panel discussions and real-life case studies.

Shirish Bapat, Cyber & Information Security Specialist at LRQA said “The restrictions felt by everyone, in our personal and working lives, have been both unprecedented and unexpected. The shift to large-scale remote working and a lack of access to physical back-up sites has introduced new risks and accelerated CIO digitalisation strategies.

“Trust is now a factor growing in importance that will continue to be a key business driver so it’s crucial that organisations build on new ideas which go beyond traditional security measures. Customers need confidence in their processes like never before and moving forward, best practice risk management and independent assurance will be routes to a significant competitive advantage.”

LRQA works with some of the world’s leading organisations – supporting their security and resilience activities with a range of independent assurance services that add credibility and build trust.
