Creating and Enabling Secure, Resilient, and Scalable Digital Transformation
When COVID-19 accelerated digital business, it also accelerated the trend wherein many digital assets — and individuals — are increasingly located outside of the traditional enterprise infrastructure. In alignment with the goal of assurance – which is to minimize risk – the focus of all assurance teams shifts to building methods, practices, approaches and frameworks for enabling secure, and scalable digital transformation for organization. In addition to building these frameworks, a lot of emphasis is to ensure the enablement of the same for ensuring resilience and sustainability. Built on the theme of Creating & Enabling Secure, Resilient, and Scalable Digital Transformation this year, the conference will display ideas, experiments, and experiences to explore challenges and suggest techniques and innovations to overcome common problems.
