APAC Data Centre Security Symposium Event Brief: –
For enterprise leaders across the globe if the last 10 years have taught them anything then it surely is the point that disasters and risks can occur at any given point of time.
In today’s time where modern technology is available for everyone and where cyber threats and related crimes are growing on a day to day basis organizations need to keep their eyes open in order to avert such incidents.
In a rush to build data centers, colocation & hyperscale players overlook the security aspect for data centers at a time when organizations need a secure data center ecosystem and is their number 1 priority.
A recent survey in which 49 companies from 14 industries participate showed us that : –
- The average cost of a data center breach can cost around $150 million
- Malicious or criminal attacks account for 37% of total breaches
- The global data center security market is expected to grow by US$21.858 billion in 2026
So in order to discuss about the latest developments and issues faced by the major data center players W.Media is organizing an extensive networking & knowledge sharing event where technology, security and operation leaders from across the sub continent can discuss, share and learn on how to save their data centers from critical risks faced from outside their data center ecosystems.
