Mimecast announces first North American Cyber Resilience Summit in Dallas
Security and IT professionals to discuss the complexities of today’s security environments and how to combat disruption
Dallas, TX – Mimecast Limited (NASDAQ: MIME), a leading email and data security company, today announced its first North American Cyber Resilience Summit to be held in Dallas, Texas October 28-30, 2019. This Cyber Resilience Summit is built around the theme of ‘Resilience Now. Resilience Together™‘ and will bring together public and private IT and Information Security leaders, Mimecast customers and partners, and global experts. Attendees of the Summit will experience hands-on, knowledge-transfer sessions focused on key cybersecurity and cyber resilience issues affecting modern organizations.
In addition to knowledge sharing and building on key skills and certifications, attending the Summit provides the opportunity to network, better understand how to get the most out of your organization’s security ecosystem, and ultimately help aligning IT and Security teams to create robust resilience strategies and expand the value of your Mimecast investment.
“Organizations struggle with planning for and achieving a level of cyber resilience to help combat disruption to their business. This disruption comes in many forms: malicious and criminal intent, technology failure and human error. It’s a triple threat that makes the jobs of IT and security professionals very difficult as they must understand not only how to avoid disruption, but also how to withstand it when it inevitably occurs,” said Peter Bauer, chief executive officer at Mimecast.
Research has shown that the average number of security tools in an enterprise is approximately 75. Tracks during the Cyber Resilience Summit will address the complexity this brings, and will highlight the inefficiencies, ineffectiveness and risk that brings to any security environment.
“We recently hosted a Cyber Resilience Summit in South Africa and it was a tremendous success – seeing an attendance of almost 1000 IT and security professionals. We want to bring that same level of excitement and dedication to achieve something great across the globe,” commented Bauer. “We’re hosting the next Cyber Resilience Summit in Dallas to bring together top minds to discuss how resilience is also something that comes in many forms. Our speakers will tell stories of unimaginable challenges they have overcome, inspiration they’ve drawn from their experiences and the opportunities that have been presented to them. We will all come together to learn from each other to help build a more resilient world.”
