The roadshow will be held between March 7 and 9 in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Hyderabad.
Focusing on the theme, ‘Working Together Towards a Cyber-Resilient Tomorrow,’ the roadshow will have pre-eminent technology experts, vendors, and speakers discuss the latest trends, resilient strategies and innovations in the cybersecurity and digital forensics landscape, and security strategies that will help organizations stay protected in a digital-first era.
In this year’s roadshow, Exterro will have its Vice President Global Talent Management and Chief Data Scientist, Dr Kavitha Thangasami discuss the company’s success since the acquisition of AccessData, as well as the operations in India. Shashidhar Angadi, Chief Technology Officer at Exterro will also discuss the future of digital forensics and Legal GRC in India and how organizations can leverage technology to future proof their initiatives.
Over the last six years, the roadshow has been the platform of choice for digital forensics and security experts across the Middle East, Africa and South Asia markets to take a close look at the constantly evolving threat landscape. In 2022, the roadshow is expected to showcase the tools and an extensive knowledge base for organizations in India — both public and private — to improve incident response times and reduce the cost and complexity in investigating breaches.
Credence Security’s vendors including Exterro will shed light on how their latest offerings help ease cybersecurity concerns and enable organizations to focus on core business operations. The discussions aim to get Indian organizations to rethink their security approaches. With one-on-one networking opportunities, attendees will have a chance to catch up with industry peers in a safe meeting setting.
The discussion sessions at the event are classified into four tracks – Digital Forensics and Incident Response; Data Security and Governance; Continuous Adaptive Risk Assessment and Trust Assessment and Identity, Payments and Digital Security. Experts in these areas will have presentations along with real-life use cases, and advise on technology tracks that will provide a deeper understanding of the cybersecurity challenges facing business and the government in India.
The global cybersecurity market is expected to grow to US$ 345.4 billion by 2026, which is more than 58.5 percent from US$ 217.9 billion in 2021. At the same time, the global digital forensics market is expected to register a growth at a CAGR of 11%. The massive use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices coupled with factors such as stringent government regulations and the steady rise in cybercrimes on enterprises and critical infrastructure is expected to drive the demand for digital forensics software in India.
Exterro’s biggest global Partner, Credence Security, is its distributor for India and South-Asia, Middle East and Africa. With over 3,000 customers worldwide, India has the largest customer base for Exterro after the US and an important market. Located strategically, operations in India will help the company grow in other markets, including China, Western Asia and Africa.
“In India, particularly, the lack of awareness of regulations, delay in implementation of privacy laws has created confusion among organizations. Exterro is looking to help create awareness and provide solutions to these future problems, today well before PDPB comes into effect,” said Rajkumar Manickam, Sales Director South Asia at Exterro. “The discussions will also help organizations understand how technology is helping organizations manage regulatory and compliance requirements, allowing organizations to focus on the ever increasing cyberattacks, especially in a post-COVID-19 world. Probing cybercrimes can be doubly daunting and digital forensics is revolutionizing investigations. Cybersecurity and digital forensics go hand in hand and the roadshow will help Indian organizations understand the existing risks, formulate stronger security and investigation strategies and up incident response times.”
Commenting on the launch of the roadshow, Garreth Scott, Managing Director, Credence Security, said, “Threat actors are increasingly becoming more creative and sophisticated in their attack methods. Distributed work environments and increased digitization agendas have further expanded the threat landscape and exposed new vulnerabilities. With an eye towards building a cyber-resilient tomorrow, Credence Security and its partners are constantly looking closely at the impact that digital transformation has on security, privacy, and overall trust.”
“A strong and resilient cybersecurity strategy that is regularly reviewed and updated is the need of the hour. Businesses must arm themselves with robust technologies and be on top of market developments to effectively safeguard their operations. We are excited to launch the 2022 edition of our annual security roadshow as it will be an important platform to help our attendees strengthen their security postures and ensure business continuity.”
