Experts harp on cyber security over rising threats
Experts have harped on the need for companies to be proactive in adopting efficient security measures in the face of rising cyber security threats.
This was said during the “Secure Enterprise 2019” organised by ITANDT Solutions Limited, a leading software development and IT Security company, in collaboration with International Business Machines (IBM) and Interdist Alliances, a Value-Added Distributor (VAD).
Managing Director, ITANDT Solutions Limited, Akpos Okoro, said there is no such thing as perfect security, hence, the need for an agile and pragmatic approach to ensure growth and innovation. He said if measures were not put in place to detect and respond to incidents, irreparable brand damage and financial losses could occur.
IBM Security Solutions (Central and West Africa), Ronald Martey described how IBM’s top leading Security Intelligence solution, QRadar SIEM consolidates siloed information to effectively detect and manage complex threats.
According to him, the secret behind QRadar being the solution of choice is mainly because of its Watson cognitive (embedded Artificial Intelligence) ability to fight cybercrime, coupled with its ability to integrate with IBM and other third party components for automated response to intrusion attempts or incidents.
