Some Cybersecurity experts yesterday in Lagos advised organisations that handle financial services and sensitive user data to proactively adopt measures that are capable of protecting themselves from the increasing wave of cybersecurity threats.





The experts, who gathered
   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), also urged enterprises to
remove the traditional security perimeter and adopt cloud, mobile, Internet of
Things and social technologies to mitigate cyber risks.





 .





 There's no such thing
as perfect security. An agile and commercially pragmatic approach is essential
for the growth and innovation required to thrive in the new world. But what we
are advocating is for enterprises to put measures in place to timely detect and
rapidly respond to incidents, where irreparable brand damage and financial
losses could occur,   the MD/CEO of ITANDT Solutions Limited, Mr Akpos Okoro,
said.





At the event, which was
well attended by leading financial institutions and some other companies, two
experts from IBM described how to expose new risks and challenges being faced
in the cyber world as well as the technologies they could adopt to address
them.





Ronald Martey of IBM
Security Solutions (Central and West Africa) described how IBM has helped
organisations to work ahead of the cyber criminals and also avoid heavy
regulatory sanctions.





Citing QRadar, IBM's top
leading Security Intelligence solution, Martey said the solution consolidates
siloed information to more 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.





Also, at the event,
Khalid Shaban of IBM Security (Middle East and Africa) described how IBM
addresses some other challenges, through the use of IBM MaaS360 with Watson, an
Enterprise Mobility Management/ Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) Solution. The
solution enables organizations that use mobile devices in the corporate network
to achieve desired productivity without compromising control of what users do
with such devices while accessing corporate resources.





Khalid also described
how IBM Guardian Analyzer helps organizations to confidently demonstrate
compliance with GDPR, PCI DSS and other data protection regulations. It also
guides database administrators and managers to proactively detect
vulnerabilities and prioritize fixing them before they become big issues.





Mr. Raphael Nwosu,
General Manager at ITANDT Solutions Limited also briefed the press on how the
company has been empowering the businesses of various organisations in
partnership with world leading technology like IBM and Interdist Alliances.
