Rethinking security with Konica Minolta at the IDC European CISO Summit
Malware, ransomware attacks, phishing attacks — cyber-attacks can have dramatic consequences for a company’s business continuity. Being fully protected requires a corporate culture in which security is deeply rooted.
Join us for valuable dialogues from 16 to 17 November at the IDC European CISO Summit!
Interview between IDC Analyst Claudio Stahnke and Yoann Fortini, IT Services Go-To-Market Senior Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe about Konica Minolta’s holistic security approach.
„Digital transformation is first of all a question of people and culture, then only in the second step a question of technology. Security should follow the same path."
IT Services Go-To-Market Senior Manager, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe
“Although the CISO role is rapidly evolving and expanding, the primary objective is still to protect the organization. Doing so while saying “yes” more than “no” is the real challenge.”
