Cybersecurity in a connected enterprise

Srđan Gligorić
Enterprise Accounts Manager for Balkans, Kaspersky

Digital transformation and Industry 4.0 as a new phase in the Industrial Revolution that focuses heavily on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data making the topic of cybersecurity more important than ever. Connectivity requires cybersecurity to develop, exist and succeed. The benefits we are expecting to happen in the era of The Connected Enterprise—faster time to market, lower total cost of ownership, improved asset utilization and enterprise risks management — can't and won't happen without mature cybersecurity function. One of the key points in realizing the concept of Connected Enterprise is cybersecurity, it needs a lot of collaboration and that is something new, it should not be a single business (or IT) function in the company. Outside of the enterprises as well, collaboration between researchers, vendors, system integrators is a must in order to develop new skills and knowledge to support new paradigm best we can.
