Past Success of iStorm
Previous editions of iStorm were successfully held in Pattaya in 2011, Bali in 2013 and in Atlantis, Dubai in 2015. During July’2017, the 1st ever iStorm specific to BFSI vertical was hosted in Udaipur, India.
The underlying theme for last edition of iStorm 2015 was ‘Together towards Tomorrow’, which was towards understanding business and IT challenges around Data, Network and Application protection and management, along with evolving compliance and threat management needs and to collaboratively address them by putting the best minds together to share and learn for keeping business ahead of threat and technology disruption while ensuring evolving compliance needs.
For the 1st time, vertical tracks were introduced with specific break-out sessions for BFSI, Government, ITeS & Manufacturing verticals. Vertical specific use-case, compliance needs and best practices shared helped CXO’s get maximum mileage from their interaction with OEM’s, Consultants and Industry experts.
The sharing of learning and experience from CXO’s from their own vertical, further enhanced relevance and learnings to all participating CXO’s during the Dubai event.
iStorm 2017 BFSI conclave saw participation of 70 delegates including Consultants, Industry experts, Regulatory body, OEM’s and Cyber Security experts. Most of the leaders acknowledged with the fact that ‘Digital Disruption’ is already the way forward, with SMAC and IoT adoption being the base camp to digital transformation.
The key takeaway for participants of iStorm BFSI were areas to focus on for DX initiatives along with an overall understanding of options available to stay safe and secure, keeping cognizance of fast evolving threat landscape in effective protection and management of Data, Network and Application – DNA of Digital business.
