Trend Micro Embarks on World’s Largest Cybersecurity Tour

JOHANNESBURG, 21 June, 2023 Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cybersecurity leader, has embarked on a world tour that will reach 122 cities within 90 days in its ongoing mission to help organisations mitigate surging cyber risk. Recently, Trend Micro hosted experts at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand.

The tour kicked off in April with events hosted in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, and many more still to take place over the next couple of months. The Risk to Resilience world tour brings together Trend Micro’s top security experts to discuss the latest in cybersecurity from cloud and data protection to cyber insurance and risk management.

Gareth Redelinghuys, Country Managing Director African Cluster at Trend Micro “Attack surfaces are expanding and increasing cyber risk at organisations of all sizes. Trend research has shown that many executives don’t fully understand what resources their security teams need to discover and mitigate vulnerabilities. Our goal with the Risk to Resilience world tour is to help IT leaders understand their risk, communicate with executives, and improve their resilience.”

Organisations are investing billions worldwide in digital transformation. But the same investments are also expanding the corporate cyberattack surface at a time of critical security skills shortages. Trend Micro’s tour is bringing together industry experts and analysts, threat intelligence and insights for a private leadership level discussion.

Unfortunately, new research reveals that senior corporate executives still underestimate security’s role as a driver of business success.64% of business decision makers see a strong connection between cybersecurity and business risk – yet only 1/3 say they report cyber as a business risk, while 28% don’t record cyber risk at all.

Some of key conversations included expert perspectives on:

  • Improving risk posture
  • Accelerating business resilience
  • Making proactive risk-based decisions
  • Emulating real-world success stories
  • Bridging skills gaps with intuitive tools and workflow automation
  • Enhancing visibility, reduce costs, improve security outcomes, and ease compliance obligations through consolidation
