Prominent founders, global cybersecurity experts and chief information security officers (CISOs) of large enterprises as well as tech unicorns will gather at the Accel Cybersecurity Summit scheduled to be held in Bengaluru on July 25, according to reports.

The mega summit will provide a platform for startups to showcase their cybersecurity innovations and pitch to a select group of CISOs from both big enterprises and tech unicorns, including PhonePe, Groww, Cred, and Flipkart.

Accel is set to host India's largest Cybersecurity Summit on July 25, 2024, in Bengaluru.

To evangelise the early-stage cybersecurity startup ecosystem in India, the event will bring together security operators, CISOs and notable founders from across the world.

According to the Data Security Council of India, the market reached approximately $ 6 billion in 2023, clocking a CAGR (compounded annual growth rate) of over 30 per cent from 2019 to 2023.

There are significant opportunities for the founders in India to build the next generation of global cybersecurity companies focusing on areas like AI (artificial intelligence) in cybersecurity, application security, and security operations

“India's cybersecurity landscape is maturing quickly. With the exponential growth of large SaaS (software as a service) and consumer companies in India, security teams have become highly skilled at combating increasing threat surfaces,” says Prayank Swaroop, partner, Accel.

“There are significant opportunities for the founders in India to build the next generation of global cybersecurity companies focusing on areas like AI (artificial intelligence) in cybersecurity, application security, and security operations,” adds Swaroop.

The Application Security track covers topics such as setting up high-quality AppSec programs, including practices and tools to protect applications from threats and vulnerabilities during development and deployment, and automating tasks across the AppSec stack.

The Security Operations track examines how to leverage Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and security orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) to automate security operations, and discusses strategies to scale security operations as your organization grows.
