During their Recognition Award Gala of November 8, the Palais des congrès de Montréal marked the invaluable collaboration of 18 Ambassadors who helped bring 12 international conferences to Montréal. These major events represent over $73 million in economic benefits for Montréal and Québec, and will draw more than 32,000 delegates to the city. “Montréal hosts more international events than any other city in the Americas, an honour vastly attributable to our Ambassadors and their commitment to advocating for their city and their scientific fields all over the world,” mentioned Robert Mercure, President and CEO of the Palais des congrès de Montréal. “The Recognition Award Gala recognizes the undeniable contribution and leadership of these Ambassadors, but also the role played by our industry partners, especially Tourisme Montréal and the Hotel Association of Greater Montréal,” he added.

“For over 30 years, the Club’s Ambassadors have helped to make Montréal the city that hosts the greatest number of international events in North America. They include dedicated individuals who, through their efforts to attract thousands of convention delegates to Montréal, are enabling Québec to take advantage of a striking showcase among international clienteles”, noted Minister of Tourism Caroline Proulx.

327 INFLUENTIAL MEMBERS
The Recognition Award Gala shines the spotlight on the exceptional work of these dynamic and influential women and men who, on top of their regular careers, actively involve themselves in the process of attracting international conferences to Montréal, and the Palais. This year, 16 new well-known figures joined the Ambassadors Club, while two existing members confirmed their Emeritus Ambassador status for delivering a second international conference in the case of Professor Fabrice Labeau, and a third conference for Professor Hany Moustapha, who is also the Club’s President. “Since 1985, the passion that drives the 327 members of the Club has helped attract nearly 250 major events, which have contributed $1.1 billion to the city’s and province’s economy, plus significant intellectual wealth,” said an enthusiastic Professor Hany Moustapha, President of the Ambassadors Club.

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) vendors have begun to inject greater versatility into their platforms as well as incorporate new security functionalities and analyst-friendly dashboards. Also, managed SIEM providers are offering cloud-hosted SIEM solutions to lower the per customer cost-to-serve to penetrate the SMB market.

These advances will drive the $1.98 billion global SIEM market toward $3.23 billion by 2023. “SIEM 3.0, with its high degree of automated response and remediation, can detect malicious threats attempting to penetrate the environment and automatically perform actions to thwart attackers’ advances,” said Mauricio Chede, Senior Industry Analyst, Digital Transformation. “The integration of several functionalities, such as user & entity behavior analytics (UEBA), security operation and automation response (SOAR), and forensic analysis, is essential to effectively compete in the SIEM market.”

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)—Global Market Analysis, Forecast to 2023, examines the market drivers, restraints, and market distribution channels of the SIEM market. It presents revenue forecasts and key findings to help participants make the most of the market potential. The study covers the four product types of physical appliancevirtual appliance, software, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

“SIEM vendors are currently focusing on enhancing incident detection and response (IDR) by employing machine learning to diminish the high rates of false positives generated by SIEM tools,” noted Chede. “They are also aiming to provide SIEM integration with external threat intelligence and forensic capabilities.”

In 2018, North America accounted for 65% of the SIEM market; EMEA, 20% percent; APAC, 12%; and Latin America, 4%. Growth opportunities will materialize by:

  • Automating the platform to increase the reliability of alert analysis and improve security analyst productivity.
  • Employing the cloud for multi-tenancy and distributed administrative functions.
  • Building a data lake to receive the logs from other security tools and then correlating and analyzing them to block advanced or unknown attacks with less human intervention.
  • Ensuring compliance with global and local data protection regulations.
  • Equipping channel partners with an effective go-to-market strategy so they can transform their sales motion from selling product to solving business problems.
