Operation: ENIGMA What can you expect this time?

A lot has changed since our last Operation: ENIGMA event. In recent developments, AI is now being used to both accelerate threats and improve defences. Complex cloud and hybrid environments are creating new vulnerabilities, and a lot of new security solutions have been released.


Keeping up is tough. It’s no wonder cyber security is awash with misconceptions. But at this year’s Operation: ENIGMA, we’re decoding security in the cloud.

Decoding the Mystery: Cyber Security in the Cloud

Creating robust digital defences in the age of AI, remote work, and complex hybrid environments

“It’s often unclear whether Microsoft users need extra security solutions. At Operation: ENIGMA, we’re decoding that.”

Operation: ENIGMA takeaways: you’ll walk away knowing the risks, understanding the solutions, and confident in your ability to create a multi-layered defence strategy

Since our last event, the proliferation of AI tools has changed the cyber landscape in terms of threats and solutions.

Your customers are likely adopting complex cloud and hybrid environments; remote work, bring your own device (BYOD) policies, and several cloud tools.

Combined, these changes mean their risk profiles and vulnerabilities are shifting rapidly. Staying up to date can be challenging, so it’s hard to feel fully confident that users are properly protected.

At this year’s Operation: ENIGMA, we’ll be diving into the latest cloud and cyber security threats and solutions, exploring how they can be combined to create a robust security strategy that offers the best protection for digital assets in the cloud.

This event will feature interactive activities, keynotes and vendor zones aimed to inspire you to take action and feel confident in growing your security line of business. At the end of the event, you’ll feel ready to defend your customers in the unsecured spaces of the internet!

Fitting it all together: creating a multi-layered security strategy

At times it can seem like there’s a new security solution or feature released every day.


With so many different solutions available, cyber security can get pretty confusing. What do they all do? How do they work? Do they duplicate Microsoft’s built-in security features? And crucially, do users actually need all of need them?


The truth is that in today’s cybersecurity landscape, a multi-layered security strategy is usually the best way to protect your customers from data theft and system attacks.


At Operation: ENIGMA, our aim is to decode the mysteries of cybersecurity in a fun, digestible, and interactive learning experience. With this knowledge, you will be confident in creating a robust, fit-for-purpose security strategy for each of your users using the best-fit security solutions from our partners.
