Cyber Security Digital Summit - APAC 2020

July 14-15 2020

Criminals are finding new threat vectors and advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence to strengthen their attacks and seek out vulnerabilities. The upside to this is that many companies are finally beginning to make cyber security a top priority, digging deeper into establishing where their threats lie and looking to fight back with evermore sophisticated software.

As more and more CISOs get a place at the boardroom table, the Cyber Security Digital Summit looks at what more can be done. With such a huge amount of sophisticated technology available to CISOs; what works best? As your enterprise becomes digitalized, and BYOD increases, what needs to change to keep your organization safe? The event also looks into best practice when working with the hybrid cloud, privileged access management, automation and third-party risk management. Additionally, we revisit data analytics, looking at how you can tackle scale and data relevance to enhance security awareness, threat intelligence and monitor changing risks. Join us in July at this one-of-a-kind, free, online event.
