CISO on the Warpath: Resetting the Battleground to Our Advantage

Cyber security threats and breaches have been among those highly compromised since the global pandemic struck in 2020. Parallel to this, most organisations across the globe have elevated cyber security to the top of the business agenda, making them a board-level issue and todays’ CISOs hold a more critical role than ever.

Throughout 2021, CISOs and cyber security decision-makers have found themselves busy with the continued uncertainty around COVID-19 restrictions, securing digital transformation initiatives, hybrid remote workspaces, constantly evolving cyber incidents and increased use of software for remote working – all added to the complexity of protecting company and customer data.

Also, as a consequence of the widespread availability and use of computing technology and fast-changing data protection landscape in recent years, ASEAN businesses are often challenged by cyber security threats which cause businesses to suffer from data loss, among a few.

As we enter 2022, the cyber security challenges that accompany the pandemic, unfortunately, persist, prompting CISOs and security leaders in the region to stay abreast of the fast-evolving threat landscape and innovations in cloud computing and other technological advances that potentially open up new threats in unexpected areas.

This summit event will gather senior information security professionals from multiple industries across ASEAN to address CISOs’ top security trends, concerns and business priorities this year. This virtual forum aims to discuss the best-in-class strategies and technologies to refactor enterprise security architecture, enable secure innovations, mitigate third-party software vulnerabilities, create robust and resilient IT security amidst the expanding threats in the ASEAN countries.
