The State of Cyber Security: Where are we in 2016?

Jeremy Pizzala, Partner, Asia Pacific Cyber Security Leader, Ernst & Young

Digital connectedness is now firmly embedded in our societies and in the fabric of every organization. Public and private data travels rapidly across internal and external networks and hops seamlessly between ever-increasing numbers of devices. Cyber security requires leaders to ensure the appropriate confidentiality, integrity, and availability of this data and the safety, stability, and resilience of the infrastructure. With massive volumes of data, more connected devices, and greater dependency on this digital ecosystem, the challenges have also increased. However our available approaches and tools have also evolved.

This keynote address will help the audience understand, in plain terms, the current state of cyber security threats and some of the emerging innovative solutions available to leaders.

09:45 - 10:15 Keynote One
Redifining Cyber Security in the Age of Insecurity

Bill Chang, Country Chief Officer, Singapore & CEO, Singtel Group Enterprise

We all live in an age where the pace of digitization and mobilization is fast accelerating. As governments and enterprises find new ways to serve their citizens and customers, they are transforming their business models for greater efficiency and customer experience. This not only creates new and exciting business opportunities, but also spawns new threat landscapes in the cyber security space.

Recent study indicated that over 95% of enterprises and government agencies are compromised and don't know it. As new technologies are developed and implemented, they also present new attack vectors that evil doers can take advantage of to attack your IT security systems and processes. And often, enterprises and governments are compromised without even knowing. Not only do they need to be able to protect, respond and recover from these acts, they must be able to pre-empt such attacks.

In this session, the speaker will share cyber security war stories and strategies to protect, respond and recover from these sophisticated advanced threats.

10:15 - 10:45 Keynote Two
Breach Preparedness in the New Threat Landscape

Wias Issa, Senior Director, FaaS, Asia Pacific & Japan, FireEye

How soon will you find out when theres a breach? According to our research, 96 percent of systems were breached on average. In the new threat landscape, the attacks are advanced, stealthy and malicious. And it just take minutes for the attacks to cause irreversible damage. However, organizations can solidify their security best practices involving technology, intelligence and expertise, and hone its ability to detect and contain advanced attacks before they do any damage.

In this session, the speaker will discuss the challenges of breach preparedness and share the best practices to avoid impacts from advanced attack. Using the recent attacks from different threat groups as case studies e.g. Operation Clandestine Wolf, he will also share how FireEye identify and remediate this zero day attack from these threat groups.

10:45 - 11:10 Networking Coffee Break / Showcase Visit

11:10 - 11:40 Keynote Three
Secure Your IT Infrastructure in the Era of ABC - Analytics, BYOD and Cloud

John Ellis, Chief Strategist, Cyber Security, Asia Pacific & Japan, Akamai Technologies

The pace of IT evolution is not slowing, particularly with the trends of big data, BYOD and Cloud. With this progress we also see the growth of the security threat landscape gaining momentum. Being the double-edge sword, they enable strategic advantage to businesses while contributing to the complexity of security vulnerability. How can we secure IT infrastructure from App to Network, and down to internal users themselves?

11:40 - 12:10 Keynote Four
When Things of the Internet Attack

Ziv Mador, Vice President, Security Research, Trustwave

As the number of smart devices on our networks increases exponentially, so too does the risk these things of the internet pose. The rush to market can often take priority over sound security posture. While the technology is exciting, failures in the security of automation technology can have real world impact. All of this begs questions such as "How should these technologies be tested?" and "How shall organizations protect themselves against these threats?". This session will present strategies and actions that are critical to a successfully secure design and deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) and will discuss how Managed Security Services can assist customers protect themselves from a variety of threats including IoT-based crime.
