Can We Outsmart the Hackers?

The short answer is YES, but the journey is not an easy one! First, there is a need to understand gaps and vulnerabilities. Next, there has to be awareness of the changing threat landscape as well as practices that other similar enterprises are adopting. Finally, security needs to be made a part of an organisation’s DNA. Gain deeper insights on the threat landscape in Asia; some of the solutions in the region such as regulations, data privacy and information sharing utilities across sectors; and how to prioritise assets for differentiated protection.

Ace Your Cyber Defence with Expertise, Intelligence and Technology

The pace of digitisation and mobilisation is accelerating. As governments and enterprises seek to find new ways to serve their citizens and customers, they are transforming their business models for greater efficiency and better customer experience. This not only creates new and exciting business opportunities, but also spawns new threat landscapes in the cyber security space.

The new generation of cyber threats requires a fundamentally new approach to cyber defence. There is a need to have a comprehensive strategy which includes expertise, intelligence and technology to boost cyber security protection.

In this session, the speaker will share the latest cyber security war stories and how to ace your cyber defence with a comprehensive strategy.

Head, Asia Pacific Operations, Cyber Security, Group Enterprise, Singtel

10:15 - 10:45 Keynote Two
Drive Business Decisions with Security Ratings

A recent survey from consulting firm BDO International found that 54% of board directors are more involved in cyber security today than one year ago. As companies continue to face new threats to their information assets, it becomes increasingly important for organisations to answer the fundamental question: Is my organisation secure?

While it is impossible to guarantee absolute security, benchmarking performance against peers and industry averages can provide visibility to an organisation’s performance relative to others. This intelligence can be leveraged across the enterprise, from making tactical decisions within the security team to strategic C-level decisions on investments, initiatives and hiring for cyber security.

Join us as we share how your business can:

• Benchmark security performance: Measure and compare your security performance against your competitors and use it to communicate objectively with your board.
• Manage third-party risk: Stay alert to risks across your entire network ecosystem including business partners, vendors and M&A targets.
• Underwrite cyber insurance: Assess the security performance of insured companies to reduce underwriting risks and negotiate your own policy.

Stay Ahead of Cyber Threats

Every day, a new headline, tweet, or alert appears suddenly, and more often than not, enterprises are forced to be reactive to unforeseen threats. By 2019, the cost of cyber breaches is projected to reach over US$2 Trillion; over 3 Trillion records have been lost since 2013; the consolidated total cost of a data breach is US$4 Million; and the cost per record of a data breach is US$158.

Vulnerabilities in applications, databases and networks introduce security weaknesses that can increase your data breach risk. But keeping track of the systems-throughout their lifecycle and evolution-and their associated vulnerabilities can be a monumental challenge.

Michael Gianarakis, Director of SpiderLabs, Trustwave will discuss the changing paradigm to keep your organization up to speed, rapidly identify and address security weaknesses.

11:40 - 12:10 Keynote Four
A Thin Line Between Malicious Insiders and External Attackers

Protection from external attackers fails with the weakest point in security, the endpoint, and once the adversary is in, it is a game of resilience and patience. What is the average time an organisation takes to detect that it has been attacked? Too long. According to a number of industry sources, it is well over 200 days.

What if we adopted a shift in mindset, from one end of the spectrum where we think something “will happen”, to the other end of the spectrum where we assume that something “has already happened”?

Security may also yield better results if we treat all attackers as insiders. Think about this: If you assume that attackers already know our networks’ topology and where our servers and valuable data are, then they may have even obtained the credentials needed to access the data. To make matters worse, once the attackers gain a foothold in the organisation, they have a variety of Windows operating system tools at their disposal that can help them do the rest of the job. Alternatively, they can download some of the publicly available tools (such as psexec).

In short, the external attacker is now behaving like a malicious insider. And how do we counter that threat? What information do we need? Where do we look for contextual data? How do we distinguish between malicious and benign activity? This requires a major shift in how you approach security.

In this session, we will discuss the impact that malicious insiders can have on an organisation, and how organisational negligence can lead to bad outcomes. Additionally, we will outline five critical signs that you have an insider problem, the role behavioural analysis has in helping you define this threat and how to apply practical steps to better construct your defences.

Joining Forces in Cyber Threat Prevention

In today’s increasingly connected digital society, cybersecurity plays a critical role in assuring delivery of mission critical applications and services. However, successfully thwarting today’s sophisticated attacks requires security professionals to leverage technology and processes that deliver automated and prevention-focused outcomes.

This session will focus on the role of automation in cybersecurity and how it enables security professionals to regain the advantage in the fight against cyberattacks. During this presentation we will review how cybersecurity strategy has evolved towards automation and prevention, along with demonstrating the technology and processes in action with the perspective of the attacker, end-user, and service provider.

Maximise Your Security Investments: Moving to Intel-Led Security Operations

The CISO is the general in the war against cyber threats, ultimately responsible for putting together the human and technical resources to protect the enterprise and for placing them on the field of battle. Just as good military intelligence helps generals explain their actions and retain the confidence of their superiors, cyber threat intelligence can help CISOs and other senior IT executives communicate with the CEO and board about the threats facing their enterprise and how the IT organisation is responding.

Get the most out of your existing security technology and people investments, by understanding how intelligence can help better detect, investigate and respond to threats. You will also learn how to prioritise security spend, make alerts actionable and identify the business impact.
