EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

A year into the pandemic, organizations have been able to sustain competitiveness by pivoting quickly to digital-first strategies.  While the investment leads to greater productivity, the accelerated digital transformation has also created new opportunities for cybercriminals. According to the IDC Asia/Pacific CxO Study 2021, optimization and risk management are now key C-Suite priorities and organizations need to move ahead in more strategic ways.

 

Join us at the Fortinet Security Summit to hear from IDC cybersecurity leader and Fortinet experts on how you can build digital resilience into your business and operations.

SESSION DETAILS

Peerapong sets the scene for this inaugural Fortinet Security Summit, highlighting the key drivers and trend behind the event.

While the same cyber security challenges remain since the beginning of the year, we face yet another significant shift with the rise of new intelligent edges, which is more than just end-users and devices remotely connecting to the network.

Join FortiGuard Labs, the threat intelligence and research organization at Fortinet, for a deep dive discussion on:

  •  Major threat trends from the first half of 2021
  •  Latest cyber-attack trends
  •  How-to make strategic security decisions based on these threat insights

Building business resilience and mitigating risks is the #2 busines priority of organizations in Asia Pacific, after cost reduction. After a challenged 2020 where working from home brought with it a new range of security risks and business challenges, 2021 has brought with it fresh supply chain and ransomware attacks of a newer, higher and more worrying magnitude.

While the top challenge for security leaders remain focused on finding staff with the necessary skills to mitigate today’s security challenges, business leaders are trying to understand the return on investments and the immediate value of IT security. The jarring gap between both groups needs to be bridged before the business is compromised.

In this session, IDC’s Vice President of Security, Simon Piff will speak on why the move from tactics to strategy is more important today than ever before. Security leaders will also be able to learn and hear from our speaker on:

  •  A model that helps IT security professionals connect with business leaders
  •  How to discuss the ideal strategies that suit future-proofing the IT security environment
  •  How CISO's and IT security leaders can close the gap between the current attitude to IT security that business leaders exhibit, to the one that suits all parties, customers and partners.

Digital transformation has taken on renewed urgency since the pandemic started. Each new digitalization initiative brings new cyber risks to businesses. A well planned cyber security strategy and solution should complement and support these digitalization efforts, without compromising the efficiencies and benefits that they bring.

In this presentation, Ching Ping will discuss:

  • Evolution of security strategies
  • Reassessment of security risk
  • Simplifying and automating security
  • Shifting from a point-defense approach to a holistic framework
