31 August 2016
A select group of CIOs and CISOs gathered in Manila on 31 August 2016 for the first leg of the Cyber-resilience roundtable series hosted by CIO Academy Asia and partnered with Fortinet. Major Allan Cabanlong, Chief, Regional Information Technology Management Office 1 of PNP, kicked start the session by sharing interesting perspectives on his proposal on Cyber Security for the Philippines Government.
The security threat landscape is constantly changing; attacks are becoming more frequent and increasing in severity, its no longer a question of ‘if’ but rather ‘when’ will it happen!
Technologies such as cloud computing, social networks and powerful mobile devices are making networks more porous, creating more opportunities for attackers to infiltrate organisations. As many breaches go for months before they are detected, organisations are starting to take a more proactive approach to cyber-security, the key is to make sure that we are Cyber-Resilient!
According to the Scottish government, Cyber resilience is being able to prepare for, withstand, rapidly recover and learn from deliberate attacks or accidental events in the online world.
As we all strive for business preparedness, business continuity, and business improvements, delegates had insightful discussion on what it takes to embrace Cyber-resilience in this inter-connected digital world.
The session is a part of a multi-city Cyber-resilience roundtable series. To view the summary and key takeaways from these engagements, please visit here.
