Distinguished CEO Series – Championing collaboration in combating cyber-threats
28 July 2017

CIO Academy Asia held a private luncheon at Forlino Restaurant, together with CenturyLink. Dave Mahon, Chief Security Officer for CenturyLink, shared current best practices and new proactive strategies and policies to combat and withstand cyber-threats, with the rise of IoT and intelligent edge technologies, organisations are more vulnerable than ever to cyber-attacks.

In addition, a new Cyber Security Bill will be introduced later this year, to address security gaps in Critical Information Infrastructure (CII), including those used to run banking, telecoms, transport, healthcare and energy essential services. Understanding that breaches will occur, security executives must work with senior leaders and boards of directors to assess value, measure costs, and identify risk to then properly architect and implement a comprehensive security programme.
