Strategic Priorities for a Cyber Resilient Organisation

Organisations today are faced with a fast-changing, highly connected business landscape. As the cybersecurity threat landscape grows in complexity, technology and info-security leaders must shift to an offensive position against malicious attacks.

Security leaders are now expected to effectively communicate and engage with board members on risk management strategies, embed new cyber security within a seamless digital user experience and integrate dedicated solutions to protect their various digital systems.

This Thought Leadership Forum is an exclusive gathering for technology and security leaders to exchange views on the approaches to cybersecurity management, next generation technologies and strategic priorities for a future-ready cyber-defence strategy.

This half-day Forum will cover:

  • How robust security toolkits can be integrated to isolate employees and customers from malicious internet content, while delivering a frictionless online customer experience.
  • How organisations are leveraging the broader community through initiatives such as bug-bounty programmes and threat intelligence sharing.
  • Case studies about how advanced technologies like blockchain can be adopted to secure your digital partnership ecosystem.
  • How technology and security leaders can build well-integrated cybersecurity toolkits to protect business-critical assets in a zero-trust security architecture?
