Total Security Conference Hong Kong 2017

Challenging Security Norms - Forget IF, prepare for WHEN and learn the HOW.

A connected era demands a connected security mindset. With pervasive data sharing between companies, humans and machines challenging security norms, CISOs and security teams under siege. To break the siege, they need to balance network flexibility with the mitigation and elimination of increasingly sophisticated and profit-motivated threats.

Join the conversation, hear the questions and experience the answers at the Total Security Conference 2017. With a balance of renowned analysts, overseas and local C-level practitioners, and leading security solution providers, it aims to tackle the biggest questions that face today’s CISOs and keep them awake in the night. It will also end on an industry debate that tackles an ongoing dilemma that faces all Asian businesses: the fine balance between Privacy and Security.

Key topics to be covered this year:
  • Customer-centric security
  • CISO trends
  • DevsecOps
  • Container and virtualization security
  • Cloud security
  • Mobile security
  • CISO vs CIRO
  • Internet of things
  • Cryptography
  • … and much more
