"Cyber-crime is the greatest threat to every company in the world."
- Ginni Rometty, Chairman, President and CEO, IBM
A recent Gartner report predicts that worldwide spending on information security products and services will grow to 8.7 percent to $124 billion in 2019. The major block of that investment from enterprises is on acquiring end-to-end and integrated security services.
As more enterprises are becoming digital-native at a faster pace and rely heavily on hybrid/public cloud, increased data generation and consumption through powerful analytic engines and are adopting to XaaS as the way forward for their solution procurement and integration, the security vulnerabilities increase multiple folds.
Attempting to handle such exponential security threats, within emerging network systems such as WAN, within unknown threats presented from increased sensorization from IoT and crypto/blockchain integration challenges, is fast becoming a complicated matrix.
The 4th Annual Total Security Conference Hong Kong will provide a comprehensive coverage on new threats and challenges for critical enterprise assets, emerging from three new approaches: strategic trends such as digital transformation, cloudification, XaaS, and WAN; tactical trends such as mobility, blockchain, web security, app security, and ecommerce issues; and new threat vectors in phishing, ransomware, malware, DDoS etc.
Key topics discussed in 2019 to enhance your security strategies:

From insiders to sophisticated external attackers, the reality of cyber security today is that the threat is already inside. A fundamentally new approach to cyber defense is needed to detect and investigate these threats that are already inside the network - before they turn into a full-blown crisis.
Based on unsupervised machine learning and probabilistic mathematics developed by specialists from the University of Cambridge, new ‘immune system’ technologies are capable of learning the ‘self’ of an organization. By analyzing every network, device, and user, and modelling them as they go about their day-to-day activity, the Enterprise Immune System can establish a highly accurate understanding of normal behavior. It can therefore spot abnormal activity as it emerges, and even take precise, measured actions to automatically curb the threat.
Rules and signatures are not keeping pace with today’s rapidly evolving cyber attacks. The Enterprise Immune System represents a fundamental step-change in automated cyber defense, is relied upon by organizations around the world, and can cover up to millions of devices.
