"Cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving, and will continue to increase in sophistication, intensity, and scale. Similarly, while implementing the recommendations is a necessary and vital first step, organisations must constantly renew, review, and refresh their security structures, technology, and readiness."
- COI Report on SingHealth Cyber Breach
In the past year, Singapore has been hit by a string of high-profile security breaches, the most prominent being the SingHealth leak of 1600000 patient records, resulting in a hefty fine and a general loss of public confidence.
With many such incidents reported regionally in an increasing scale, security professionals are propelled to review their vulnerabilities from the perspectives of people, processes and technology, to avoid costly damages to credibility, operational discontinuity and revenue losses through penalties, fines and lost opportunities.
A changed culture necessitates that enterprises adopt security-first approach while undertaking digital transformation without compromising security for agility. Fast-evolving cloud, data and networking technologies challenge the security professionals to continuously equip them on sophisticated threat intelligence.
Questex Asia’s Total Security Conference 2019 in Singapore on 20 August will provide an ideal platform for all the stakeholders to define a common working platform and to improve the agility and response time and effectiveness in handling cybersecurity challenges.
Key topics discussed in 2019 to enhance your security strategies:

Don’t miss the Total Security Conference 2019, Singapore, the longest running cybersecurity event of the region – in converting the new digital opportunities without compromising on integrating a robust and holistic cybersecurity architecture.
With transformed enterprises aiming to be the first to capture markets through enhanced speed-to-market, it is imperative for CISOs to rethink and realign security processes.
Organizations have been moving to cloud to leverage on financial advantages, flexibilities and the promise of security. Yet, security control now rests with the vendor. Lack of interoperability creates vulnerabilities.
We need to move from a reactive security model to a proactive security model based on threat intelligence.
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 modeling 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.
In this session, learn:
The risk exposure that exists in a typical enterprise continues to increase with no end in sight. This growth is accelerating not only due to “traditional” Information Technology platforms but because of the exponential increase in the number of non-traditional Internet of Things (IoT) devices that are being deployed into enterprise networks.
Identifying and eliminating all vulnerabilities in an enterprise network is an insurmountable task, and we find ourselves in a perpetual state of triage versus balancing operational capabilities. This begs the question: Are we fixing the vulnerabilities that have the most impact to the organisation, while reducing our cyber exposure risk effectively?
This session will present the problem and advanced techniques that will help you identify and mitigate the subset of vulnerabilities that expose you to the greatest risks while reducing your workload and balancing enterprise-critical assets.
It will also address the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Technology Risk Management (TRM) Guidelines on how using best practices can help organisations identify, implement and enhance their cybersecurity practices and use a common language to communicate issues to stakeholders.
Enterprises are stressed for improved speed-to-market in their quests to capture and retain market share. CISOs are now needed not only to rethink and realign the enterprise security, but also educate the architecture and business side stakeholders towards the fast-paced development processes.
Cyber threats present strategic risks to organizations. Beyond technology solutions and given the fact that humans represent the weakest link, a robust Cybersecurity Governance, Risk and Compliance ("GRC") Framework is critical to create cyber resilient organizations.
