Building a Secure Cyber World, Aug 7-8, Makati Shangri-La, Manila, Philippines


Enterprises today face rapidly changing threats as never before. From combating viruses aimed at extorting money from individuals like the FBI virus to more sophisticated viruses like Stuxnet targeting infrastructure to perceived espionage-related efforts in Flame and Red October, the task of the cyber security professional to protect an organization’s information assets is more critical than ever. An increasingly sophisticated threat landscape coupled with the advancement of technology and connectivity requires security professionals to constantly keep abreast of latest trends and strategies to secure their organization’s infrastructure with orchestrated efforts.
