Synopsis and overview of the session

Over the holidays, local governments have quickly responded to mitigate the risk of rising clusters, and to contain a new COVID-19 strain from spreading.

In the cybersecurity landscape, new phishing variations are emerging daily to evade security perimeters, and they can remain undetected for months. Security teams spend up to 80% of their time analyzing 25% of phishing threats leaving a significant portion of emails unassessed, driving up operational costs, and exposing companies to new risks. On the other hand, many organizations may not have the budget, expertise, or task force required to monitor evolving threat tactics designed to exploit human errors, vulnerabilities on legacy systems, and out-dated workflows.

How can organizations reduce dwell time and stop a phishing attack in minutes with limited resources?

Focus Network, in partnership with Cofense, will bring leading IT Security professionals across different industries to share the insights and strategies on strengthening the cybersecurity posture in 2021. The topics for discussion include:

  • The latest phishing trends and tactics evading SEGs delivering credential phish and malware to users
  • Finding cybersecurity talent – the domino effect of COVID on the industry’s talent pool
  • Catching a phish in murky waters – gain visibility to unknown phishing threats
  • Frameworks to reduce the burden on SOC teams through automated quarantine and response workflows
  • Capex vs. Opex: The secret of success through both models

Ryan Jones, Director Asia Pacific, Cofense

Ryan Jones is a phishing defence leader at Cofense who works with Enterprise and Government across Asia Pacific to solve the challenge organisations face with post-gateway Phishing Detection and Response (PDR).

Ryan believes that the best defence against malicious emails is the combination of people and technology. By adding a human layer of intuition and context, it increases the detection of malicious emails in a way that technology alone cannot replicate or recognise.

Ryan has 15 years of experience working in Cyber Security and technology. Prior to joining Cofense he held senior technical roles at Check Point and Mimecast where he implemented cyber defence strategies to protect against a wide range of malicious attack vectors for some of APAC’s largest organisations.
