Synopsis and overview of the session

The high levels of online connectivity in Asia and the increase of digital growth can bring benefits for both the public and private sectors. It also expands the threat landscape and makes securing a nation’s digital infrastructure more critical and difficult than ever.

The frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks are on the rise as more adversaries take an all-of-nation approach, while organizations are expected to defend on their own. At this roundtable, CTO Michael Ehrlich will discuss how a Collective Defense approach can provide companies, sectors and even entire nations with a more effective defense against these massive, coordinated cyber-attacks.

Discuss how leveraging AI and machine learning-based behavioral analytics can give your organization the edge to detect unknown threats that signature-based tools miss, and why sharing those threats in a secure ecosystem, at network speed, creates a new approach to cybersecurity that acts as a force multiplier for everyone involved.

Focus Network, in partnership with IronNet Cybersecurity, will be bringing leading IT security executives to discuss

  • The global cyber threat landscape with special focus on Singapore and Malaysia
  • How malicious attacks can avoid detection and slip through some enterprise cyber defense technologies and systems
  • How organizations can stop the most sophisticated cyber threats with an advanced NDR platform
  • What does collaboration mean for Southeast Asian nations
  • How can governments, businesses across industries come together to share behaviors and insights into cyber attacks in the ecosystem
  • What each organization can do/contribute to keep the whole ecosystem cyber secure
