IT, Security, and Information leaders in ASEAN are invited to join this virtual roundtable on ‘Cultivating a security-centric culture driven by technology’.

An expert moderator will guide the knowledge-sharing event, stimulating discussion between participants in a closed, confidential environment. Attendance is by invitation only and complimentary. Registration is limited to a select number of guests per event.


Cultivating a security-centric culture driven by technology

In today’s increasingly digital business environment, technology has become critical in every aspect of an organisation. Subsequently, a culture centred on security is paramount to finding prolonged success. Customer expectations of reliability and privacy are growing, so meeting security goals throughout the end-to-end journey is crucial. 

As threats emerge and evolve, technology is keeping pace in its ability to mitigate these new risks. Organisations must also do their part in executing smart adoption and implementation as technology is not an instant remedy. Proper data management and asset protection start with a security-centric culture present throughout all functions. 

  • How are companies approaching cybersecurity in today’s business landscape? What are the challenges?
  • How does an organisation build skills and foster a security-centric and security-first culture?
  • What does the future of cybersecurity look like? How can organisations future-proof their infrastructure?
