Manila, Philippines – With fake news, data breaching, phishing, ransomware, cryptojacking, and AI-driven threats getting out of hand, there is an increasing need to discuss cybersecurity.
Cyber threats and the spread of false information nowadays are getting more rampant. With the Philippines being one of the heaviest internet users worldwide according to CNN Philippines, cyberattacks are prone to happen, even to the smallest of websites; attacking and infiltrating the integrity and credibility of the website that provides its services to its clients.
“First and foremost, it’s actually the way our people, our employees, should understand how critical our data is. It’s mainly on how the entire population of the company understands what cybersecurity is,” said Mr. Fredelito Ferrer, Chief Information Officer of Cocolife on the importance of cybersecurity.
This pushed Jeffrey Teh, founder of Teh Group, and the lead organizer of Cyber Attack, formerly known as CIFI Security Summit, to host their annual professional conference in the Philippines, to bring senior leaders from government agencies and multinational companies in the Asia Pacific together for a day of networking, collaboration, knowledge transfer through peer-led keynotes, breakouts, panels, and networking sessions.
Cyber Attack Manila is a two-day event that will be held in Makati Shangri-La Hotel, on Thursday, August 29, 2019. PLDT VITRO Makati, for the SOC Tour, and Berjaya Makati Hotel for the LMNTRIX Workshop, will both be on Friday, August 30, 2019.
One of the organizations partnered with Cyber Attack Manila is Ambidextr, a content marketing and events management company focused on serving tech companies in Asia Pacific.
“Digital transformation begins with digital security. Individuals and enterprises alike cannot fully experience the benefits of digital until we commit to protecting this sphere for all. That’s why it’s imperative we gather the best talent in the industry to discuss these pressing challenges,” said Kyle Nate, the head of partnerships at Ambidextr.
There will also be panel discussions about analyzing the latest trends in cyberattacks and responding to growing threats, and LMNTRIX Workshops led by LMNTRIX Founder, Mr. Carlo Minassian.
LMNTRIX is a cybersecurity company that considers themselves as cyber bodyguards. Their main goal is to keep your domain safe and secure while saving money while you do it.
Another notable workshop that would take place is the CrowdStrike Threat Hunting Workshop, which would be led by Crowdstrike Asia’s Solution Engineering Manager, Mr. Valerian Rossigneux.
CrowdStrike is the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection. The company has established offices and headcount in key markets including Singapore, New Zealand, India, and Northern Asia.
Cyber Attack will consist of Product Demos ranging from Unsupervised Machine Learning: A New Approach to Cyber Defense and to the Diversity of Magnet AXIOM for Insider Threats or Incidence Response.
