Cyber Intelligence Asia 2018 Is Happening This Week

March 19, 2018

One of Southeast Asia’s more low-key cybersecurity conferences starts on Tuesday. The sixth installment of Cyber Intelligence Asia will be held at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront in Singapore and takes place from March 20 until 22. The three-day event organized by Intelligence-Sec brings together a day-long workshop and a simultaneous conference and exhibition.

This year’s Cyber Intelligence Asia features regional speakers discussing their insights to a professional audience. The conference series is known for having participants across government and the private sector, including members of the armed forces and law enforcement agencies. 21st Century Asian Arms Race (21AAR) is a media partner for Cyber Intelligence Asia 2018.

Two heavy hitters in cybersecurity will be sponsoring this year’s conference. These are RiskIQ and Sepio Systems. Both organizations are furnishing speakers for talks during the course of the event. There are also VIPs from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand who are going to discuss the finer points of their work as cybersecurity practitioners and researchers. In light of recent events, Cyber Intelligence Asia 2018 has a strong focus on criminal activities in the web and how to mitigate the risks posed by these actors. Those who are attending the event can expect abundant networking opportunities.

From the organizer:

Cybercrimes are on an increase with many banks, governments, utilities and transportation agencies/departments being targeted. Singapore is a region hub for oil and gas firms and banks and protecting their infrastructure is key to creating their strong economy. Cybercrimes are constantly becoming an everyday occurrence and the attacks are also sophisticated and unknown causing governments to make sure their cyber defence systems are updated regularly.

Cyber Intelligence Asia will provide you the opportunity to meet with leading cyber security experts from across Asia-Pacific in one place. You will also have the opportunity to network with senior Singapore government and military officials who set their cyber security strategies and plans.
