Connecting minds and building global trust and resilience in cybersecurity and innovation

CISOs, CTOs, CIOs, technology, risk and governance practitioners and leaders from across the APAC and Oceania region and beyond met in Singapore to benchmark progress and approaches to cybersecurity challenges.

Designed to benchmark current understanding, approaches, challenges and opportunities in cybersecurity and digital innovation, CISO 360 is an authentic international think tank that aims to forge trusted, lasting professional connections for all participants – delegates, speakers and sponsors. The programme provides critical updates on the emerging opportunity and risk horizon, role expectations and business technologies within the years to come.

Collaboration and building bridges in the cybersecurity field is more important than ever – trusted partnerships and connections are vital, within supply chains, stakeholders and with customers. This agenda will focused on key cybersecurity challenges – including questions around AI, machine learning, automation, cloud, mobility and security.

  • As technological advances continue to outpace operations, legal and policy, how can we build trust in technology while remaining accessible? How do we translate trust, sharing and collaboration into technological terms?
  • How can we ever strike a balance between attackers and defenders as our surface areas keep expanding?
  • How can we take leverage the business opportunities of data explosion, analytics and threat intelligence?
  • What is the right level of prescriptive law, regulation and standards for cyber risk?
  • With so many technology providers, how do we make supplier choices? What is our ‘plan b’?
