Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) is the life-blood of today’s app-driven world. From banks, retail and transportation to IoT, autonomous vehicles and smart cities, APIs are a critical part of modern mobile, SaaS and web applications and can be found in customer-facing, partner-facing and internal applications. By nature, APIs expose application logic and sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and because of this have increasingly become a target for attackers. Without secure APIs, rapid innovation would be impossible. API Security focuses on strategies and solutions to understand and mitigate the unique vulnerabilities and security risks of APIs.
Traditionally IT and OT systems were managed by separate teams with little or no interaction. Today, with automation and the need to collect, share and process data - interconnectivity between IT and OT has widened the attack surface for malicious actors. This session will focus on developments and initiatives aimed at addressing skill and competency requirements to successfully mitigate these threats.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the (ISC)² Singapore Chapter is hosting a series of events and activities over the course of the year. This session will share updates on the chapter’s developments and planned events that aim to advance members’ knowledge exchange and closer collaboration with industry peers for professional development.Learning Objectives:
Gain a stronger understanding of the NIST guidance "Ransomware Risk Management: A Cybersecurity Framework Profile". This session will outline how to use the framework to help manage risk and access your organisation's preparedness to mitigate ransomware events.
With the wide-spread attacks and newly discovered security vulnerabilities, businesses around the world have increased their spending on advanced information security technologies to strengthen their in-house security infrastructures. Cybersecurity experts will share insights into today’s cyberattack trends and analyze the associated impacts and discuss how to prepare for, respond to and recover from the increased cyberattacks.Learning Objective:
Technology has long been an extension of human cognition. Our daily lives are intertwined with connectivity to a wealth of information for decision support. Risk sensing has evolved in this direction as well. Artificial intelligence is applied in information distillation to aid risk analysts in handling a large volume of rapidly changing information. This session will look at a platform created for cognitive risk sensing that processes global news streams near real-time by distilling and correlating topics to target entities (i.e., third parties of an organization), automatically triggering alerts and creating event timelines for analysts.
The worldwide adoption and use of cloud computing, has been increasing rapidly. As Cybersecurity threats grow, the need for maintaining an effective security posture for workloads on the cloud is crucial. In this session, you’ll learn from one of the leading cloud providers and end-users on how to protect critical data from the latest threats and how to respond to them, based on their analyses and experience.
|In this era of remote work, multi-cloud adoption, and digital acceleration, where "location independence” and "anywhere operations” is a common trend, organisations need a modern architectural approach that reduces complexity, simplifies operations, and increases the effectiveness of security defenses.|
