Cyber Resiliency - The New Cyber Security Paradigm

The 18th Info-Security Conference 2017 is returning in Jun 2017 following its past encouraging responses. The Info-Security Conference, one of the leading information security events in the region, has become a major highlight under the 21st Info-Security Project which is a large-scale educational project focusing on the promotion of the latest information and network security concerns to enterprises in Hong Kong.
 
Info-Security Conference, the largest annual gathering of risk and security practitioners in Hong Kong, attempts to offer a candid view of the state of IT security. It offers a platform to share, debate and identify solutions and strategies that are working, the conference attracts over 800 professionals each year. It brings together vendors, C-level practitioners, analysts and forward thinkers to discuss what worked, what did not, and tactics you can use to reach your business goals without succumbing to your own cyber fears.
 
In today's connected environment, your operations are always at risk from cyber attacks. Worse, the cost of one has also increased. How cyber security has evolved and changed, which is important to be rethought in the Internet and mobile era.
 

This year, the 18th Conference 2017, entitled “Cyber Resiliency - The New Cyber Security Paradigm” is becoming a key concern among organisational leadership, including boards of directors.
