Discover best practices from some of the region's

leading practitioners

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced organizations to quickly focus on 3 priorities:

  1. Expand Cloud Services and Optimize IT costs

  2. Support and secure a remote workforce

  3. Ensure business and cyber-risk resiliency

Gartner forecasts that end-user spending on public cloud services will reach $396 billion in 2021 and grow by 21.7% to $482 billion in 2022 (Source: Gartner November 2020).

As a result, the importance of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is increasing than ever in light of accelerated spending and investments into public and commercial clouds services.

Along with it, the awareness of cyber issues, in addition to enterprise risks and social engineering challenges, is increasing among government agencies, the board level, and ordinary citizens.

Join us for Cyber Fortify Singapore to learn more about the best practices and cutting-edge methodologies to plan, pro-act, and manage cyber risks that will help you safeguard your company's assets and business resiliency.

PROGRAMME

2:30 - 2:40 PM

Welcome and Introduction

2:40 - 3:00 PM

Keynote: Time For A Better Risk-Based Approach!

The standard ISO risk management model is useful, but it is just a basic process model.

On its own, it is not the robust integrated system of risk management that organizations need to address the risks they now face. With Cyber risk, in particular, the threat is driven by an intelligent active opponent, who is trying to actively evade and circumvent measures put in place to protect systems. This complex problem demands a better approach.

This session will outline a scenario-based methodology that has been developed as a collaboration between Thinking Dimensions and RiskCovered.

 

This methodology provides a robust "Golden Thread" approach to link strategy, risk, behaviors, and tactics together in an integrated system of risk management.

Are We Getting More Secure?

Security efforts are seen as expensive — causing to slow the business or even seen as a blocker, rather than enable and secure the business. Is there a more strategic approach? 

In this session, we will look into a model that is aligned with industry-accepted good practices, operationalizes your information security strategy and eventually cause to normalize your business risks.

Through this approach, the security leadership delivers a clear image of the necessary resources and needed security capabilities overarching people, process, and technology.

Use The Collective Thinking Of Your Workforce
To Build Resilient Cyber Practices

One of the biggest challenges for C-Suite Management is the lack of support and commitment for any cybersecurity initiative. 

 

The buy-in should be from all employees and one of the few ways to achieve this would be to create some kind of “ownership” for every employee in the initiative.

 

This ownership requirement is met through an organic bottom-up risks heatmap based on agreed predetermined criteria. Focus is provided by the executive team and from these focus areas the action teams will go into a deeper analysis.

 

Five criteria are measured from the employee’s perspective and the collective answer from their own evaluation will produce certain fortification factors that need to be addressed to create a meaningful resiliency build.

 

The result of various heatmaps from various critical areas will represent an objective 20/80 action orientated approach, prioritizing the 20% of vulnerabilities that would produce 80/90% of effective resiliency actions.
