Tech pioneers gather at #WCSSASEAN

The 12th global edition of the World Cyber Security Summit – ASEAN will virtually gather over 350 attendees to discuss the future adoption of cyber security solutions, new-age technologies to protect businesses from cyberattacks, and how South East Asia’s tech infrastructure will be boosted into the new baseline. 

Notable speakers include Dato’ Dr Haji Amirudin bin Abdul Wahab, Harish Sekar, Francel Margareth Taborlupa, Dr. Soontorn Sirapaisan, Zane Lim, Col Joey T Fontiveros SC, Yaron Slutzky, Frankie Shuai Director, Virag Thakkar, Leonardo Hutabarat & more.

Wednesday, 30 March 2022: Taking place virtually on 12 April 2022, the 12th global edition of World Cyber Security Summit – ASEAN will focus on topics such as: 

  • Government’s Approach to Cyber Security: Safe National Cyber Space;
  • Cyber Security and Data Protection for Banking and Financial Institutions; 
  • HMI/SCADA Dangers and Cyber Security Strategies; 
  • Automated Hacking, Deepfakes and Other Cyber Threats of 2022; 
  • Real-Life Use Cases on How to Combat Cyber-Attacks, and much more.

The core objective of the event is to incorporate cyber security in ASEAN enterprises to protect the fastest growing digital economies in ASEAN member countries in the next 10 years. The cyber security plan by ASEAN Member States is crucial to ensuring the integrity of their digital economies. With the implementation of cyber security measures, the digital economy in ASEAN member countries will be able to grow further.

Rising cyber threats and a lack of cyber security leadership are the biggest challenges facing the development of digital economies in ASEAN. With digital economies rapidly growing in ASEAN, the need for cyber security leaders who can implement the best cyber security practices across the region is more pressing than ever.

The surge is causing governments to support sectors such as Telecommunications, Finance, E-commerce, BFSI, Healthcare, Retail, FMCG, Logistics and many more at the World Cyber Security Summit – ASEAN, which will help boost demand for enterprise cyber security products, services, and consumer software in the country.

What next for the continent?

Enterprises and governments are stepping up strengthening internet infrastructure and improving the solutions and assistance provided by the software industry in order to protect their citizens from future cyber-attacks.

Apart from that, factors such as the need for unified cyber solutions, increased internet subscriptions, data disclosure mandates, enhanced enterprise mobility, and increased spending patterns on security forums are fueling the nation’s demand for cyber security solutions.

“The economic well-being of ASEAN nations is becoming increasingly dependent on the digital realm. Governments can protect their economies and citizens by implementing appropriate digital security protocols”, stated Mithun Shetty, CEO, Trescon.
