Are Your Cyber Security Walls Future Proof?

Presented by: Brian Odian, CISM, CRISC, PMP, QSA, CDPSE, ISO27001 IA, Director – APAC Consulting Advisory Services, VikingCloud

The cyber landscape is always evolving. Greater threats are coming through advancements such as IoT, AI and Quantum Computing. While these advancements are positive, they can come at a cost to cybersecurity. With an ever-increasing surface area for cyber criminals to attack, enterprises need to shift their mindset away from 100% protection, all the time. Organizations who haven’t already done so need to shift from “protection” to “detection and response” because depending on tall security walls to protect your environment isn’t going to cut it anymore.
