Regional Keynote: The Future of Cyber Security From a Friendly Hacker’s Perspective

Presented by: Keren Elazari, Cyber Security Analyst, Author, and Senior Researcher, Tel Aviv University Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center

Cybersecurity is no longer about protecting secrets. It's about protecting our way of life that relies on digital technology, everywhere : from clouds to smartphones, from sensors to webcams, to stock markets and much more. In 2021, we learned that cyber criminals are innovating faster than ever before. In this environment, are you ready for what's next? This talk will inspire security pros and techies to adapt and evolve, and act on what matters most. We will shed light on emerging security threats, new attack vectors and techniques; discover how our digital universe expanded and how we can empower a virtual workforce to build a digital immune system. Join this talk for a look at the future of cybersecurity and to learn how resilience can be achieved with adaptability and innovation – and surprisingly, by learning from hackers.

The Future of Cybersecurity from Hackers' Perspective: "Think Bad. Do Good." A Threat-driven Defense Approach to Cloud Security

Presented by: Pak Ho Chan, Group Assessment & Assurance Lead, Thales Transport & Security (Hong Kong) Ltd. and Nicole Wong, CISSP, CISA, GXPN, GPEN, GDAT, PCI QSA, Principal Consultant, Thales Transport & Security (Hong Kong) Ltd.

In recent years, the layer of defense approach has been adopted in various corporations. However, cyberattacks still occur as a result of data breaches and critical infrastructure intrusion. Due to the pandemic crisis, more and more organizations accelerated the Cloud adoption plan to increase corporations' capacities without investing in hardware and physical facilities. Nevertheless, most organizations still use the same approach as traditional on-premise infrastructure to implement security controls on the Cloud. This session will provide attendees with an overview of the trend and modern technologies that could compromise various Cloud services and infrastructure. Additionally, illustrate how to utilize PCI DSS as a foundation to define what to do for implementing a threat-driven approach on the Cloud, which can eventually identify and fix the weaknesses as well as detect the attacks for securing the services and resources in your cloud environment from cyber-attacks.
