OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to our exclusive OpenGovLive! Virtual Insight aimed at imparting knowledge on how the SOC team
is always powered on and prepared to outsmart, withstand, and remediate against cyberthreats.
It is a known fact that the telecommunication industry frequently struggles with data breaches and other cybersecurity threats. With telecommunication companies having large customer data, it attracts complex and sophisticated cyberattacks to gain unauthorised access to their data. Mobile devices, for instance, provide a huge area of vulnerability, as do home routers and unsecure mobile apps.
It is also problematic that personal information often gets passed between multiple parties and organisations, some of which may have insufficient security practices.
If an attack were to occur on a major telecom provider infrastructure, the consequences would be far-reaching, and could potentially impact a whole country, with businesses, consumers and government agencies likely affected. Such an attack would have major ramifications for the telecom brand’s reputation and trust worthiness.
In the concrete, according to a recent report , the telecommunications industry is ranked among the worst in relation to responding to Domain Name System (DNS) attacks. 43% of the telecommunication organisations suffered from DNS-based malware in 2018, and the average time from discovery to containment took three days or more for 81% of the affected organisations.
Security Operation Centre (SOC) must be designed to embrace adaptive security features to become context-aware and intelligence-driven.
Since the current state of threat intelligence is not entirely understood, organisation tend to ignore the value of threat intelligence, especially of tailored threat intelligence specific to an organisation IT environment.
Thus, it is of great importance that organisations start leveraging threat intelligence in a far more robust manner to be able to PREDICT the next level of attacks, including Dark Web Monitoring & reporting capabilities.

This was an excellent region-based discussion at the right time. New threats are being discovered. Timing and the duration was just right. Thanks, OpenGov Asia team!
OpenGovLive! session was very insightful and having the open conversations was great
This event is great, provided good security information to me for further action to combat cybersecurity incident!
