Accelerating anti-ransomware strategies for protecting mission-critical applications, services, and infrastructure

Technology has continued its rapid and transformative march, revolutionising various aspects of our lives.  

However, amidst these marvels, concerns about data privacy, cybersecurity, and ethical implications have also escalated, underscoring the need for responsible innovation.  

Criminal activities have continued to escalate in the first half of the year, with an 8% surge in global weekly cyberattacks in the second quarter marking the highest volume in two years.   

Technology leaders are now discussing how cybersecurity is a technical necessity, a business enabler, and a strategic opportunity to further their long-term goals of the organisation’s growth. 

Singapore is a global leader in cybersecurity, and the government has made significant investments in cybersecurity infrastructure and initiatives.  

Singapore’s cybersecurity landscape is characterised by a proactive and resilient approach to safeguarding its digital infrastructure and data ecosystem. As a global financial and technological hub, the city-state recognises the critical importance of cybersecurity in maintaining its reputation as a safe and secure destination for businesses and individuals alike. 

In Singapore, phishing and ransomware remain persistent threats to both organisations and individuals, although there has been a decrease in the number of infected infrastructures. 

The Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) received about 8,500 reports of phishing attempts last year, an increase of 175 percent from the 3,100 attempts reported in 2021. 

Operational Technology (OT) attacks are increasingly becoming a huge security concern. 

In light of these developments, how can organisations safeguard themselves? What strategies and robust measures should they adopt to be cyber resilient and protect their mission-critical applications, services, and infrastructure? 

The Future of Cloud Security: Automated and Unified Protection 

As Singapore continues to evolve into a smart nation, safeguarding sensitive government data and critical infrastructure becomes paramount. This forward-looking approach offers automated and unified cloud security solutions that efficiently detect, prevent and mitigate complex cyber threats across various cloud platforms, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of vital government information.  

By adopting such advanced security measures, Singapore can bolster its cybersecurity resilience, protect national interests, maintain public trust, and stay at the forefront of technological innovation while mitigating evolving cyber risks and challenges in an increasingly digital landscape. 

Empowering Singapore Organisations with Simple and Secured Unified Security: The Future of Modern Workforces 

In the evolving landscape where remote work and digital connectivity have become indispensable, Singapore organisations must adapt to this new paradigm while ensuring robust cybersecurity.  

Organisations need the highest level of security for remote users and address the challenges posed by an expanding attack surface and sophisticated threat actors.  

For Singapore organisations, this means safeguarding critical data, ensuring Zero-Trust Access to corporate applications, and simplifying security management in an era where simplicity and robust protection are paramount. 

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to our exclusive OpenGov Breakfast Insight aimed at imparting knowledge on how to adopt an active threat prevention approach, enabling organisations to block attacks before they can cause damage to their systems. With the increase in the sophistication of attacks, volume, and speed, relying on detection-only technology and human remediation can be disastrous.  

For security teams to react in real-time to prevent cyberattacks and minimise the damage to their organisation; a single view of the entire environment is needed to improve visibility and control. Only a centrally managed security infrastructure eliminates visibility silos and helps improve defenses. During this session, case studies and strategies will be presented to demonstrate how to enforce threat prevention and optimise your security footprint. 

This session serves as a great peer-to-peer learning platform to gain insights and practical solutions to empower security teams to react in real-time to prevent cyberattacks and fortify the cyber resilience of their organisations. 

We will be discussing:

  • Unified Cloud Security: Emphasising the importance of adopting advanced cloud-native security solutions for safeguarding critical data and workloads against sophisticated cyber threats in an increasingly digital landscape 
  • Comprehensive and Unified Cybersecurity Measures: Discussing the value of unified security for multi-cloud environments, which offers centralised visibility, automated security posture management, and real-time protection for workloads and applications 
  • AI-Powered Threat Detection: Highlighting the role of AI-powered threat detection in ensuring comprehensive security throughout dynamic application development cycles 
  • Active Threat Prevention: Adopting an active threat prevention approach to block attacks before they can cause damage to the systems, emphasising the need for real-time responses and centralised security management 
  • Zero-Trust Access: Ensuring Zero-Trust access and how it can be implemented to ensure secure access to corporate applications, especially in the context of remote work and digital connectivity 
  • Importance of Centralised Management: Emphasising the significance of centrally managed security infrastructure in improving visibility and control over an organisation’s cybersecurity defences, helping to eliminate visibility silos
