Next-Generation Cybersecurity in the Age of Ransomware – How Prepared Are You for Unexpected Threats?

A Platform For Collaboration

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

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.  

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 organisation’s growth.

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.  

According to a report from the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), the Philippines ranked fourth among countries with the highest incidents of cyberattacks. 

The DICT also mentioned about 3,000 cyberattacks were monitored in the country from 2020 to 2022 alone. Almost half of them are targeted against the systems and networks of the government. 

The Cybercrime Investigation and Coordinating Center (CICC) has also reported a sharp rise in cybercrime in Manila, with a staggering 152 percent increase in the first half of 2023 compared to the same period last year.  

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? 

Adopting a Prevention-first Approach: Focusing on the 3Cs (Comprehensive, Consolidated, and Collaborative)  

The threat of multiple attack vectors looms large, and hackers are shifting their focus from individuals to organisations as they attempt to cause maximum disruption. With such a complex threat landscape, ensuring your organisation has the best security measures in place should be a priority. 

Adpoting technologies that combine big data threat intelligence and advanced AI technologies will provide accurate prevention, and prevent advanced threats across your entire network, endpoints, cloud environment, email, and IoT devices before they happen. 

Strengthening Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Capabilities: Proactive Threat Prevention and Multi-Layered Security Architecture 

Strengthening cybersecurity infrastructure and capabilities is paramount in today’s digital landscape. With cutting-edge technology, organisations can proactively prevent threats and fortify their defenses through a multi-layered security architecture.  

Proactive threat prevention mechanisms, powered by real-time threat intelligence, enable organisations to identify and neutralise emerging threats before they can inflict damage. Additionally, the comprehensive suite of security solutions, including firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and advanced threat protection, forms a multi-layered security architecture that creates robust barriers against cyberattacks.  

By harnessing these technologies, organisations can ensure the resilience and integrity of their cybersecurity infrastructure, fostering a safer digital environment in an interconnected world. 

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:

  • Improving national cybersecurity and acceleration of cross-layered threat detection and response as a critical component  
  • Enhancing AI-powered cybersecurity systems excelling at identifying anomalies and detecting previously unseen attack patterns, thereby mitigating potential risks before they escalate 
  • Implementing an end-to-end cybersecurity portfolio to control and manage the networks, critical infrastructure, and sensitive data 
  • Preventing security risks emanating from ChatGPT and other generative AI tools
  • Recommendations designed to help you prevent, detect, respond to, and recover from ransomware so that you can minimise the impact and resume business operations 
  • Improving threat detection and sharing threat information 
  • Securing and monitoring workloads in the cloud 
  • Closing the gap between the government’s mandate to secure, defend, and monitor its broad digital footprint and the disparate technologies currently in place
