CYBERSECURITY: Safeguarding Digital Spaces
Time & Location
About the Event
Synopsis 2020 was an unparalleled year in cybersecurity, marked by the degree to which destructive attacks had been made to governments, organizations, and the day-to-day life of individuals. Leading Philippine Technology Media and Telecommunications Law Firm Gorriceta Africa Cauton & Saavedra partners with Premiere Philippine IT Security Group, Red Rock Security, to underscore pressing needs for safeguarding digital assets amidst the global pandemic and in the face of reactive measures of governments and businesses around the world. In this webinar, we will teach you how individuals and organizations can protect themselves from disruption, data compromise, reputational harm, and financial losses — all caused by threat agents who exploit internetwork vulnerabilities. Current State of Cybersecurity in the Philippines The cybersecurity threat landscape is rapidly changing and evolving as new technologies are developed, cyberattacks and tools become more sophisticated, and attack patterns become more dynamic and multi-vectored. Philippine cybersecurity laws are relatively immature. Society and government suffer from a lack of awareness about the need for cybersecurity. The speed at which laws and regulations are developed, along with their true responsiveness to the times, all remain principal challenges for stakeholders immersed in cyberspace. Only through effective public and private sharing of threat intelligence, collaboration in the development of security policies, and creation of a cyber-resilient framework can there be true sustainable and impactful change.
