Workshop on Cybersecurity and Cybercrime
29 November 2017 – from 8am to 12noon
Makati Shangri-la Hotel, Manila B Function Room

Cyberthreats continue to grow in both scope and severity. The number of recurring high profile security breaches continue to grow. There are several implications for cyber security leaders:

  • The digital footprint of businesses and individuals continues to expand dramatically; nearly every device is a target and virtually everything can be used to instigate a cyberattack. Threats are becoming more intelligent and attacks are increasingly automated, making them extremely difficult to detect.
  • Given this situation, the Central Bank recently tightened its rules to guard against cybercrime and related risks amid growing concerns on the fast-evolving cyber threats.

It is in this context, we are offering a Workshop on Cybersecurity and Cybercrime.

Essentially, the workshop is serving as an introductory course as well as a refresher course on the current and emerging legal, regulatory and technological landscape on digital protection and the remedies for breaches and hacks. This module serves as prerequisite for next level intermediate and advance training programs.

Target audience
Board members, CEO, COO, CTO, CIO, other C-level executives, IT Managers, technology providers and practitioners, compliance officers, finance / audit officers
