“With dynamic and fast-developing economies that are poised to lead global growth, Asia is characterized by its accelerating connectivity and innovative use of technology, making it a prime target for cyber-attacks. Increasingly, cybersecurity conversations are not just for CIOs, CISOs and IT managers. The rest of the C-suite, government officials and citizens need to come together to strengthen APJ’s cybersecurity posture,” said Linda Gray Martin, Director & General Manager, RSA Conference.
“The keynote speaker line-up we’ve assembled will bring deep insights and expertise on regulation and privacy, as well as emerging security topics around artificial intelligence and critical national infrastructure, among others. We are honored and excited to have the brightest minds in cybersecurity join us for three days of knowledge-sharing, learning and engaging discussions to inspire the region to take effective action.”
