Why Hackers are Targeting and Succeeding in India and the Asia Pacific

Presented by

Amar Singh, Ben Verschaeren

About this talk

Interesting new research reveals that organisations in India and APJ face a series of cybersecurity shortcomings in the areas of education, company culture, skills, budgeting and operational management. The attackers are attracted to the "low hanging fruit" and green pastures as companies in India and the region are only just coming to terms with the negative impact of being insecure and not ready for cyber-attacks. Join Amar Singh & Ben Verschaeren as they discuss why overcoming these challenges won’t be easy and the opportunities available to strengthen these areas in addition to the hardening of the technology platforms and tools used. Ben, based in Australia, is Sophos' Global Solutions Engineer and threat researcher. Ben is responsible for researching the threat landscape and educating the Sophos team, customers and partners on the latest threats. This includes building demonstration and training tools, focusing on real world exploits and malware. Amar is based in London, UK and is a globally recognised cyber and privacy specialist and a practising CISO. Amar and his firm Cyber Management Alliance Ltd are trusted advisors in cybersecurity and privacy to global organisations and mentor CISO and C-Level executives on cyber resilience and data-privacy.
