GovWare 2021

Disruptions have taken centre stage as key factors in just about every facet of the human condition. In technology, healthcare, communications, travel, even social norms and modes of behaviour, the recent past has seen unprecedented pace and impact of change in our lives. Growing and adapting to meet the emerging challenges, and identifying developing opportunities, are key to establishing resilient and successful communities of the future.

With the support of the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) and community partners across the region, GovWare Conference promises a stellar line-up of programmes as we address this year’s theme “Living with COVID-19 – Reimagining Digital Security Risks and Opportunities”.

Our CSO and Co-Founder, Dr Shimrit Tzur-David will present a session on October 5th:

Anticipating the Next Game Changer Cybersecurity Event Post-COVID-19

One of the many lessons COVID-19 has taught us is to always prepare for the unexpected. By instantly making remote work the new standard, the pandemic created countless cybersecurity challenges threatening corporate assets and employees. Attackers have exploited this through two vectors in particular – inadequate authentication procedures and unsecured off-domain networks, the former being the leading cause for data breaches globally.

These clear and present dangers forced companies to quickly revamp their cybersecurity posture and adopt new tools and practices. But given the accelerating changes in technology and work, one must ask – is that too little too late? Responsible organizations should now more than ever look ahead and consider future threats that might become a reality overnight, such as the collapse of standard encryption algorithms and the emerging power of quantum computing. This session will examine some of these upcoming threats and discuss essential preventative measures and solutions.
