Cyber Wars – The Enterprise Strikes Back

  • Written by Frost & Sullivan

A Frost & Sullivan Executive MindXchange on Building Cyber Resilient Enterprises

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach[1] - 10 December 2018 - Cyber threats hugely affect the operation of a business; its costs and impact are substantial. The convergence and interdependency of technology make guaranteed protection impossible. Most frequently, cyber risks are caused by human behavior rather than system flaws or technological weaknesses. Organizations need to work with their internal stakeholders to promote awareness and understanding to minimize cyber risks by building cyber resilience.

Cyber Wars – The Enterprise Strikes Back

L-R: Kenny Yeo, Dr Leong Chou Ching, Steven Sim Kok Leong, K. K. Lim, Raymond Teo

Recently, Frost & Sullivan held an Executive MindXchange briefing titled Cyber Wars -- The Enterprise Strikes Back at the Westin Singapore. Together with technology partners NTT Communications and NTT Security, the briefing presented the latest trends and updates on why and how organizations should and can make their workplaces cyber resilient.

According to Kenny Yeo, Industry Principal, Frost & Sullivan, "Humans remain the weakest security link. 91% of cyberattacks still start with a phishing mail and a lack of training in both people and process among enterprises can result in loss of brand trust, putting organizations and consumers at risk."

"It is critical to embrace a holistic 'people, process and technology' approach to cyber security. Traditionally, many organizations establish a 'Prevent', 'Detect' and 'Remediate' approach. Organizations need to use data and extend this paradigm further to gain 'Predict' and 'Measure' outcomes as well," Kenny added.

This was followed by a presentation by Raymond Teo, Senior Vice President, Business Development, APAC, NTT Security on Managing Cyber Risk in the Boardroom.

"Cyber breaches impact trust in organizations and this is a Board issue. Organizations need to equip their Board with the requisite knowledge so the Board can competently exercise its oversight function and appraise the adequacy and eff­ectiveness of their overall cyber resilience program and make informed decisions," said Raymond. "Deploying good risk management processes can mitigate threats against the digital assets of a company."

This was followed by a panel discussion on Cyber Ready Business - Lessons Learnt & Case Studies. Panelists for this session included Dr Leong Chou Ching, General Manager, IT of MindChamps, Steven Sim Kok Leong, Vice President of ISACA Singapore Chapter, K. K. Lim, Advocate & Solicitor for Lex Advocatus and Raymond Teo, Senior Vice President, Business Development, APAC for NTT Security.
