Highlight:
This is the largest EA forum in Hong Kong organised by Hong Kong Computer Society Enterprise Architecture Specialist Group (HKCS EASG). Having come to the 8th year, we are going to deliver it as a virtual live event with the theme “Architecture Evolution in the Digital Age”. Experience sharing and case studies on the IT architecture evolution, due to the digital transformation with emerging technologies (such as Micro-services, DevOps, Containers, Data Analytics, IoT, 5G and AI etc), would be our major focuses. As such, several seasoned IT leaders from various large enterprises will discuss their viewpoints and share real-life scenarios of adopting these emerging technologies in the digital era with us. We will also cover the best practices, the challenges and lessons learnt they encountered in their experiences. Simply put, it will definitely be a valuable opportunity for us to network with these speakers and other IT architects as to exchange knowledge and share our experiences.

Supporting Event: The 13th CIO Executive Virtual Summit 2020 (25-26 Nov 2020)

Date: 25-26 Nov 2020 (Wed-Thur)
Time: 8:45am – 1:15pm
Venue: Virtual Environment
Language: English
Register: https://form.mig-events.com/cio2020/

Highlight:
Even as companies grapple with the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is already clear that CIOs are playing a central role in navigating the crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a human tragedy, and technology is on the front lines of this crisis. Many of the changes reshaping how we work and live – from employees working remotely to consumers shifting their shopping online – rely on technology. And because technology ties so much of every company together, CIOs have a unique view into what’s really going on and how to manage it. The most successful organizations take risks in “the turns”, those places in the enterprise journey where others slow down.

Carrying the theme of “Preparing To Win In The Turns’’, this premier annual CIO event targeting 200+ CIOs, CDOs, CISOs, C-level delegates and IT decision makers dedicates in optimizing delegates’ digital and business information technology management with a new strategic outlook and equips CIOs and CXOs with insight into how they should prepare and lead in the turns, building agility into systems, processes, and decision-making, both within their teams and among their peers.

Supporting Event: Zero Trust Security For Your Distributed Workforces (10 March 2021)

Highlight:
2020 has caught many businesses off guard. Users, data, devices, critical business applications and networks have left the office and become more distributed.

This shift in the way we work & do business has resulted in companies losing visibility into what was happening in their corporate and their employees’ personal networks, devices, and applications. This shift has also seen several cybercriminals and sophisticated hacking groups rapidly adjusting their techniques and tactics to take advantage of the situation.

Whether you are a Fortune 500 company or a small/medium enterprise, there are fundamentally three things you need to protect: data, devices, applications, and the network itself. Register for this session to: See how Hong Kong ranks in DDOS attacks distribution globally

Supporting Event: Time to Containment – Supercharge SOC With a New Approach to Incident Response (24 Feb 2021)

Date: 24 Feb 2021 (Wednesday)
Time: 14:00 – 15:00 (GMT +8)

Highlight:
How do you shoot down a missile before it hits its target? That’s the problem facing today’s incident response teams. As cyberattacks increase in volume and velocity, the security operations center (SOC) handling incident response is the nexus for this challenge.

A well-honed incident response operation, that combined EPP+EDR, can deliver an impressive return on investment. In many data breach incidents, the cost is more than financial, and it is well known that the time cyber security teams take from the breach to containment is critical.

With the stakes so high, how can your cyber security team shrink the time between detecting and handling cyber threats?

In this special webinar, Kelvin Wee, Director of Security Engineering at SentinelOne – APJ, will cover these key questions and more:

  • Why traditional protective approaches are no longer enough
  • The importance of automation in the response process
  • How to identify and establish key metrics in incident response
  • Technical live demonstration of SentinelOne’s single agent, static AI platform that helps cyber security teams to prevent, detect, respond and hunt threats in real time

Join us to learn how to supercharge your SOC with a new approach to incident response.

Supporting Event: Adopting Zero Trust for Remote Access

Date: 20 Jan 2021 (Wednesday)
Time: 11:00am

Highlight:
By definition, a Zero Trust security model advocates the creation of zones and segmentation to control sensitive IT resources. This also entails the deployment of technology to monitor and manage data between zones, and more importantly, user interactions within a zone(s). A Zero Trust security model redefines the architecture of a trusted network inside a defined corporate perimeter. This is relevant today since technologies and processes like the cloud, DevOps, and IoT have either blurred, or dissolved altogether, the idea of a traditional perimeter.

While the Zero Trust model has become a trendy catchword in IT, it is complex and difficult to implement for many organizations in Asia Pacific, because it requires the establishment of a model of trust, verification, and continuous evaluation of trust for further access and lateral movement.

Join BeyondTrust and (ISC)² on Jan 20, 2021 (Wed) at 11am (GMT +8), Ajay Kumar, Director for Security Engineering at BeyondTrust, review the practical shortcomings and limitations of a Zero Trust model, and explain how to achieve Zero Trust using the Privileged Remote Access model.

Highlight:
Today’s applications have become the focal point for cybercriminals, on which financial fraud and abuse are constantly happening. A misunderstanding of what does and does not protect your digital footprint can lead to devastating breaches, while some companies are still believe in and even base real business decisions and security outcomes on misconceptions. It’s critical to bust the myths and get back to better protection.

Join F5 and (ISC)² on Dec 16, 2020 (Wed) at 11am (Hong Kong Time) as Ryan Lo, Manager of Solutions Engineering from Shape Security (part of F5), separates fact from fiction when it comes to defending your apps from sophisticated attacks, including:

• Understanding how MFA just adds more information to the dossier of a targeted account.
• CAPTCHA is a fabled response to a sophisticated problem, like bots.
• Password schemes won’t protect user accounts from being taken over.
