According to experts, implementing a Cybersecurity Mesh Architecture (CSMA) can reduce the financial impact of individual security incidents by an average of 90% by 2024. As cyber threats continue to evolve, a holistic and dynamic approach to security like CSMA is becoming increasingly critical. To stay cyber resilient, organisations must integrate their network, identity, and endpoint securities, together with security operations and SD-WAN, under a zero-trust framework.

The upcoming Singtel cybersecurity forum in Hong Kong, themed “Cybersecurity Mesh: The next wave of cyber defence,” will focus on the importance of the Cybersecurity Mesh Approach in the current cybersecurity landscape and its role in safeguarding businesses in the post-pandemic era.
