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.
Presenter: Ryan Lo, Manager of Solutions Engineering, Shape Security (Part of F5)
Moderator: Otto Lee, CISSP, CCSP, CSSLP, Membership Chair, (ISC)² Hong Kong Chapter

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.
