Sophisticated Cyber Threats and Security Solutions Worldwide

Sophisticated Cyber Threats and Security Solutions Worldwide

by August 29, 2016

The digital world is quickly infiltrating all aspects of our everyday lives, creating new technological threats that demand yet to be developed security solutions. The Internet of Things, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, medical devices, the smart home and wearable computing are only a few of the fields with which the cyber defense industry will have to protect in the coming years.

Our growing vulnerability to cyber-attacks further emphasizes how our networks and cyber-lives remain insecure and exposed. The criminal world continues to grow stronger in the realm of cyberspace, initiating attacks and cyber warfare designed to generate profit and wreak havoc. Ransomware attacks have recently reached epidemic proportions, with such attacks aimed not just at private individuals but at large corporations and even major internet vendors and financial institutions.

Cyberspace has become the Wild West, with all those living in this new frontier vulnerable to frequent and sophisticated cyber-attacks. The unbearable ease of initiating cyber warfare attacks has made the task of defending computer infrastructures a global problem. An individual entity, no matter how efficient or technologically advanced as it may be, cannot claim to be absolutely secure. The supply chain of cyber warfare attacks is global and a single attack may involve citizens from several countries. Without cooperation, the world stands no chance of effectively combating this phenomenon.

There exists an inherent tension between the need to share information and the need to keep private data safe. Individuals, businesses and governments operating in the realm of cyberspace must understand that the same openness and freedoms that contribute to the advancement of society can be exploited by the ‘bad-guys’ to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars.

Without a doubt, we are in for a fascinating year in the global cyber technology world. Whether you are operating in the diplomatic, security, educational or professional field, one thing is certain – we are all connected and we will all have to join hands and work together in order to make the cyber technology world safer in the future.

In the face of these enemies and threats, individuals, organizations and states are required to produce innovative, unique solutions that would improve the resistance and resilience of the sensitive systems they rely on every day. For this purpose, it is essential to maintain a direct, on-going contact with the latest developments and changes in the cyber market.

To this end, we are proud to present Cybertech Singapore 2016 Conference & Exhibition, taking place September 6th & 7th, 2016. Building on last year’s incredible success, the annual global event will bring together leaders of the cyber industry and government decision makers from around the world.
