A session on technology risk in the digital era, a new approach to Cyber Security in Nepal, World is Witness to a Digital Tsunami and dynamic business models. With everything changing how do we address the new threats?

In the last few years security or protection against cyber threats has been a high priority investment for governments as well as for large corporate. Inspite of this awareness there have be several customer data breaches across various countries resulting in losses worth billions of dollars. While there is a strong focus on protecting the periphery it has been established on several occasions that the controls within the data centre or IT operations are very weak and this is primarily due to business exigencies and speed of doing business. The pertinent question to ask is who is guarding the Guards.

It is our firm belief that security or adequate risk mitigation strategy should always embrace the Defense in depth approach and it essentially means that Basics have to be strong. This session will take us back to what is a must in security i.e. close as many doors as possible.
