This year's Asia Pacific Summit will be hosted in-person in both Singapore and Sydney over two days. The program will address the convergence of fast-moving trends transforming the financial sector – such as cloud, fintech, and cryptocurrencies – which require reimagining cyber resiliency for a new era of complex, cross-border, and ever-evolving cyber risks.

Topics include: 

  • Attack vectors and indicators 
  • Cloud security 
  • Fraud, identity, and money 
  • Governance, risk management, and compliance 
  • Global intelligence 
  • Resilience and recovery 
  • Security organization and people 
  • Tech, apps, and data 

With border restrictions more relaxed, members across the region are encouraged to attend the Summit in-person in either Singapore or Sydney to reconnect and network with peers. The seating capacity at both venues are limited. We strongly encourage members to register to secure their slot early. Slots are given on a first-come, first-served basis.

Singapore Day 1 Keynote: Evolution of Cyber Threats Over the Years – a Practitioner’s Perspective

Event Toggle Arrow

Over the past 20 years the speed of change in the cyber threat landscape is ever increasing. In the midst of all the fast paced changes in this cat and mouse game between adversaries and defender TTP, compounded by the complexity and sophistication of IT systems and capabilities, some basic principles still hold true.

Sydney Day 1 Keynote: A Coordinated Defense to a Common Enemy: Collaboration as the Cornerstone of Cybersecurity

Richard Johnson | CISO | Westpac Group

Event Toggle Arrow

Cybersecurity is often framed as a contest between attackers (largely criminals and spies) and defenders (corporations, governments and citizens). Communities of attackers share freely - attacks, targets, assets - and yet defenders' collaboration is constrained, by cultural norms, reputational risk, cumbersome agreements and legal constraints. If we are collectively to improve the defence of the economy, we must become dramatically more able to collaborate freely and be more open in what we share.

In this conversation, Richard will share how Westpac is approaching this challenge. He will provide insights into Westpac's approach to Cyber Threat Intelligence, how it supports and drives collaboration with industry and government, and the multilayered approach it takes to cyber behavioural change across its workforce.
