WRB talks at security trends conference

SGV Advisory Partner Warren Bituin (WRB) was a keynote speaker at the recently-concluded Security Trends 2018: Data Breach held in Makati Shangri-La, Makati City. The conference, organized by Trend Micro, brought together various security professionals to discuss about building cyber resiliency against emerging threats.

WRB discussed one of the challenges which organizations contend with when facing a potential cyber-attack: the increasing sophistication of threats and a shortage in cybersecurity talent. He presented use cases of organizations that invested heavily in preventive countermeasures, but still fail to detect and respond accurately and appropriately to cyberattacks. He also introduced the viability of managed threat detection and response models to discover and contain cyber-attacks with greater accuracy and efficiency.

The Department of Information and Communications Technology-Cybersecurity Bureau OIC George Tardio also presented the Philippine National Cybersecurity Plan and its implementation milestones. Other cybersecurity experts presented the latest cybersecurity trends, technology how-to’s and capacity building strategies. WRB was accompanied by SGV Associate Kelvin Rey Angeles during the conference.
