RSA security conference heads to Singapore

The annual RSA Conference Asia Pacific & Japan is set to return to Singapore this July.

Held over three days at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center, the security conference hosts established regional business leaders and prominent cybersecurity experts.

The Conference will feature more than 50 sessions and workshops spanning across five dedicated conference tracks – Cloud, Mobile & IoT Security, eFraud & Law Enforcement, Global Perspectives, Security Strategy & Data Security, and Threats & Threat Actors.

According to the organisers, the event will facilitate engaging discourse and sharing of in-depth insights on a variety of information security policy and technology topics, with a look at the future of the information security industry from a unique Asia Pacific perspective.

“The sophistication of cybercrimes is evolving as rapidly as innovations in security technologies are, and so it is imperative for enterprises and governments to set cybersecurity as a core focus area – especially in Asia Pacific, where we are seeing an exponential growth in technology and internet penetration,” explains Linda Gray, general manager of RSA Conference.

“Conference attendees can expect to hear from some of the world’s leading security minds at RSAC 2016 APJ who will deliver deep insights and guidance on the cybersecurity issues we are currently facing,” she says.

The exposition also serves as a knowledge-sharing platform for businesses and organisations across public and private sectors to discover new technological advancements and solutions to enhance their cybersecurity measures.

Notable keynote speakers include world renowned humanitarian and winner of the Nobel Man of Peace award, Sir Bob Geldof. In the closing keynote “The Effects of the Digital Age”, he will examine the intersection of the digital world with sustainability, resources and political instability. In addition, he will also address the effect of how social media sites are being used to gain rebel support, the high-frequency trading of commodities as well as how young people live in a highly connected virtual world.

Additional keynote sessions include:

  • Amit Yoran, President, RSA, will deliver the opening keynote
  • Alex Taverner, Head of Cyber, Commercial Solutions – JAPAC, BAE Systems
  • Ben Johnson, Co-Founder & Chief Security Strategist, Carbon Black
