The Cyber Security Masterclass

An exclusive online masterclass for senior cyber security & IT executives in India

Hosted by Cloudflare, The Cyber Security Masterclass offered an intimate online forum for senior cybersecurity and IT executives from prominent firms in India. 

This is a continuation of a series of knowledge-sharing events we’ve hosted in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand.

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve all the wealth of experience from the senior peers.

Security Lessons Learned from the Pandemic – What’s Next?

The global pandemic challenged global leaders to demonstrate efficiency and agility to drive positive business outcomes, in the face of increasing uncertainty. Now more than ever, it is of paramount importance that businesses make sure that their online customers and employees have a secure, fast and reliable experience. 

A three-year digital transformation roadmap was instead implemented by many companies in three months, and the experience came with many lessons learned that will stay with businesses long after the crisis is over. Organisations expect to see more mission-critical workloads in the cloud and an increase in demand for security as an investment, not just as a cost centre. What have IT and cybersecurity leaders worldwide truly learnt from this experience?

  • What are the top security challenges organisations have been faced at the onset of the global crisis? 
  • How have global IT leaders overcome these challenges and what are their upcoming concerns?
  • What does the future cybersecurity landscape hold? And how can organisations be better prepared for future incidents?
