The IT and Cyber Security Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for IT and Cyber Security leaders in the Philippines

Hosted by Akamai, the IT and Cyber Security Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable was set up to offer an intimate online forum for senior IT and Cyber Security leaders from selected firms in the Philippines. 

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

Keeping Businesses Available and Secure

Businesses worldwide are preparing themselves for the ‘new normal’. With most employees working from home and customers moving online for their shopping and entertainment, organisations need networks to always be available in order to keep operations and transactions afloat. 

Cybersecurity matters now more than ever as cybercriminals exploit these moments of fear and uncertainty to launch DDoS attacks, penetrating system defences and driving networks offline. With easy access to increasingly affordable tools and cyber mercenaries, the job of the hacker only gets harder. Organisations are highly dependent on their digital infrastructures and are seeking intelligent security options to stay protected.

  • In what ways are enterprises leveraging their cloud-based security to reconfigure and improve their protection?
  • What are the main outage costs businesses are suffering during the current global pandemic?
  • What type of DDoS attacks have businesses experienced since the start of Covid-19 and what techniques are being used to deal with them?

2:30 pm: Welcome address by The Ortus Club
2:35 pm: Short address and sharing by Akamai
3:00 pm: Discussion instigated by the moderator and continued by the group
3:45 pm: End of session
