CLOUDSEC to share security best-practice with Australian organisations to fight cybercrime



SYDNEY, 15 August 2017 CLOUDSEC, the leading internet security conference in Asia Pacific and Europe, will hold its second annual event in Sydney today. This event leads up to a tour across APAC countries, including India, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Australia and the United Kingdom, before making the last stop in The Republic of Korea.

Hosted by Trend Micro, CLOUDSEC 2017 gathers together renowned experts, industry thought leaders, businesses and organisations from across the globe to re-evaluate and redefine their understanding of threats, risks and solutions in a rapidly evolving threat landscape. This event aims to empower organisations to stay one step ahead in the fight against the next-generation of security threats.

“With the commercialisation of the internet to the greater population, taking a joined-up worldview on delivering infosec basics is an innovation disruptive not only to cybersecurity but, importantly, to cybercrime,” said Dr Sally Ernst, co-founder, Australian Cyber Security Network.

Concurring with Dr Ernst’s comments is Peter Coroneos, founder and principal, Coroneos, Cyber Intelligence. “Today’s security threats have evolved to a level of sophistication that we require new ways to protect our resources and data. IT Security is everyone’s responsibility - all it takes is one wrong move by an individual for an organisation to be compromised,” said Coroneos. “CLOUDSEC Australia is about providing delegates with valuable insights they can take away and use in their own organisations and encouraging them to share best-practice in their fight against cybercrime and I’m very much looking forward to being part of it.”

With the rise in internet connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT), Australian organisations are grappling with security mechanisms to address their vulnerabilities that lie exposed to cybercriminals.

According to Gartner, by 2020 there will be more than 25 billion connected devices, a hotbed of opportunity for cyber attackers. Today, IoT devices have become the preferred choice for cyber attackers looking to disrupt and paralyse organisations as well as targeted attacks, BEC (Business Email Compromise) and next generation vs. cross-generation security.
