DCD’s 10th Anniversary SE Asia Conference will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center on the 14/15th of September as the flagship event of Singapore Data Center Week and is set to attract an audience of over 1,500 of the region’s most senior IT infrastructure professionals.

“We have seen increasing cybersecurity concerns emerge over the past two years, and we have begun working with key industry associations such as CSA, ACCA and ISACA, and industry leaders such as Fortinet, to properly address these,” says Vincent Liew, Managing Director of DatacenterDynamics Asia Pacific. “This September, we look forward to gaining insights from international speakers who are experts in the domain of cybersecurity as it relates to the latest technological advances, such as blockchain and machine learning.”

Building defense ahead of the changing security threat

Tackling cybersecurity issues involves more than one player. Professionals across the IT stack have to work together. New technologies such as machine learning, new advances in algorithms and cognitive IT are promising , but each comes with its own set of challenges. There are many unknowns in defining and eliminating the threat, and the only way to achieve this is through the industry coming together to share knowledge and experiences.

“Implementing a consistent security strategy across both IT and OT is essential for the future. Before that can happen, both sides must understand their threat environment.”, says Ed Ansett, Chairman and co-founder of i3 Solutions. Ansett is one of the pioneers of the mission critical facilities industry, and has resolved many data center failures across the world. He is set to speak at DCD Converged SE Asianext week alongside other experienced IT leaders from LinkedIn, Facebook, Alibaba, Merck, SAP, and over 80 others.
