In addition, for this year’s edition, the exhibition will provide more insights on cybersecurity threats, which has been the main concern for the government and private sectors. The Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Korea through its agency has joined hands with the National Computing and Information Service (NCIS) towards this cause. NCIS will organise a free panel discussion on 8 September on the topic “Korea’s Cybersecurity Strategy: Public-Private Collaboration to Respond to Cyber Attacks”. Meanwhile, CyberSecurity Malaysia will organise a paid training session on 7 September 2016 from 8.30am to 5.00pm. The training’s theme is “Cybersecurity Risk Management for C-suite”, and the goal is to prepare members of the board and other senior management to understand, assess and take a proactive posture in cybersecurity. Along the way, attendees will investigate risk assessment and management frameworks that help mitigate the risks, as well as identify potential security gaps that could prove a liability.
