CYBERSECURITY: STRENGTHENING YOUR CYBER DEFENCE IN THE MIDST OF PANDEMIC

Equip Yourself with Set of Skills in Dealing with Cyber Attacks During the Most Challenging Times

 

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

Cybersecurity threats are no longer confined to companies in information and communications technology sector. More companies across sectors are also adopting cloud storage and cloud data threats are getting more prevalent.

The cyber threat landscape is ever-evolving and cyber security needs to be considered as a continuous effort to enable better protection, detection and mitigation of attacks. This course introduces companies’ management to the concepts and terminologies in cybersecurity. It also brings these decision-makers up-to-date on the latest cyber threat landscape and enables them to better understand and appreciate cyber security. This training provides hacking skills as well as defense techniques because in the cyber world, organisations need security. It is crucial that we learn hacking techniques before securing the cyber world.

The course also covers the recent attacks and threats, as well as an explanation on each of their mechanics in layman’s term for the participants to acquire a deeper understanding and knowledge on what goes on under the hood.

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND THIS MASTERCLASS?

1. Learn effective ways to build an indestructible defense system by thinking like a black hacker.
2. Understand and know how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in the target system.
3. Hands-on lab experience with the tools that are used by real attackers to help you check for vulnerabilities that can be exploited.
4. Understand the methodology to assess your organisation’s information security resilience by doing a penetration test against it.
5. Learn real-world examples with hands-on tutorials and step by step instructions so that you can go from zero to hero.

HOW COULD COVID-19 IMPACT AN ORGANISATION’S CYBERSECURITY RISK?

We expect that many initial organisational responses on COVID -19 will have a net-negative impact on the cybersecurity posture of the business. This will be both as a result of existing risk being left unaddressed as security expenditure is cut and IT changes are frozen, and as we see new risks emerging. A shift to remote working and prioritizing business operations will bring immediate risks. 


1. Security controls may not be applied to new systems or tools hastily stood up to support employees with remote working that “just works”.
2. Existing processes and good practices may be sidestepped by or not available to employees when they encounter obstacles to normal ways of working.
3. Employees may be more susceptible to social engineering attacks as attackers take advantage of employees’ increased workloads, unfamiliar ways of working and heightened stress levels.
4. Reliance on remote access systems may make organisations more vulnerable to distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks.
5. Employees will be required to work with technologies they are not familiar with, potentially resulting in new security risks being introduced.
