Seminar on “Evolve Your Cyber Defenses with Quad9 & Cognitive Security”

Date, time & venue

2018-03-12;18:30 to 20:00;James Chiu Room – 9/F

Programme Highlights

Cybercrime has been one of the top problems in cybersecurity for the past few years.  And it’s not just a global issue, it has been reported a 23% rise in security incidents in Hong Kong in 2016, to 6,058, compared with 2015.  Among all malware cases, ransomware contributed to 309 cases, a 506% jump from 2015.  The latest security breach as reported by WWPKG and Uber have attested to Hong Kong’s vulnerability to cyberattacks.  It’s clear that this problem isn’t going away and these figures suggest the traditional standalone security product and ‘buy-it-all’ approach is inadequate.  A variety of best practices that everyone should follow and how companies can build a strong security immune system to prevent, detect as well as instantly response to cyber attacks with the help of cognitive technology will be discussed.
