Palo Alto Networks Hosts Cybersecurity Summit in India

The digital wave has taken the world by storm and India is not far behind. With various initiatives like Digital India and the recent demonetisation drive, the landscape is fast changing. Unfortunately, mounting a cyberattack has become cheaper and easier than ever before, and the data ever more valuable. Innovations in technology have improved our way of life and methods of doing business, but at the same time, have brought in a new challenge: more entry-points for cybercriminals.

Having a prevention mind-set at the executive level is the first step in changing the economics of the cybersecurity problem. In conjunction with Indian thought leaders from the public and private sectors, Palo Alto Networks will showcase how organisations in India can shape their cybersecurity prevention strategy. A range of valuable topics will be covered through a series of keynote speeches, business, industry and technical presentations, as well as panel sessions, and will include key themes such as Breach Prevention: From the Network to the Cloud and how Prevention is the Future.
In addition, cybersecurity experts including thought leaders from BFSI, ITES, academia and government will cover key issues faced in India and around the region, to clearly demonstrate how prevention is possible.

The Cybersecurity Summit has been successful in Australia, Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan, wherein over 5000 senior IT professionals have participated. It offers a platform where stalwarts from around the world are able to speak about one of the most relevant topics of the modern age: Cybersecurity. Experts from companies like SA Power Networks, Australian Cyber Security Research Institute, PwC, Telstra, Australia Post, SunRice, Bangkok Bank, Ministry of Digital and Economy and Society Thailand, PT. Telkom Indonesia, and Seoul National University of Education have all been part of this summit.
