CLOUDSEC, the leading global cybersecurity conference, will take place in Mumbai on October 25. Hosted by Trend Micro Incorporated, CLOUDSEC India 2018 provides a platform for the industry to discuss and address cybersecurity issues arising from a hyper-connected world, with this year’s theme being ‘Freedom to Connect’.
CLOUDSEC India 2018 will see renowned experts, industry thought leaders, and CIOs/CISOs from government agencies and businesses come together to re-evaluate and redefine their understanding of threats and risks. Leading cloud service providers – Amazon Web Services (AWS) and VMware – will hold a series of breakout sessions, where they will share their insights on securing various types of cloud environments. At the event, Trend Micro researchers will also be sharing findings and first-hand insights around emerging threats such as cryptojacking and other such covert, low-profile attacks that are fast gaining momentum.
“We are increasingly seeing cybercriminals move away from attention-grabbing ransomware attacks, which peaked in 2017, to more covert methods intended to steal money and valuable computing resources of enterprises. Specific to India, the risk of cyberattacks will grow as businesses increasingly go digital, with many of them lagging in terms of implementation of security protocols as well as in their understanding of cyberthreats,” said Nilesh Jain, Vice President, Southeast Asia and India, Trend Micro.
CLOUDSEC India 2017 saw close to 800 participants in total. 63 percent of attendees were representatives from government agencies and enterprises and 15 percent identified as CIOs.
