Cyber Security: The Strategic View

Cyber Security: The Strategic View

By: Kah-Kin Ho, Head of Cyber Security Business Development Threat Response, Intelligence and Development (TRIAD)

This session begins by giving an overview of how Cisco sees the challenges and opportunities of cyber security for the Government which include areas such as recent development on applicability of International Law to Cyber conflict, the evolving role of the Government as the legitimate security provider, Public-Private Partnership issues, and the evolving technical, social and political threat landscape. Cisco recognizes that cyber security begins at the policy level and translates through to the operational and system level. We will discuss why an intelligence-led network-centric approach that focuses on enforcing policy, enhancing situational awareness, and providing the insight necessary to tackle threats before they impact information and infrastructure assets is key to Cyber Security.
