Asian Securitex Conference 2016

Emerging Threats – Expect the Unexpected in Asia
Cyber Security and Critical Infrastructure Security
亞洲安保早著先機 –


In 2015 we are seeing a shift in the global security world as threat actors turn toward digital method to cause harm, it brings out the concern that cyberattack against nearly any country’s critical infrastructure could be imminent and cripple a country’s ability to function. Asian Securitex Conference will come back in time on 5th May, 2016 to discuss the risk, challenges and preventions within cyber security and critical infrastructure security under the frame of “Emerging Threats – Expect the Unexpected in Asia”. This is a unique opportunity to network and share views and experiences with Asia experts and key opinion leaders from the industry and government.


在2015年我們看到利用黑客或科技犯罪來危害世界安全的趨勢愈來愈普遍,以國家關鍵基礎設施為目標的網絡攻擊威脅可謂迫在眉睫,更甚者有可能癱瘓國家網絡及操作。於2016年5月5日舉行的Asian Securitex安防會議將以「亞洲安防危機四伏─網絡安全及基建防衛風險及對策」為題,討論網絡安全及關鍵基礎設施防衛的風險、挑戰及預防對策,與會人士更可藉此難能可貴的機會與亞洲安防業領袖精英及政府專家交流切磋,分享心得。

預知隱憂 – 為何實體保安和網絡安全缺一不可Mr Paul Jackson  
Managing Director
Stroz Friedberg 

The constant news about data breaches suggests that we need to rethink cyber security. Time and again, the weak point is human behaviour, yet very few organisations have a successful, holistic approach to identifying and preventing internal risks. This presentation will explain the risks through examples, and suggest a framework for a multi-department collaboration towards an enhanced security posture.

不可不知的網絡安全操作知識Mr Kevin Ng 
Security Consultant – Technical and Risk Advisory
Engage (Asia) Ltd 

You must have learnt from your previous incidents that Information Security Experts are important and demanding to your Organisation. Are your fully aware of the Pre- and Post- Incident approach? If your Organisation has been attacked by some Ransomeware or Latest sophisticated Trojan through Spear-phishing one of your Executives, what would be the first thing you do. I am here to explore some real attack cases from an Operational prospective and how Executive Management become critical to protecting Information Security.

基礎建設安全防衛對策Mr Damian Ryan 
Arup Resilience|Security|Risk EA Leader
ArupA broad focus is needed as we scan the horizon for future threats but this is not always translated into the high levels of protection we might expect for individual facilities.  The current media focus is on cyber security and drone attack but other, more prosaic threats and associated mitigation measures are often neglected. Damian discusses some of the design approaches seen in large scale projects in EA over the last decade, in urban planning, transport and the commercial sector.

激進化主義與孤狼威脅Mr Totti Karpela 
Peace of Mind Ltd 

An overview of recent incidents where radicalisation has happened online and as a result of this process, single cell, or lone-wolf operators have become active. Terrorism, workplace violence, an armed and violent individual or a troubled teenager all share similarities regarding their modus operandi. Of major concern is the possibility of creating highly traumatic incidents. How does one become a ‘lone-wolf’, how does the self-concept and behaviour of the suspect change and what role does mental health play in this process? I will examine the path that leads to violence, discuss the latest methods that professionals can use to evaluate and hopefully neutralise the threat and discuss ways on preventing radicalisation from occurring.
