9 Things You Can’t Miss at CLOUDSEC India 2018




It’s the time of the year again for cybersecurity industry’s most exciting annual event — CLOUDSEC 2018. Organized by Trend Micro, a leading global cybersecurity technology provider, CLOUDSEC India 2018 will take place on October 25 at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai, India.

Cybersecurity matters continue to confuse and befuddle governments, businesses, and users at large today. Compounding the issue is the fact that the conversation is constantly evolving. In 2017, the keyword in the industry was ransomware. This year, IoT-related attacks and GDPR have taken over as the hottest topics. In an ecosystem where things change almost every day, it is essential that government officials and companies keep themselves informed of the latest discussions in cybersecurity.

This year’s CLOUDSEC provides a platform for different parties in the ecosystem to mingle and learn from each other, be it the latest threats or the newest cybersecurity technologies. Only by exchanging experience and knowledge can we move forward as an industry. Here are 9 reasons why CLOUDSEC 2018 is the cybersecurity event of the year.

  1. Are you afraid to connect? Fear not!

This year’s theme is Freedom to Connect, in line with the rapid developments in IoT, artificial intelligence, and more.

Today, businesses know they have to be connected to the internet, but they are simultaneously concerned about exposing themselves to various cyberthreats and data breaches. During the conference, we will share tips and best practices of securing internet-connected operations.

  1. Beware of false horizons

    Digital transformation is creating a lot of anxiety and hype. Facing a growing collection of cybersecurity technologies, companies are often confused about which ones to adopt, and how to connect the dots between different technologies.

    Steve Quane, Executive Vice President, Network Defense and Hybrid Cloud Security, Trend Micro, will share tips and advice on how to utilize and integrate new technologies such as endpoint detection and response (EDR), AI, cloud workload protection, and more into one holistic and all-round strategy.

  2. Advanced cybersecurity strategies and solutions

    While enterprises in India are spending more on cybersecurity each year, organizations are still not confident of their ability to protect, detect, and respond to cyberthreats.

    Nilesh Jain, Vice President, Southeast Asia and India, Trend Micro, will talk about the strategies and solutions that enterprises can implement to thrive in the fast-changing threat landscape.

  3. Leap into the cloud conversation

    We are honored to have our cloud and virtualization partners – AWS and VMware– joining us this year. Together with Trend Micro, they will hold a panel discussion and a series of breakout sessions sharing their insights on securing the various types of cloud and virtual environments. Is your organization transitioning to cloud? Are you looking at DevSecOps or container technology? This is the best opportunity to meet the experts and ask them your questions.

  4. Hear from the industry analyst

    Andras Cser, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester, will participate in this year’s conference to talk about how to stay ahead of rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape.

  5. Listen to what the CIOs say

    CIOs from GSTN, Reliance Jio, and Bajaj Allianz will participate in CLOUDSEC and share how they’re securing their systems. Come hear their cybersecurity strategies and best practices first-hand!

  6. Demystify EDR/MDR 

    The hottest topics in cybersecurity today are endpoint detection and response (EDR) and managed detection and response (MDR). But do you know what they are? How are they different from endpoint protection most organizations are doing now? Our engineers will host dedicated tracks that aim to give you the A to Z of these two new industry terms.

  7. Old and new threats 

    Martin Rosler, Senior Director for Forward-Looking Threat Research, Trend Micro, has deep knowledge and background in threat research. Having led multiple underground research projects and taken down cybercriminal activities together with law enforcement, Martin will share with the audience his latest threat research and what to look out for in the near future.

  8. Rub shoulders with luminaries in the cybersecurity field

The event will see attendance from CIOs and CISOs from various companies in India, as well as prominent figures from Forrester giving feature talks.

With more than 6,500 attendees globally in 2017, CLOUDSEC has become one of the biggest international cybersecurity events that attract professionals from various fields looking to improve their cybersecurity practices. Here you will find some of the most influential people in cybersecurity, and it’s the perfect opportunity to ask them questions and have a meaningful conversation.
