The Cyber world is a fast evolving and changing landscape.We were rocked by a number of high-profile and massive data breaches, hacks and ransomware attacks in 2018. Some estimated that the quantity of data stolen by cybercriminals could rise by as much as 175 percent over the next five years. Furthermore, the dynamic and fast-moving nature of cybersecurity outpaces regulation which is far too slow and clumsy to be of any benefit and might actually hinder security by building a culture of compliance with regulations and a false sense of security against enemies who are agile, motivated, and clever. Cybersecurity threats viewed as a nuisance or Weapon of Mass Disruption (WMD)are looking more likely a distance memory while Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) seems more apt in today's term. Add to that uncertainties in the global economy, 2019 and beyond looks set to be challenging for cybersecurity professionals.
As cyber security is the hot topic at the moment, there are many exhibitors with new product showcase and conference speakers sharing their expertise, I find it very informative and insightful. My job scope covers a broad spectrum, having other shows like Big Data and IoT in one room is very convenient. Look forward to coming back next year too!

I’m interested in a couple of topics (i.e. Internet of Things, eCommerce and cloud & cyber security), so that’s why I’m here. We’ve just finished a conversation with NETSCOUT and are quite interested in their products – we will keep in touch with them to see how we can further collaborate.

The event was good and informative. I've attended this event to browse for more products and solutions which we can use in our organisation to improve operations efficiency. I'll definitely be back next year.

I attend this show with no particular focus but the speaker line up is good, the topics covered are wide as well. The speakers provide insightful content that are relevant to my job – cloud, cyber security, networks and the co-location of different shows help to save time too!
