Cybersecurity campaign pushes through in 2022
MORE than 3,000 information technology professionals across the country viewed and joined the Information Security Officers Group (ISOG)’s month-long cybersecurity campaign, named “I am secure 2021: The great shift,” which provided learning and networking programs that strengthened the country’s cybersecurity strategies in the new normal.
The campaign kick-started with a virtual augmented venue opening on October 8, followed by a three-day conference, held from October 13 to 15. With the theme “Securing the new cyber norm,” the online conference aimed to further upskill professionals, experts and decision-makers in the field of cybersecurity. The online event was graced by local and international C-level executives; chief information security officers; chief technology officers; data privacy officers; security architects; risk and compliance heads; experts in cybersecurity, data privacy, and banking and finance industries; and even professionals from the academe, public and private sectors.
Attendees got insightful messages and action plans from keynote speakers, including Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Deputy Governor of the Financial Supervision Sector Chuchi Fonacier, National Privacy Commission Chairman and Commissioner Raymund Liboro, Bankers Association of the Philippines President Jose Arnulfo Veloso and Department of Information and Communications Technology Secretary Gregorio Honasan 2nd.
Next year, the organization planned to hold a series of hybrid fora to discuss the technological implications of the metaverse and the impact this would create in the enterprise landscape, especially in the banking and finance industries as well as the public sector. To celebrate cybersecurity month and ISOG’s seventh anniversary as the premier cybersecurity organization in the country, it will also hold the first ISOG Awards event in October 2022 to give due recognition to its members and partners for their valuable contributions to the success of the organization and its objectives.
