    by Britta Glade on July 25, 2017

    Walk down the streets of Jakarta or Jaipur, and you will be sure to see people browsing the latest news or streaming their favorite shows on their portable devices. This is no surprise since Asia Pacific is home to the world’s largest population of Internet users, bolstered by a strong mobile movement and a thriving millennial population. With the surge of connected devices in recent years comes…

  • Privacy in Singapore: A Light, If Frequent, Touch

    by Sam Pfeifle on July 12, 2017

    In January, the Personal Data Protection Commission in Singapore will celebrate its fifth anniversary. While any number of privacy regulators have popped up since the PDPC’s establishment – from the Philippines’ to Japan’s to Ghana’s – it’s still easy to think of Singapore as a relatively young governing body. The Personal Data Protection Act didn’t even come into full effect until July 2, 2014. …

  • India’s Evolving Privacy Culture

    by Sam Pfeifle on June 16, 2017

    As a global hub of outsourcing work, companies based in India handle and process personal data from around the world on a regular basis. And there is a robust and growing digital economy in India, with all of the attendant privacy risks. So, why is it that you almost never hear about privacy and data protection issues arising from India? Essentially, it’s because it’s unclear whose job it is to…

  • IoT Adoption in Asia-Pacific: One Size Does Not Fit All

    by Britta Glade on June 1, 2017

    Is the Internet of Things (IoT), the solution of all things? Some may agree and some may not, but Asia Pacific’s attraction toward IoT will only become more apparent in the coming years. Asia looks poised to lead IoT spending. In 2015, the region accounted for more than 40 percent of the total worldwide IoT expenditure, and IoT spending in Asia Pacific will be the highest globally over the next…

    RSA Conference Asia Pacific & Japan 2017 takes place July 26-28 in Singapore, with additional pre-Conference offerings earlier in the week. As with the US, this year the Call for Speakers submission process netted a 30% increase in the number of submissions, creating a very challenging judging environment for our expert Program Committee. Several interesting trends emerged as the Program Committee…

  • The Continued Evolution of Ransomware in APJ

    by Masayoshi Someya on May 29, 2017

    As discussed in my previous article, ransomware was arguably the most notorious cyber threat for businesses in 2016. Ransomware caused severe disruptions to victims in different industries and countries, forcing them to shut down business and, in some cases, pay ransom with the hope of speed recovery. Although malware spam messages that distribute ransomware look rather rudimentary, the actual…

  • DevSecOps is Alive and Thriving in APJ

    by Alan Shimel on May 26, 2017

    In founding DevOps.com, I have been travelling the world observing, reporting and speaking out about DevOps, infosec and DevSecOps over the last 3-4 years. A constant theme I heard for much of that time was that the APJ region was probably slightly behind the wave around DevOps and DevSecOps. I never questioned the assumption. I should have. Another lesson in why you should never assume. After…

  • Rethinking the Approach to Cybersecurity

    by Bryce Boland on May 15, 2017

    Asian organizations have made significant progress on improving their cybersecurity over the past year. That’s the good news. Now the other side of that: FireEye research shows that Asia Pacific organizations face heightened threat levels. Due to geopolitical tensions and increasingly sophisticated criminal groups, the area’s threat activity isn’t likely to drop any time soon. Making matters…

  • Ransomware at The Tipping Point

    by Masayoshi Someya on May 8, 2017

    In the past, we saw malware outbreaks such as LoveBug, SQL Slammer, and DOWNAD, but haven’t seen such an epidemic for almost a decade now. Malware outbreaks were supposed to be a thing of the past. However, 2016 became an unprecedented year in the modern era of cyber security, with the game changer in the name of ransomware. Ransomware is a very different type of cyber threat in the modern era, …
