The cybersecurity company Palo Alto Networks Inc. (PANW) today announced the publication of a new guide for organizations in Singapore. It’s called “Navigating the Digital Age: The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers.”
The guide, published in collaboration with Forbes, provides business leaders and executives at enterprises, government agencies and other organizations with practical, actionable advice on how best to protect their organization from cyberattacks.
Let’s Talk Cybersecurity
The Singapore edition of the guide is supported by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore and targeted at both executives seeking a better understanding on the topic of cybersecurity as well as seasoned professionals in the cybersecurity field. Advice is provided regarding a range of cybersecurity issues. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based security firm says the guide is also intended to enable business leaders to start having conversations on topics such as the Internet of Things (IoT), legal and regulatory cybersecurity considerations as well as prevent breaches.
In October 2016, the cybersecurity industry leader signed a memorandum of collaboration with the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore to address a rise in cybercrime worldwide, particularly that aimed at and waged by government bodies. The collaboration between the tech company and the national government included the sharing of threat intelligence, industry education and national capability building. The latest guide released by Palo Alto on cybersecurity, particularly in Singapore, demonstrates the firms continuing focus on the region. (See also: Singapore, Palo Alto Ink Cybersecurity Deal.)
"Cybersecurity can support the goals of senior executives to keep the company running and profitable. Executive leadership must set organizational strategy that builds cybersecurity considerations into the business planning process. Toward that goal, technical and non-technical personnel should enter into a common lexicon to discuss how cyber is the vector where good and bad things happen and that there is no such thing as cyber risk, it is just risk to the business," wrote Sean Duca, vice president and regional chief security officer at Palo Alto Networks.
