WR Presents: Demystifying Cybersecurity
Cybersecurity is a term often heard at work, in the news, through banks’ communications to us customers, on social media sites, and so on. What does it really mean? Is it really scary? Are we targets? Why is it important, and what does it mean to you – as an individual, a partner, a sibling/ parent/ grandparent/ close relative? What are practical things that you can do to protect yourself from having your identity (and reputation) compromised?
Whilst not a “one to cover all grounds” session, this interactive talk aims to empower you with practical insights on cybersecurity, and what it means to you and what you can do to help protect yourself and loved ones.
About the Speaker
Ng Yi Ling
Yi Ling is an Information Security professional with a global Fortune 500 bank. Throughout her 14-year career, she has dabbled in both the mundane (but necessary) and exciting parts of IS. Cybersecurity is, by far, the most fascinating domain that she has had the privilege of experiencing and working on to date – the consistently random evolution of cyber threats and countermeasures, facts and myths, and depth of skils and knowledge in play juxtaposed with a breadth of barely-there visibility. She claims no expertise or mastery in this field but believes in the maxim that “Information is King; Knowledge is Power” and that through sharing and working together as a community, cybersecurity preparedness will cease to be a case of “what” but “when.”
