Securing Digital India When: — Where: Manipal Global Academy of Data Science Category: Events

Manipal Global, in collaboration with Deakin University, is organizing an exclusive workshop on “Securing Digital India” on 12 April 2017 at Bangalore.


The workshop will be facilitated by cybersecurity expert, Prof. Matthew Warren from Deakin University. Prof. Warren will share the global best practices for cybersecurity capacity building and participants will gain a deeper understanding of the latest cybersecurity threats, learn various strategies to keep their organization safe, and also learn methods and approaches to evaluate attack and to limit damages from cyberattacks.


Strong cyber security is a fundamental element of growth and prosperity for all countries in a global economy. It is also vital for countries’ national security. It requires partnerships involving governments, the private sector, and the community. Global security threats and vulnerabilities now impact all corporations and their customers. The complexity of cyber security is making it harder for corporations to understand the threats and therefore manage cyber security. The briefing will focus upon the corporate view of cyber security and relate cyber security to key organisational considerations of people, technology, and processes.


The executive briefing will focus upon:

•           Cyber Security as a governance issue;

•           Legal implications of cyber security for Boards;

•           Cybersecurity expertise;

•           Staffing and budget implications;

•           Risk Management;

•           Global Perspectives of Cyber Security.


Attendees of the executive briefing will understand the key issues and challenges that corporations face in dealing with cyber security. The executive briefing will reflect on a number of global real life case studies and discuss best practices that corporations could adopt.
