  • Over the last 20 months, Covid-19 had an unprecedented impact on health, economy, society, lives and livelihoods. The virus and lockdown impacted varying industries differently; the recovery is also uneven.
  • 2022 promises to be a year of reset and promise; we are seeing mass vaccinations, a return to normalcy and strong rebound across India and many parts of APAC, though vaccine hesitancy and new mutants are causing some anxiety.
  • Covid-19 accelerated digital transformation and rapid adoption of technologies.
  • Globally, geo-political, environmental and technological risks have been intensifying, leading to calls for shorter and resilient supply chains and in/near shoring. What major risks are being faced by businesses in South Asia as we contemplate a return to normalcy.
  • What has been the impact of the Pandemic on Corporate Security? Has it hastened digital transformation of the security function? What technologies are seeing rapid adoption?

Discussion points:

  • Digital transformation and tech-enabled disruption are mega-trends of our times. What are the major emerging paradigms and trends in evolving security architecture?
  • With the bulk of the world running on mobile devices, and physical perimeters losing relevance in a hybrid work environment, the importance of securing information has never been in greater focus. Organizations need to pay special attention to securing their digital assets now, perhaps at par with their physical assets if not more.
  • Most organizations need to relook at their information security infrastructure (devices, cloud, perimeter, network, applications etc) to ensure digital security and resiliency at this critical juncture.
  • Building Zero Trust frameworks in a world with such trust deficit is difficult? How are Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) of large organizations establishing and sustaining “Zero Trust” frameworks?.

Discussion Points:

  • Contemporary technologies such as AI, IoT, Mobile and Cloud are potentially disruptive and game changing. Deep Learning systems and advanced analytics strengthen surveillance and make real time extraction and sharing of actionable intelligence easy. They assist intel, security and law enforcement agencies to recognise suspicious activities without much human supervision, and to act pre-emptively and decisively
  • The benefits of Deep Learning for face recognition and image classification makes it extremely valuable in the field of security as it allows for easy identification of suspects, vehicle detection, and behaviour analysis.
  • The panel will examine the technologies that would redefine surveillance, security (including those of devices, networks and applications), fire, transport and life safety, incident and emergency management landscape. The discussion would include, but not be limited to AI, ML, AA, IoT, Cloud, internet, Social Media, Blockchain etc.
  • The need for skilled professionals in surveillance and command centre operations
  • Trusting your instincts – the need for behavioural detection training
