PROTECT 2018 is the longest-running security and safety event in the Philippines.
This will be on March 5-6, 2018 at SMX Convention Center, Manila.
The PROTECT series is a high-level security and safety event in the Philippines since 2005.
Now on its 13th year, PROTECT brings to realization that all threats to security and safety are commonly shared by the private and public sector.
The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to the:
– Design and analysis of cryptographic algorithms and protocols; analysis of internationally standardized cryptographic algorithms and protocols;
– Efficient implementation of cryptanalytic techniques;
– Security evaluation of Russian cryptographic algorithms and protocols;
– Efficient implementation of Russian cryptographic algorithms and protocols;
– Research in perspective cryptographic areas, such as (post-) quantum cryptography, consensus mechanisms in distributed ledger systems.
Poor cyber security has affected all levels of society, may it be in the national, local, or personal level. In the digital world, nation states, terrorist groups, tasteless organizations and rouge individuals can launch cyber-attacks from anywhere, anytime, disrupting and damaging our democracy and way of life.
To confront this problem, awareness must be raised. At “Cybercon Asia”, our mission is to produce a multi-stakeholder consortium that brings together various industries. Including, but not limited to the government, the academe, and the corporate sphere all with the objective to raise interest and awareness about the state of cyber security on both domestic and international level.
Time to gear up and get ROOTCON 12 a kick-off, starting off with our first task the ROOTCON 12 theme.
Event themes will give us the feel and vibe on the conference each year, last year we had Humans meets IoT where we had a vibe of knowing the troubles and insecurities on IoT devices.
This year we thought of giving highlights on the hacker community and the culture it’s living, our theme will be Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution which is based from the novel written by Steven Levey, on his novel he discussed about hacker culture and that he thought hackers were fascinating people, adventurers, visionaries, risk-takers and artists rather than what most ordinary nowadays pictured the word “hackers”. The look n feel of this years theme will be carrying a Retro and 8-bit feel.
Cybersecurity ceased to be a distant technical problem, important only for IT departments, and it became an integral part of companies’ strategies and their continuity – “to be or not to be”. We realized that cyber security would be one of the key challenges for the next decades. The total losses of the public and private sector in the world resulting from cybercrime are estimated at 1% of global GDP. Analysts predict that by 2021, these losses will amount to more than USD 6 trillion annually. Tasks are not facilitated by the low supply of cyber security specialists on the labor market.
All this creates a huge demand for comprehensive cybersecurity products and services. There was a need to create a platform for companies and startups, offering products and services of the cyber sector, as well as for small and large companies from various industries, which more than ever need effective protection against a constantly evolving threat. We have created CYBERSEC EXPO for all of them!
CYBERSEC EXPO 2019 is an international two-day trade fair of cybersecurity products and services that gather suppliers, users and cyber-security enthusiasts from around the world.
PROTECT 2019 Theme: “Business Resiliency – the Next Evolutionary Phase of Business Continuity”
