Detect And Defence: Safeguarding the Cyber Future

In today’s digital age, cybersecurity is more than just an IT concern - it is a fundamental business imperative.

Recent cyber incidents targeting significant Malaysian entities like Maxis, and The Youth and Sports Ministry have underscored the urgency of this issue, revealing vulnerabilities that can have far-reaching implications for organisations across the nation.

To shed light on effective strategies to combat cybersecurity threats, we speak with Ian Farquhar, the Security Chief Technology Officer at Gigamon. Gigamon stands at the vanguard of network security, offering insights and solutions that are vital for protecting digital infrastructures against sophisticated cyberattacks.

Our conversation pivots around the advanced tactics employed by hacker groups such as Rootk1t, the importance of deep observability in cybersecurity, and actionable strategies that Malaysian businesses and budding entrepreneurs may implement to safeguard their digital assets.
