Fortifying Human Firewalls: Cybersecurity's New Frontier

We’ll be looking at the critical issue of cybersecurity, spotlighted by a recent Fortinet Malaysia survey revealing that over 30% of devices in Malaysian networks are unmanaged, potentially leading to serious breaches. This concern is compounded by predictions from Singapore, with a significant expected rise by 2025. Amidst increasing cyber threats, including a notable surge in scams, phishing, and varied forms of cyber attacks, businesses face the challenge of reinforcing their defences, particularly the human aspect. We're joined by Dickson Woo, Country Manager of Fortinet Malaysia, who will discuss the importance of strengthening human firewalls, understanding social engineering attacks, and building comprehensive cybersecurity resilience in the face of evolving digital threats.
