The campaign's full scale, including all of the tactics, techniques and procedures being used by attackers remaining unknown, has left most enterprises across the regions in a state of shock.

What are the lessons the CISOs need to learn from this attack? Do you have a process to evaluate your vendor's security policies and frameworks?

The panel will discuss:

  • How should the risk framework of supply chain vendors evolve;
  • The risks posed by different kinds of vendors;
  • Defining security by design approach while evaluating the third party products.
