Trend Micro PH aims to boost cyber-defenders’ skills to combat cybercrime amid a transforming world

The need for any business to transform has been desperately needed, particularly when the ‘new normal’ arises suddenly and rapidly. When a number of businesses are forced to streamline or even cease their activities, it is no wonder that cybercriminals continue to prosper, even more creatively and strategically than ever before. That is why Trend Micro comes in with a valuable mission to help elevate cybersecurity on businesses and individuals.

Trend Micro PH aims to boost cyber-defenders’ skills to combat cybercrime amid a transforming world

 
“The pandemic did not just change the way businesses—and subsequently, their employees—operate; the nature of certain criminal activities have also changed in this time of isolation,” said cybersecurity experts in the Trend Micro 2020 Mid-Year Security Report.
 
“Trend Micro’s mission is to make the internet a safer place, and we will continue to proactively disrupt cybercriminal activities. We’ve never felt more motivated to work toward this mission as people need protection during such times as these. Mutual help and support are extremely important for our goal to succeed.”
 

Elevate beyond the ordinary

As the new challenges emerge, both organizations must recognize the need for change. Logically, this is the moment when IT practitioners should be prepared not only with the right equipment but also with the right experience and skills. As cyber-defenders, they must rise to promote the transition of their companies as easily, seamlessly, and safely as possible.
 
The fourth edition of Decode PH reflects on this timely issue. With the slogan “Elevate: Transform Rapidly, Seamlessly, Securely”, the annual conference itself is transforming as it is fully virtual. From being a one-day affair, it will also be expanded to a 3-day summit from November 10-12, 2020.

Decode 2020 seeks to bring together more than 3,000 Filipino IT experts from different organizations around the country and abroad. In the middle of challenging times, the 3-day conference will discuss up-to-date information on the threat landscapes, industry trends, and emerging innovations for participants’ further empowerment.

As the summit is virtual, it is more than doubling the number of sessions — from 15 in the previous edition to 40 this year. Each of the 30-minute sessions will be streamed one by one instead of simultaneously, which was how it was handled physically in the previous three years.
 
Among the highlights are the keynote sessions of Hathaway Global, LLC President Melissa Hathaway, who will discuss how digital infrastructures react to the ‘new normal’ demands; SyCip Gorres Velayo & Co Cybersecurity, Privacy, and Trusted Technology Principal Philip Casanova, who will share the timeless values he discovered in his two-decade journey as a Philippine-based cybersecurity professional; and Trend Micro Director and Data Scientist for Threat Research Jon Oliver, who will share his evaluation of the current emergence of malware and security landscapes.
 
In addition, Decode 2020 will also feature sidetracks outside regular sessions. As a virtual conference, it will also add new features such as a virtual lounge where attendees can network via a chat box during breaks. At the same time, Decode will emerge as a community, apart from being an annual summit. Successful registrants will be entitled to hold their accounts for a year such that they can quickly read the summit sessions at any time and potentially communicate with other IT experts on the network.
