Thailand Virtual Executive Breakfast Exchange

A Tour of Application Security Trends and Digital Experience Challenges


Date: Wednesday, January 27, 2021
9:00AM - 10:00AM ICT

As firms accelerate the pace of their Digital Journey to reach their customers, applications will be the primary medium to experience your brand, fulfil transactions and generate revenue. Protecting your organization and your customers means staying up to date on emerging threats, and expanding the reach of your security team.

According to the Forrester report, The State of Application Security 2020, applications are the leading attack vector in security breaches:

Of global security decision makers whose firms experienced an external attack said it was carried out by exploiting a software vulnerability
Of global security decision makers whose firms experienced an external attack said it was through a web application

It’s no surprise that these are the top two causes of external breaches; as applications become more complex, rely on internal and third-party components, and evolve to support new frameworks.

Please join us for this exclusive, invitation-only executive virtual breakfast session to hear our guest speaker Sandy Carielli from Forrester Research and F5’s Shuman Ghosemajumder share their insights on key application security trends, take a deep dive into bot attacks and engage in a discussion of how security can achieve your business goals and protect brand reputation.
