The single-track event will bring together experts who will discuss a wide range of topics, including advanced persistent threats (APT), cyber warfare, law enforcement operations, protecting critical infrastructure, vulnerabilities and cyber security research.
Very few seats are still available for this intimate and exclusive event.
After a short introduction by Jeffrey Carr, CEO of Taia Global and creator of the Suits and Spooks event series, attendees will get a chance to learn about and discuss APT attribution and DNS profiling from Frankie Li, a security researcher with Hong Kong-based Valkyrie-X Security Research Group.
Jaekee Min, vice president of NSHC Pte., Ltd., will present an assessment of North Korea’s cyber warfare capabilities from the perspective of its primary target, South Korea. Later in the day, a Japan-based independent security researcher who uses the pseudonym “Vladimir” will detail North Korea’s technology transfer through North Korean residents living in Japan.
Since global surveillance and trust in cyberspace are a hot topic, Kamlish Bajaj, CEO of DSCI, will try to shed some light on the matter. Experts will also discuss the lessons learned from the private sector after the discovery of major vulnerabilities such as Heartbleed, ShellShock and POODLE.
On behalf of the law enforcement sector, Interpol’s Paul Ward will hold a briefing on the activities of the Cyber Fusion Centre, which he leads and which is part of the agency’s Digital Crime Centre within the Interpol’s Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore.
Suits and Spooks Singapore will also host two panels. One panel will focus on the challenges faced by nation states when securing critical infrastructure against cyberattacks. A second panel will assess the real threat posed by China in cyberspace.
Suits and Spooks is different from many other security conferences because its format encourages debate and discussion. Attendees can challenge speakers at any moment during their presentation, which ensures that no questions remain unanswered.
The event is closed to the press and held under the Chatham House Rule. Registration includes breakfast, lunch and tea breaks, and participants will be given the chance to win a prize in a drawing.
The Suits and Spooks conference was acquired this spring by Wired Business Media, publisher of SecurityWeek. The next event will be held in Washington D.C. in on Feb 4-5, 2015 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Pentagon City.
