Since 2015, the Taiwan Cyber Security Summit has received widespread support from the industry, government, academia, community, and a multitude of stakeholders. Just last year 2017, the number of conference participants officially exceeded 5,000 people. We are well aware that this success is not ours alone, but represents a dire need for cybersecurity solutions and services in Taiwan. Such support has also solidified our resolve for upholding the original mission of the Taiwan Cyber Security Summit: "Connect industries of Taiwan, create exposure to a wide range of security topics, and facilitate Dialogue to be able together transform Taiwan into a nation capable of dealing with cyber threats on all fronts.”
The primary theme of Taiwan Cyber Security Summit 2018 will be "Cyber First Cyber Taiwan". More than 140 different presentations will be covered over the three day conference, which encompass up to 60 hot topics and technical issues. Regardless of how much or how little you know about cybersecurity, there will be something for you at the conference. For the first day of the summit, the committee has specially organized a "CyberNext" and "Security by Design" forums to establish the concept of security first by exploring emerging technologies, paradigm shifts, and hardware security design.
For the first time, the summit committee has organized a "Cyber Taiwan Expo" to bring together Taiwan's security providers and startups in the hopes of demonstrating Taiwan's strong research and development capabilities in an attempt to link the supply side with the demand side to creat industry opportunities. In addition, the exhibition will include over 150 well-known domestic and international brands, and at least 700 different security products and services for participants to get a closer look at. Moreover, through "CyberLab", the summit provides simulation demonstrating how to deal with the 16 most frequent cyber attacks that enterprises are faced with.
We further welcome enterprise technical chiefs, technical managers, and strategic managers to take part in the "CISO Forum" which will be held for the second time last year to contribute to a joint understanding of the ins and outs of security strategies and decisions.
Day 1 (3/13) of the agenda will focus on the topic of establishing awareness for security as a priority (Cyber First). Through the "CyberNEXT Forum" and "Security by Design" forums, explore and discuss issues such as emerging threats, paradigm shifts, hardware security design etc. to gain a more holistic view of cybersecurity.
Day 2 and Day 3 (3/14, 3/15) the agenda will focus on Cyber Defense, covering up to 60 different hot topics and technical issues. Through "CyberLAB", well-designed simulation courses, trainees will take part in a step by step attack and defense drill led by industry experts. The Summit committee has further set up "Cyber Taiwan Expo" to focus on demonstrating the independent research and development capabilities of Taiwan's cybersecurity providers.
