The conference will explore the realm of emerging technologies that are reshaping industries, such as AI, quantum computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), in addition to cyber security, privacy and Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC). Attendees will explore how these technologies are already influencing various sectors and discuss strategies to secure them against evolving hazards and threats.

"Future is Now" acknowledges the changing dynamics of the cyber security workforce. The event will focus on developing the skills and knowledge required for the future workforce, including fostering diversity and inclusivity to address the industry's talent shortage.

Our 2024 theme emphasises the importance of forming strong partnerships and information sharing to collectively enhance cyber resilience. The complex cyber challenges that require collaborative efforts between governments, industries, academia and individuals will also be addressed.

"Future is Now" compels participants to recognise that the future they envision is already unfolding before their eyes. By embracing the digital era's opportunities and challenges, attendees will gain insights and strategies to secure the digital landscape for both today and tomorrow.

Through collaborative knowledge-sharing, innovative solutions and a commitment to cyber security, this conference will contribute to a safer and more resilient digital future.
