RSA Conference, the world’s leading information security conferences and expositions, today announced its line-up of keynote speakers for RSA Conference 2019 Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ). The Conference keynotes will be opened by Mr. Amrin Amin, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Health on Tuesday, July 16,at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center.

The APJ region is home to seven of the top 10 economies with the largest ICT to GDP growth ratio1. As economic growth and people’s lifestyles become increasingly dependent on digital products and services, this year’s keynotes will focus on how everyone – from the C-suites to the frontlines – can ensure a more secure region while collectively continuing to pursue progress.

Some highlights of the keynote line-up include Kyla Guru, a 17-year-old student and internationally-renowned cybersecurity prodigy and entrepreneur, who will share her thoughts on transforming public education systems around privacy and cybersecurity and what she believes should be the mission of all cybersecurity initiatives. Also, a team of global computer forensics and ethical hacking experts from the SANS Institute will deliver unique perspectives on dangerous new cyber-attack techniques and how we can make radical changes to improve the current state of ‘cyber-insecurity’.

The Hugh Thompson Show: DeepFakes and the Human Zero Day will be a highlight on the Conference keynote stage. RSA Conference Program Chair Hugh Thompson will feature special guests – actor and writer Alexis Conran, and top cybersecurity researchers Saurabh Shintre and Dr Vrizlynn Thing. Together, they will discuss what makes humans most susceptible to being manipulated and compromised, how DeepFakes and AI are being weaponized, and how this forever changes defense strategies.

“Driving progress and navigating an evolving cybersecurity landscape come hand in hand. The rise of e-commerce and FinTech in Asia boosts consumption and inclusion but makes us vulnerable to new forms of scams and fraud. Sharper AI algorithms boost productivity but can also be used to make cyber-threats harder to discern. The line-up that we’ve assembled will help us better leverage digital opportunities while managing associated risks. Our goal is to help create a brighter future by highlighting what it takes to become more secure today,” said Linda Gray Martin, Senior Director and General Manager, RSA Conferences.
