Engr. Jose Carlos Reyes, Director IV Cybersecurity Bureau of the Department of Information and Communications Technology, opened the session. WRB discussed the different security challenges caused by the pandemic – such as work-from-home arrangements, rapid digital platform adoption and third-party provider engagements – and how organizations can build a robust cybersecurity posture. Members of the panel highlighted the need to strengthen identity and access management, especially in controlling the use of privileged or administrator-level accounts. They also encouraged organizations to shift the focus of their cybersecurity roadmaps to proactively secure emerging technologies such as operational technology and the internet of things.
