The Philippines’ top-line cybersecurity event, PhilSec now backed by CyberSecurity Philippines CERT & WiSAP

MANILA, Jun 8, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – The heightened state of cyberattacks in the Philippines calls for a collective nationwide action on the development and adoption of the latest cybersecurity innovations. While 43% of the private organisations have increased fund allocations to cybersecurity, the Philippines still needs an inclusive platform to accommodate the diverse requirements hailing from both private and public sector.

In tune with the same, the country's most renowned cybersecurity event, PhilSec is coming back to Manila on 4 – 5 July 2023. The platform has made quite a reputation in just a short span of 2 years for attracting the biggest names and leaders from across key Government Bodies, Army and private organisations. Capitalizing on repeated success, this year's edition is going to be way grander as promised by the organizing body, Tradepass.

To encourage the best participation and aid the platform in achieving its desired objectives, CyberSecurity Philippines CERT and Women in Security Alliance Philippines (WiSAP) have confirmed their full support and joined as the Association Partners for the event.

The Chairman & President of Women in Security Alliance Philippines (WiSAP), Mel Migrino after participating in last year's edition had commented, "The way the whole event is planned and organized is actually really nice, it has a very good selection of speakers and the different topics that the event wants to showcase caters to the industry really well." It's perhaps the reason why WiSAP has stepped forward as the Association Partner for PhilSec 2023.

While the 2-day event is going to power some really intriguing sessions on the most innovative, cutting-edge topics taken by cybersecurity's most influential thought leaders, there will also be a third day – 6 July 2023 that is set aside to host the region's most awaited Awards show, PhilSec Awards 2023 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The platform is also going to feature a high-voltage exhibition arena decked up with the most trending, latest cybersecurity solutions that will be projected by the industry's front runners. Organisations that have already reserved their exhibition space include Recorded Future, CrowdStrike, BeyondTrust, Fortanix, Riskrecon, AppSealing, SANS Institute, ThriveDX, Swimlane, Synology, BlueVoyant, Parasoft, YesWeHack, GTIS, Netskope, M.Tech and Symantec.

With the event going to host 700+ pre-qualified cybersecurity delegates, the above mentioned organizations will go all out with their efforts to be on top of their game. These delegates include the top C-suite professionals, policy makers, biggest buyers, heads of various technology divisions and many more key decision makers from the leading public & private enterprises across the Philippines.

One of the key speakers at PhilSec last year who also graced the ribbon-cutting for the same, Mary Rose E. Magsaysay (CICSO, Deputy Executive Director, Cybercrime Investigation and Coordination Center) expressed her amazement at the line-up of cybersecurity solution providers at the platform, "So I was going around the vendors' side and I was surprised to see that there were quite a lot of vendors. I got to talk to a lot of them and they were really different. I haven't heard the kind of solutions they had as they were very unique."

Being the foremost event in the country for cybersecurity, the platform is now looked upon for addressing critical business challenges, forging strategic partnerships and imparting the latest intel on the most pressing topics.

Experiencing the impact and glamour of last year's edition, Mary has once again confirmed her participation as one of the most crucial speakers at PhilSec 2023.

While the charm of the platform has been quite magnetic, resulting in the repeated participation from speakers, Carlos Tengkiat (CISO, Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation) part of the same bandwagon expressed, "PhilSec is actually very good because it brings people together to collaborate and also the industry players to showcase their solutions which can secure our infrastructure and keep us in line with the new developments in technology and security."

Organizer and CEO of Tradepass, Sudhir Jena expressed, "PhilSec 2023 will bring together all the best names from Philippines' cybersecurity under one roof, thereby posing a networking opportunity like none other. Also, considering the enormous response we receive every year for participating at the platform, we are quite confident that this year's edition will power a united front with the public and private sector standing tall against threat actors."

AVIA and CAP Strongly Support the Passage of Legislation to Amend the IP Code of The Philippines to Allow for Pirate Sites to be Blocked in The Philippines

MANILA, May 23, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA) and the Coalition Against Piracy (CAP) warmly congratulate Albay Representative Joey S. Salceda for the passage of his legislation (House Bill 7600) through the House of Representatives to amend the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines to allow for pirate sites to be blocked in the Philippines. To become law in the Philippines a bill needs to be passed by both the House and the Senate and the successful passage of HB7600 through the House is a major step towards the enactment of site blocking legislation in the Philippines.

AVIA and CAP believe Congressman Salceda's Bill will go a long way to addressing the rampant online piracy in the Philippines that is damaging the growth of the Philippines economy as well as providing real harm to consumers. AVIA and CAP have been working with the Philippines Government and the Philippines content industry for some time to champion the passage of site blocking legislation to address this concern, including a number of meetings and workshops such as an anti-piracy seminar hosted by AVIA, CAP and the Globe Group in Manila in September 2022 where Congressman Salceda was the keynote speaker.

2023 figures from a study conducted by YouGov and commissioned by AVIA and CAP showed that almost 60% of Philippine consumers watch pirated content – an alarming number that has a direct impact on the Philippine creative industry and consumer safety.

However, the study also showed growing consumer awareness of the damage caused by piracy, with 90% of consumers believing that piracy has negative consequences for the Philippines. The study also showed a path ahead with 45% of Philippine consumers believing a government or court order for ISPs to block pirate websites would be the most effective measure to reduce piracy in the Philippines. Congressman Salceda's Bill has been strongly supported by local industry with numerous representatives, including GMA Network, Inc., the Globe Group and KROMA Entertainment attending the Second Reading of the HB7600 in person.

Matt Cheetham, General Manager of CAP, noted, "The evidence continues to show that site blocking, when implemented in an efficient and effective way, and ensuring the necessary elements of due process, is an incredibly powerful tool to both stop online piracy and protect consumers from the unseen harm caused by piracy, and we applaud Congressman Salceda for his determination to address the issue." Cheetham also noted that earlier this month, Senator Estrada introduced matching legislation in the Senate (Senate Bill 2150) for Congressman Salceda's Bill. "With the successful passage of Congressman Salceda's Bill in the House, we look forward to the successful passage of matching legislation in the Senate that will allow the Philippines to grow its economy and protect its consumers from online harm," he added.

"The Globe Group congratulates Albay 2nd District Rep. Joey Salceda for steering House Bill No. 7600 towards its triumphant passage at the House. This is a landmark achievement for the creative industry, with the bill a step closer to becoming a law. We are inching closer towards ensuring more stringent protection for our content creators and their livelihood," said Globe Group Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer Yoly Crisanto.

"Piracy not only jeopardizes the livelihood of content creators and other works in the creative industry but also worsens consumer exposure to malware risks. Revisions to the IP code are essential for bolstering a digital landscape that is secure and equitable," she said.

"GMA Network fully supports this extremely important legislation which would benefit and protect not just the creative industry but the viewing public as well. Website blocking for copyright infringement has been proven as an effective tool to fight digital piracy and support legal content creators and services, whether it's TV, film, books, video games, or music. It is about time that the Philippines enact a site blocking law that would help curtail the losses of an already struggling industry," said GMA Network, Inc.'s Asst Vice President for Litigation and Special Projects, Legal Affairs Atty Jose Vener Ibarra.

2023 CAP Consumer Surveys Continue to Show the Benefits of Effective Site Blocking

Singapore, May 15, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – The most recent piracy landscape consumer surveys commissioned by the Coalition Against Piracy (CAP) show that while piracy rates remain stable in many countries around Asia-Pacific, we have seen notable increases in piracy rates in Thailand and Taiwan, with a discernible increase also in Hong Kong. Notably, rights holders face challenges in procuring effective and efficient site blocking in all three of these countries. These consumer surveys acknowledge site blocking as an effective tool to mitigate piracy harm.

For those countries that are implementing site blocking effectively, there continue to be demonstrable effects in behavioral change with 62% of consumers in Indonesia and 64% in Malaysia indicating that they have changed their viewing habits as a result of pirate sites being blocked. Both of these countries have long-running, effective and efficient regulatory blocking regimes. In Singapore, one of the first countries in the region to allow rights holders to protect their content via the provision of judicial site blocking measures, it is notable that after almost ten years of this measure being in place, Singapore has the lowest percentage of consumer piracy in the region, with only 39% of consumers pirating. However there remains issues with the time and cost involved with obtaining site blocking orders in Singapore.

Encouragingly, the surveys show that regular site blocking not only stops consumers accessing pirated content online, but also drives them towards legitimate sources, with an average of 20% of consumers subscribing to paid services and an average of over 40% accessing legitimate free content services as a result of pirate sites being blocked. Furthermore, almost 50% of consumers around the region stated they would subscribe to legitimate paid online services if the content they wanted to watch was not available via a pirate source.

Awareness of the risks associated with online piracy also continues to grow, with at least 80% of consumers in every market around the region unequivocal that piracy has negative consequences. Consumers are aware that the perceived damage varies from job losses, impact on the creative industries and also the risk of malware infection on personal computers and devices.

In addition to consumers accessing pirate content via pirate streaming sites, apps or illicit streaming devices (ISDs), social media and messaging platforms providing access to pirated content continue to be a concern as one of the main sources of accessing pirate content. CAP is working with the major platforms across the region to address this issue.

Encouragingly, the survey also shows huge unmet potential as more than 60% of consumers across the region said they would subscribe to legitimate services if there was no pirate content available on social media and messaging platforms.

Matt Cheetham, General Manager of CAP, noted, "The evidence continues to show that site blocking, when implemented in an efficient and effective way, is an incredibly powerful tool to both stop online piracy, and direct consumers towards legitimate content." As with the 2022 survey, the data points towards an ongoing consumption of pirate content via social media and messaging platforms. However, Cheetham also noted, "The surveys also show the benefits of consumer education with a growing awareness amongst consumers of the negative consequences of piracy, particularly via illicit profiteering and malware."

This is the second time CAP's YouGov consumer surveys were undertaken across several countries at the same time. The surveys will continue to be repeated across the same countries annually, and in doing so, will continue to provide longitudinal analysis of consumer behavioral trends towards piracy and enforcement measures around the region.

SINGAPORE, May 11, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN), a leading global provider of cloud computing platform and solutions, today announced a new partnership with the pioneer of agentless cloud security, Orca Security, to provide Asia Pacific (APAC) organisations with a comprehensive solution to manage cloud threats and maintain strict compliance standards.

This strategic partnership will allow Lumen to expand its security solution for Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) in APAC. The Orca Cloud Security Platform helps increase protection across an attack surface by providing real-time visibility into multi-cloud environments and identifying potential cloud security threats.

As more organisations rapidly transform to operate in the cloud space, their threat landscape expands. The need for a comprehensive security solution to manage vulnerabilities, identities, data protection, and compliance over their entire cloud estate is crucial.

"Customer centricity is at the heart of what we do at Lumen, and we are committed to helping our APAC customers safeguard their critical business data and assets. Cloud is now a strategic digital infrastructure for many organisations, where some have even moved their mission-critical applications to the cloud. With today's fast-changing threat landscape, organisations need to be aware of their digital footprint and how to protect against both external and internal threats," said Francis Thangasamy, Managing Director, Lumen Technologies APAC. "Orca Security is a valuable partner of Lumen in APAC as its cloud security platform complements our current suite of security services. This will bring a stronger value as we can now deliver a more holistic security offering that's proactive in helping our customers to 'see more, stop more'.

Orca Security provides 100 percent, agentless, full-stack, deep visibility into Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud through a single Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). With Orca Security, organisations no longer need to rely on disparate products for cloud workload and data protection, vulnerability management, compliance, or cloud security posture management (CSPM). Instead, Orca Security combines all these capabilities into a single, integrated platform.

"At Orca Security, we view our customer's cloud environment as an interconnected web of assets to be understood and protected. That is why we provide a single-pane-of-glass to detect all cloud vulnerabilities, maintain compliance, and understand which attack paths and combinations of threats pose the greatest business risk," said Gil Geron, CEO and co-founder at Orca Security. "We are excited to work with Lumen Technologies APAC to bring Orca Security's comprehensive cloud security capabilities available to businesses so they can thrive securely in the cloud."

To launch this collaboration with Orca Security, Lumen is offering a free, no-obligation Cloud Risk Assessment – helping organisations assess their cloud security posture and determine where they are most at risk. The assessment will evaluate unsecured data, suspicious activity, vulnerable assets, organisational responsiveness, and authentication configurations.
