The Asia Business Forum: Information Security Risk Assessment and Management (Day Two)

Unfortunately, I missed two sessions yesterday (see note); Mr. Kompol Sontanarat, Director, Information Technology Department, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) presented Managing Risk By Outsourcing Information Security To Managed Services Provider and Mr. Ruangkrai Rangsiphol, Head of Information and Network Security, True Corporation Public Company Limited, shared a Case Study: Overcoming Obstacles To Information Security Risk Assessment: A Critical Key For Security and Compliance.

Today Mr. Somchai Wiwatwattana, Accounting Department Director, Metropolitan Electric Authority opened the day for Mr. Manit Panichakul, Head of IT Audit Division, United Overseas Bank (Thai) Public Company Limited, who presented A Guide to Evaluate Disaster Planning and Emergency Management (DRP) Implementation in Your Organization. 

Next, my dear friend Dr. Viriya Upatising, Chief Technology Officer, True Internet Company Limited presented a Case Study:  IT Security Management Technology and Risk Protection.  Next, Dr. Woraphon Watunyuta, Senior VP, IT Security, Siam Commercial Bank Public Limited, shared his Case Study: Key Strategies for Planning Information Security Policies to Maximize Company’s Investment.

After a great Thai lunch at the Royal Orchid Sheraton on the Chao Phraya River, Mr. Panom Navanukroh, Senior Information Security Consultant, IBM Thailand Company Limited, talked about Successfully Implementing IT Security Strategy in Your Organization; followed by Dr. Sak Segkhoonthod, Director, Government Information Technology Services (GITS), Ministry of Science and Education, who shared his Proven Tactics to Effectively Execute IT Risk Management By Constructing a Structured and Disciplined Approach.

The closing presentation was by Mr. Chaiyakorn Apiwathanokul, Chief Security Officer,  PTT ICT Solutions Company Limited, who presented a Case Study:  Incorporating Strategies and Countermeasures for Phishing Scams.

Note:  Yesterday was amazing.  If you know the traffic in Bangkok, you will agree that it was amazing that I was able to make it to (1) the Asia Business Forum, then (2) to a meeting with a bank across town, and afterwords (3) move to a new serviced apartment, all in one day!
