ISOG launched the '2019 I Am Secure Cyber Security Awareness Month'


Committed to protect the Philippine financial industry by strengthening cyber security, the Information Security Officers Group (ISOG) launched its month-long campaign last Oct 8, 2019 at Makati Shangri-la Hotel. The organization, gathered local and international delegates, high-calibre professionals: CISO’s, CEO’s, CIO’s, CTO’s, VP’s, and the like, mostly comprised of the financial and banking sectors, as well as representatives from private enterprises, government officials, and other industries whose core business is to enforce information security practices among their institutions. With the group's dedication to counter cybercrime, they continue their commitment to promote a culture of Information Security to the entire Philippine landscape they secure this annual summit.

This year’s national cybersecurity month’s awareness campaign built around the theme of I Am Secure 2019: Industry 4.0, with a notable tagline of “Information Security Professionals in the Midst of the Digital Tsunami.” Our country being on the brink of a global phenomena, facing grand-scale changes that influence our everyday lives, communication, and consumption of goods—technology-wise. ISOG believes that updating their fellow security officers, about innovative models, frameworks, and alternative sources in response to the 4th industrial revolution is a pressing concern. The conference presents a collaboration of great minds and ideas to prepare the Philippines in being adaptable to the changing times, not disregarding dealing with cybercrimes.

In the era of Digital Tsunami, systems all over the world connect and collide: Automation, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, big data, and system integration are all becoming a norm. As organizations navigate through these technological complexities, it is crucial to be secured. ISOG engages associate security officers to strengthen cybersecurity across banking and related industries; establishes standardization of measures in coordination with financial regulators, policy creators, and colleagues; equips the industry with novel methodologies and skill sets significant to information security’s purposes; and seeks to empower Filipinos, by creating education awareness campaigns concerning online and digital transactions.

The month will definitely be very busy for the group as they prepare and present several culminating activities on top of their online and session campaigns.
