IBM promised that attendees would leave the briefing better prepared to protect their organisations against evolving threats in the security landscape.

Organised by CIO Asia magazine at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.Key personnel from the new Security Systems unit in IBM updated CIOs and key IT managers on the numerous reports of data leaks, Denial-of-Service attacks, and social Hacktivisim in 2011.

The pace of such attack have continued into 2012.

Traditionally, IBM as well as other large companies have already incorporated security considerations in individual solution domains.

However, IBM has taken the additional step to adopt a holistic approach towards ensuring security for all of their solutions.

Its acquisition of Q1 Labs has provided the tools that integrated the security needs and considerations across the hitherto siloed domains.
