GovWare 2022 Full Agenda

GovWare 2023 Temp Background


GovWare FSI Forum (By Invitation Only)

18 Oct 2022
Level 3, Room GW4B | Sands Expo and Convention Centre

GovWare is pleased to feature an additional session “Cyber threat and mitigation realities: Evolution and disruption in organisational landscapes and the challenge to Tech C-suites”. 

This is a by-invite-only track that focuses on the transformational journey organisations in critical infrastructure, particularly FSIs, are undertaking, and the multifaceted hurdles that are surfacing. The day-to-day reality of proactive cybersecurity and the need to secure present and planned operations is complicated not only by technological advancements and the innovation of threat actors but also by an increasingly complex web of regulatory and governance demands. 

This session seeks to explore and better define a sustainable playbook, and to understand how C-suites can position themselves to best deliver and meet current and projected objectives.

Derived and designed by CISOs, the session will feature speakers from user organisations, regulators, and solution providers with field experience.
