Private Sector, Gov't to Unite to Secure Cyber Commerce


Companies operating Internet commerce require cyber security measures to reduce their vulnerability to theft of intellectual properties, disruption of business operations, deletion of computer files, and corporate espionage through hijacking of domain names.

Among those open to attacks by corporate spies and cybercriminals are companies that spend millions for cyber infrastructures to transmit data and information such as outsourcing companies, banks and financial services firms, petrochemical factories, power companies, retailers and exporters, manufacturers, logistics companies, aviation and shipping firms and government agencies.

Safeguarding businesses, however, need cooperation of both the private and public sectors if they and the international community are to defend cyber infrastructures against denial of service, viruses, malwares, phising, botnets, and spam.

One key measure of the National Cyber Security Council to coordinate private and public sector efforts to counter cyber terrorism and safeguard cyber infrastructures is the holding of the conference PROTECT 2008: Doing Business Amidst New Threats III. This will be held on March 6-7, 2008 at the Hotel Intercontinental, Makati.

The event is intended for CEOs, CFOs, CSOs, CIOs and government authorities responsible for promoting security and safety of the business environment.
