The organizers of the 2020 Black Hat Asia conference have revealed the keynote speakers for this year’s virtual event. Black Hat Asia is set to run from September 29 to October 2.
The first of the two speakers is Brigadier General Gaurav Keerthi, who manages Singapore’s cybersecurity infrastructure as the Deputy Chief Executive of the country’s Cyber Security Agency. Keerthi is scheduled to speak at 9am SGT on Thursday, October 1, and will address the challenges that Singapore has faced as it tries to implement Smart Nation technology. In doing so, he will place a particular focus on the lessons learned from cars and sanitation.
The second speaker is Daniel Gruss, an Assistant Professor at Graz University of Technology who will speak at 9am SGT on October 2. Gruss will argue that the growing complexity of the digital ecosystem is making it more difficult to maintain current security levels.
In addition to the two keynotes, Black Hat Asia will feature nearly 40 other Briefings that detail a number of different security concerns. Topics will include Wi-Fi vulnerabilities, ZombieLoad data leak attacks, and the privacy issues associated with the collection and use of biometric data by governments and businesses in the APAC region.
