At this year's conference, more than 80 percent of the sessions - including keynotes, conference tracks and workshops - are by experts from vendor organizations. Last year's event, in contrast, had more sessions by practitioners. It appears that this year, the conference is showcasing the latest security innovations.

Hot Sessions

The conference encapsulates all aspects of information security - devices, platforms, data science, law enforcement, business strategy, security and attack patterns.

The tracks delve into cloud, mobility, IoT security, and efraud and law enforcement, among other topics, with practical demonstrations of techniques.

The global perspectives track offers insights into best practices and steps organizations can use to understand security risks. A track on security strategy and data security features sessions on policy, planning, enterprise security architecture and business issues. The threat and threat actors track shares insights into new classes of vulnerabilities, the changing threat landscape, the dark web and remediation. And the "learning lab," the most interesting and interactive session, showcases real-time breach or attack incidents.

K. Shanmugam, Singapore's minister for home affairs and minister for law, inaugurates the conference.

Here's a sampling of some of the can't-miss sessions:

ISMG's Asia team will be at the event bringing you frequent updates, as well as interviews with Schneier of Resilient Systems; Zulfikar Ramzan, CTO of RSA; Alex Holden of Holding Security; Chris Coryea of Lockheed Martin and others.
