Monday, 8 December

The Security Executive as Business Leader

Does the C-suite understand the value that the security department provides to the organization? Security executives need to provide the corporate leadership team with a clear value proposition of the security department. In these presentations, senior security executives will discuss how to create a risk-driven approach, and provide some strategies for proving security’s value to the C-suite.
Panelists: Anthony Lee, Senior Director Security & Facilities AP & ME, Ingram Micro Asia Pacific, Singapore;
Leonard Sng, Manager International Security, Asia Koch Industries Inc., Singapore;
Munies Pillai, Chief Editor-TAPA newsletter, TAPA Asia

Using Your Intelligence Against You

Criminals and terrorists use intelligence the same way that governments, law enforcement, and private companies do. This session will explore the way that intelligence about an organization is collected, analyzed, and exploited by these unlawful groups, and discuss some possible means of protection.
Speaker: Paul Burke, National Security Leader, Middle East & Africa, IBM Middle East, UAE

Tuesday, 9 December

Supply Chain Security in Asia

Moving supplies across Asia can be challenging as well as risky. This presentation will provide a look at those risks and challenges and discuss some ways in which businesses can address them.
Speaker: Jason Teo, Senior Director Business Continuity, Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific, and Chairman, TAPA Asia, Singapore

Emerging Risks across Asia

The risk of a resurgence in Islamic militancy is rising around the region, from Southeast Asia to China to India and Pakistan. As this risk increases, so too does the risk for businesses that have operations in the region. This session, tailored for senior security executives, will look at where the threats will be greatest and what they may mean for multinational companies.
Speaker: Tim Williams, Managing Director, Stirling Assynt, UK
