    Globe Telecom's culture transformation initiative ran in parallel to the company's $700 million network and IT modernization program that started five years ago.  Globe President & CEO Ernest Cu said, "We believe that any telco can buy or build a new network and partner with the most advanced technology company.  However, it takes a deliberate effort to create a strong culture of collaboration and instill renewed pride and ownership in each of our employees. We owe our successful business turnaround to our people who really made the difference."

    The culture transformation also brought to life the Circle of Happiness philosophy that espouses happy and engaged emplooyees will delight customers by providing a wonderful service experience which creates new business for the company and adds value in shareholder returns. The people and culture initiative had 3 major tracks: strengthening the leadership and talent bench, improving the performance management and rewards and recognition systems, and transforming the organization through the Globe Way Values. Little wonder, the Company's Sustainable Engagement Score got better year on year, jumping to 87% in 2014, compared to 68% in 2009, four percentage points higher than the global high performing norm. This sets a new benchmark even as the company delivered record-high business performance each year for the past five years.

    When the Internet of things was first discussed, the focus was connecting stand-alone appliances, devices and sensors. And as if there was a sprinkle of imagination dust in this industry, it rapidly evolved from connecting into computerisation of things and then to the Internet of Everything. We not only experienced a rapid technology evolution but also a shift in attitudes towards being connected socially and for business. We, as a society, has embraced digitisation and allowed it to permeate into almost every aspect of our daily activities. We find that all things and precious relationships that are important and meaningful to us is operating or have begun to operate on the digital platform.

Customers want and expect access to their services anytime and from anywhere. How are the different industries grappling with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)? What is the impact to an institution under DDoS attack? Are we witnessing an increase in DDoS attacks and their duration? If so, what countermeasures are in place to ensure availability does not suffer?

    Public and private organizations today are faced severe challenges in defending themselves in the changing cyber threat landscape. (ENTER) While there is a fast evolving Dark Web, with capabilities, tools, and techniques that are getting increasingly sophisticated, the defensive capabilities and approaches employed by companies today are out-dated and partly in comparison to what the attacker have. This is further exacerbated by the global deficit of over 1.5 million cyber security talent needed to help defend these organizations. 

    Join us in a session with Mr. Wong as he discusses some of the holistiv and prgamatic approaches we can take to protect our enterprises, as well as our supply chain partners - to ensure that every "link" of our business chain is adequately secure and resilient to keep pace with the changing cyber threat landscape.
