#TechPH - Trend Micro’s DECODE 2022: Detect & Respond sees record 2200 registered participants

A leading provider of cybersecurity services, Trend Micro, recently held its yearly cybersecurity conference online, DECODE 2022: Detect & Respond, drawing the highest audience since the event's inception in 2017.

The free cybersecurity conference, which was held from November 28 to 29, 2022, was attended by eminent speakers who were well-equipped with years of expertise in their specialized industries and who were committed to empowering Filipino cybersecurity experts. The focus of this year's topic, Detect & Respond, was on critical procedures for spotting and countering cyberthreats and attacks in a variety of fields, from law enforcement to mobile payment systems to well-known games like Genshin Impact.

Six keynote addresses were delivered during the conference by Jay Yaneza, director of global operations for Trend Micro, Charmaine Valmonte of Aboitiz Group, Shane Cross of INTERPOL's Cybercrime Threat Response Sub-Directorate, Lauren Seawright, an FBI Intelligence Assistant Legal Attache (ALAT) assigned to the US Embassy in Manila, Anton Bonifacio of Globe Group Philippines, and Ryan Flores, senior manager of Trend Micro's Forward-Looking Threat Research team.

“As hackers and scammers are now utilizing more sophisticated methods to access private information and data, cybersecurity awareness remains an urgent area of concern across various organizations, including the government. It is with efforts such as DECODE that we are able to introduce and reinforce the significance of security in this digital age,”
shared Ryan Flores, Senior Manager of Forward-Looking Threat Research at Trend Micro. 

Participants received information on what to expect in the cybersecurity landscape in 2023 as well. Discussions from more than 40 sessions varied from case studies to the intriguingly comparable setup that cybercriminal organizations have with conventional firms, including start-up, mid-level, and big levels of operation. Additionally, speakers addressed various strategies employed by Trend Micro itself, combining complex data processing tools, as well as their own personal encounters with malware, phishing scams, new phishing approaches, and even potential hazards concealed by captchas.

As part of Trend Micro’s advocacy of promoting diversity in the cybersecurity workforce and uplifting women in tech and IT specifically, participants also got to hear from Luna Javier, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Altitude Games, and Myrtle Ann Ramos, Founder and CEO of Block Tides as guest speakers for the Get IT Girl! segment of the conference. The two discussed their experiences in the industry following the theme “Women in Tech: Navigating the Metaverse” and shared a message of encouragement for the audience. 

This year’s conference saw 1000 more participants than the record 1200 from DECODE 2021, and over 800 student participants. Students in attendance were also treated to a session specifically for them, led by Erwin Dusojan, Trend Micro’s Senior Threat Researcher. 

“We hope that, with DECODE 2022, we are able to once again showcase how Trend Micro is truly engineered to do good with our consistent efforts to bring together and empower the local cybersecurity community,” added Flores
