In today’s chat, we are joined by Matthias Yeo, CEO, Fund Technologies Pte Ltd. Matthis is one of three judges responsible for naming the winner at this year’s inaugural Launch Pad Event (for which we are the exclusive media partner!).

Event Description: RSAC Launch Pad is designed to give early stage startups a platform to share their brilliant industry solutions. Three participants will compete in a Shark Tank®-style format to try to convince panel of venture capital investors and CISOs that their product has strong potential for success. The winner will receive a kiosk at the RSA Conference 2020 USA Early Stage Expo that could propel their company to the next level.

These are some of the topics we discussed:

  • What the state of innovation in cybersecurity looks like in the APAC region

  • What innovative technologies are disrupting the market in general

  • The connection of the human element with technology; how do regional and governmental-specific cultures influence and impact the ways in which we educate, train, and establish a culture of cybersecurity within society and organizations in return

  • What role does government play in ensure cyber safety in the digital world

  • The ability for a startup to move beyond delivering innovative technologies to delivering impactful solutions that can be operationalized in the business and consumer environments

We are thrilled to have this chat with Matthias to learn more about his vision for the inaugural event and look forward to meeting him and the other judges as we cover the event during RSA Conference 2019 APJ on Wednesday, 17 July from 17.30 – 19.00 in the Orchid Room #4205.

We hope to see you there. But first, we hope you enjoy this chat with Matthias!
