    Episode 332 - Cybersecurity in the crypto world

    Episode 332 - Cybersecurity in the crypto world

    Jane Lo, Singapore Correspondent speaks with Pasi Koistinen, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Coinhako Pasi Koistinen is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of Coinhako, Singapore’s market-leading crypto platform. Pasi drives Coinhako’s information security policies and is responsible for developing and establishing a world-class security framework to prevent, assess, and tackle internal and external threats to the company. Previously he co-founded two cybersecurity companies, Cyber Intelligence House in Singapore and Silverskin Information security in Finland. The companies provide threat intelligence and penetration testing services. Pasi has worked as CISO, and head of security in several companies during his 23 years tenure in the field of cyber security. In this podcast, Pasi shares his views on the cyber threat landscape in the crypto world. He points out that the crypto world is not immune to risks observed in the banking world, such as scams, money laundering, and “old school” malware attacks to steal funds of clients. He also notes that while attacks on crypto wallets and exchanges are notable, threat actors have been targeting the “DeFi” (decentralised finance) area within the crypto world. By exploiting, for example, design and key management weaknesses, and price discovery mechanisms flaws, threat actors have caused significant losses. While the crypto world is facing both traditional “old school” and emerging threats such as those specific to blockchains, Pasi reminds cyber defenders that cyber security is a risk management process requiring a multi-disciplinary approach. He cautions against assuming that “defense always succeed everywhere”, and advises the importance of identifying the company's critical assets, and building layers of defenses around these assets With “people and endpoints being the number primary targets of attacks”, he also advises users to think about how they wish to secure their personal crypto wallets and endpoint devices such as mobile and laptops.  Most importantly, he emphasises that the evolving crypto risk landscape means that “what is considered secure today may not be true tomorrow”. Recorded 27th June 2022 Singapore Time 11am

    Episode 331 - Broadband via Satellite – the technologies and trends

    Episode 331 - Broadband via Satellite – the technologies and trends

    Jane Lo, Singapore Correspondent speaks with Christian Patouraux, CEO, and Founder of Singapore-based Kacific Broadband Satellites Christian Patouraux has over two decades’ experience in the satellite industry. He began his satellite career with SES, initially as a satellite engineer, procuring, launching, testing and operating 12 spacecraft, then as an independent business development consultant, playing key roles in launching broadband businesses, implementing large teleports, deploying airline and maritime broadband, and developing satellite multi-play and IPTV businesses. He went on to develop satellite offerings for new markets in Asia Pacific as head of special projects for MEASAT. Christian was also Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer at O3b Networks, where his work was fundamental to launching the company’s maritime business. In 2013, he founded Kacific Broadband Satellites to bring high speed, low-cost connectivity to remote regions of the Asia Pacific, fostering greater internet usage, fueling economic growth and improvements in service delivery across covered regions. Kacific’s first satellite, Kacific1, was launched into geostationary orbit on the 16th of December 2019. Once operational, Kacific will offer direct internet access, via wholesale channels, to government agencies, institutions, businesses, community groups and households within the satellite's total footprint area. Christian holds a Master of Engineering from the Polytechnic school at the University of Brussels, a Master of Aeronautics / Turbomachinery from the Von Karman Institute, Belgium and an MBA from Insead. In this podcast, Christian shares the latest developments in broadband via satellites, from technology and regulations to trends, with implications for costs and business models. Referencing the Ukraine crisis and Elon Musk’s Starlink, he gives an overview of the key features of a low-earth orbit system (or “LEO”, launched by for example Starlink) and the geosynchronous satellite (or “GEO”), and how Kacific’s GEO satellite delivers affordable high-speed broadband access to the rural and remote parts of the world. Christian also references the Covid-19 pandemic, which highlights to governments the critical need for rural connectivity, and how satellite broadband is able to respond to the challenge and bring communication access to less populous regions.  In addition to emergency access, Christian also summarises the trends in services provided by satellite broadband - including disaster recovery (observed in the Ukraine crisis), backup and redundancy, and the role of satellite broadband in the coming 5G era. In comparing satellites to fiber-optic operators, he clarified that both face similar regulatory requirements. However, satellite broadband addresses certain backhaul challenges faced by fiber-optic operators in a cost efficient way, and hence offers a competitive advantage, in particular for markets in the remote and rural regions. Recorded 23rd June 2022, 3pm (Singapore Time).

    Episode 330 - Sleepwalk to War - Quarterly Essay Review with Hugh White

    Episode 330 - Sleepwalk to War - Quarterly Essay Review with Hugh White

    In this gripping essay, Australia’s leading strategic thinker, Hugh White explores Australia’s fateful choice to back America to the hilt and oppose China. What led both sides of politics to align with America so absolutely? Is this a case of sleepwalking to war? What tests might a new government face? White assesses America’s credibility and commitment, by examining AUKUS, the Quad, Trump and Biden. He discusses what the Ukraine conflict tells us about the future. And he argues that the US can neither contain China, nor win a war over Taiwan. So where does this leave our future security and prosperity in Asia? Is there a better way to navigate the disruption caused by China’s rise? “Canberra’s rhetoric helps raise the risk of the worst outcome for Australia: a war between China and America, in which we are likely to be involved. Over the past decade, and without any serious discussion, Australian governments have come to believe that America should go to war with China if necessary to preserve US primacy in Asia, and that Australia should, as a matter of course, go to war with it.” —Hugh White, Sleepwalk to War Quarterly Essay 86, Sleepwalk to War: Australia's Unthinking Alliance with America was released 27 June 2022. To obtain a copy visit https://www.quarterlyessay.com.au/essay/2022/06/sleepwalk-to-war (https://www.quarterlyessay.com.au/essay/2022/06/sleepwalk-to-war)HUGH WHITE is the author of The China Choice and How To Defend Australia, and two acclaimed Quarterly Essays, Power Shift and Without America.

    Episode 329 - Space Law and Cybersecurity

    Episode 329 - Space Law and Cybersecurity

    Jane Lo, Singapore Correspondent speaks with Dr. P.J. Blount, Lecturer in Law in the School of Law and Politics at Cardiff University. Dr. P.J. Blount (Ph.D., M.S., Global Affairs, Rutgers University; LL.M., King's College London; J.D., University of Mississippi; B.A./A.B.J., University of Georgia) is a Lecturer in Law in the School of Law and Politics at Cardiff University. He has served as an adjunct professor for the LL.M. in the Air and Space Law at the University of Mississippi School of Law. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Luxembourg, an adjunct professor at Montclair State University, and a Visiting Scholar at the Beijing Institute of Technology School of Law. He also completed an industrial fellowship sponsored by the Luxembourg National Research Fund wherein he split his time between SES and the University of Luxembourg research cybersecurity issues relevant to the space industry. Blount’s primary research areas are international space law with a focus on space security and cyberspace law and governance. He has published and presented widely on the topic of space law and has given expert testimony on Space Traffic Management before the U.S. House of Representatives’ Subcommittee on Space. His book, Reprogramming the World: Cyberspace and the Geography of Global Order, was published open access with e-International Relations Press in 2019. He is an editor of the Proceedings of the International Institute of Space Law and was formerly the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Space Law. He currently serves as the Executive Secretary of the International Institute of Space Law and is a licensed attorney with the State Bar of Georgia (USA). In this podcast, Dr Blount introduces the historical and political context of the Outer Space Treaty which was negotiated in 1967. Despite the technological advances since then, Dr Blount argues that the treaty, in his view, is technologically neutral, where the intent is for it to “apply to everything” and “embrace all sorts of technologies”. Nevertheless, technological developments force us to rethink our understanding of security. While cybersecurity adds a layer of complexity, he notes that “cybersecurity laws and regulations are not usually the answer to our problems in cybersecurity”. However, he stresses that, cybersecurity being a risk management process means there are legal implications. For example, for a university Cube Sat, he explains how cybersecurity may play a part in the licensing and authorising process – that is, the extent of cybersecurity and risk management plans could depend on its payload and orbital dynamics. On whether space sector should be designated as a critical infrastructure, Dr Blount advocates for more definitions, noting the potential for burdening such satellites as the educational ones with unnecessary regulations. Where laws provide few details in how to secure assets for space sector operators, Dr Blount suggests that standards such as those developed by NIST for Commercial Satellite Operations serve as actionable guidance. Recorded 27th June 2022, 10am London / 5pm Singapore

How Corporates Might See It

Good clear discussion. Feels that coming from an industry forum leader, few additional words on how inside out perspectives of the corporate have been accounted for could make the book / its review more rounded.
