What's On

Cyber-attacks pose a major modern threat to many businesses these days. The number of cyber-attacks, their level of sophistication, and the resulting financial and reputational impact continue to increase at an alarming rate. The research firm Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that cybercrime will cost $6 trillion globally by 2021. Earlier in 2019, the former officers and directors of an international search engine company agreed to pay $29 million to settle the charges for their breaching of fiduciary duties in their handling of customer data during a series of cyberattacks in 2013 - 2016. The related challenges faced by companies and their management are becoming more enormous. Successful organisations must be able to identify cyber risks, assess their security control maturity level and maintain good IT governance. In this seminar, speakers will share their knowledge on:

• Latest development of cyber risks
• Associated costs of cyber incidents
• Data breach notification
• Recommended best practices of cyber risk management
• Key elements of information security management system (ISMS) and how it could address cyber risks
