Free Advisory for Organisations: Data hacks & privacy security breaches – can organisations avoid being hit?
Much of the headlines in 2018 were dominated by news of ‘data hacks’ and data security breaches. Singapore also had its fair share – the widely-reported SingHealth cyber breach and the report about members’ information being stolen from the Securities Investor Association of Singapore (SIAS). We also had some changes on how to handle Singapore NRIC information.
Expect to see more reports in 2019 of data breach incidences, changes in data protection laws in the region, as well as breaches that contravene the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), now that it has kicked in.
Avoiding data breaches and the consequent adverse publicity provides organisations with a competitive advantage. It maintains their reputation and fosters trust in them when they collect, use, disclose and store personal data. To achieve and maintain that competitive advantage, organisations must comply with data protection regulations in Singapore – and in the ASEAN region more generally – and must demonstrate their accountability for doing so.
So how do you demonstrate accountability and compliance credibly?
And how do you come to grips with the complexity of cyber security?
It’s commonplace to see cybersecurity incidents described as ‘highly sophisticated attacks’, to see them described as ‘state-sponsored’ … and to feel helpless in the face of the possibility of them happening.We will show you how to identify risks, including risks of data breaches.
Learn how to leverage international best practices, all while using a systematic approach to managing the entire process.
Join Straits Interactive and our partners, Delta Insurance and Menlo Security for this complimentary advisory session on the latest developments and requirements in data protection in the region. It will cover both operational and legal aspects, cybersecurity, cyber insurance and how organisations in Singapore can demonstrate accountability with data protection requirements … all while protecting their reputation and retaining the trust of their stakeholders.
