In this digital era, no one can neglect cyber threats, regardless of whether your organization is multinational, SME or startup. The objective of hackers these days is to control your devices (computer/laptop/mobile) so that they can capitalize on your sensitive data for monetary returns or control your device for malicious means such as Bitcoin mining. In a nutshell, all devices and data are valuable to hackers. Hence it is important that you pay attention to safeguarding cybersecurity in your personal and working life.
What is the best way to protect your organization’s digital assets and personal data these days? On 25 April 2019, Embrio hosted a seminar on Cyber and Data Security in Event Hall of DCSG (Data Centre SG) and invited 4 industry experts to share how you can protect your company assets from Cyberattacks.
The first issue is about free public WiFi. They are fast, ubiquitous, convenient, and they save you from consuming your limited monthly data plan. But is it safe? After the opening speech from Embrio’s managing director Mr. Cedric Lim, our first speaker Mr. Kok Rie Ooi, who is CISSP certified and the sales director of Embrio, talked about how we should deal with the threats from public wireless access.
Here are the 5-Don’t and 4-Do policies that Kok Rie suggested our audience should take note of.
The second speaker is Mr. Adrian Oey, Head of Managed Security Services from Embrio. He talks about the focus on our government law on cybersecurity.
One of the important points is that whatever you and your company share online, you should observe the policies of PDPA in Singapore. Otherwise, the penalties can be more severe than what you can expect.
Our third speaker Mr. Clement Leong from CloudSquire shared with the audience on how to prevent phishing via emails and websites.
Last but not least, Mr. Chee Wah Chong from TreeBox Solutions introduced to the audience how to create secure mobile communication. Nowadays, as everyone uses WhatsApp, Line, Telegram, etc. in their daily lives, it also poses a threat to your company’s cybersecurity and data.
If you have any questions about how to go about establishing policies that comply to PDPA, measures you can take to secure your organization against malicious attacks, anti-DDOS, etc, please feel free to reach out to our sales team at 6289 9828 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
