As businesses seize opportunities arising from the digital economy, the need to mitigate cyber risks and avoid penalties for non-compliance with data protection regulations is more critical than ever. Hear from experts who will share insights on how you can address these issues to thrive in the digital future.
Topic 1: Your service provider could be the weakest link!
Speaker: Hoi Wai Khin – Director, Risk Advisory, RSM
A third-party attack occurs when someone gains access to your internal system through an external partner or third-party service provider with access to your systems and data. This changes the attack surface as the attacker exploits the weaker controls implemented at the external partner’s or third-party service provider’s premises.
The risks associated with a third-party attack are gaining more attention due to new types of attacks, growing public awareness of the threats, and increased oversight from regulators. Attackers also have more resources and tools at their disposal than ever before, creating a perfect storm.
Topic 2: Affordable disaster recovery for retail
Speaker: Shaun Lee – Director, IT Consulting & Managed Services, Stone Forest IT
With increasing adoption of cloud services, it is critical for businesses to be well protected against cyberattacks and have contingency plans for unforeseen incidents. This is especially critical in today’s competitive retail environment as minutes of downtime can mean huge revenue losses and lasting damage to one’s brand.
Learn how retailers can leverage the cloud for enterprise-like disaster recovery capabilities and produce a business continuity plan that is more easily managed in less time and with less effort and cost.
Topic 3: Safeguarding intellectual property rights and personal data protection
Speaker: Lionel Tan – Partner, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Practice, Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP
In the fiercely competitive business environment where companies have to face intense business pressure, watch the bottom line, constantly innovate and create new services or products, it is important for firms to be mindful of the legal issues that are directly relevant to their business operations. Safeguarding the intellectual property rights of a business is necessary to ensure that its services or products continue to provide a competitive edge. Legal issues relating to branding, trademark protection, copyright and protection of trade secrets need to be carefully addressed and strategic decisions have to be taken on how to protect them as well as exploit them for commercial advantage.
Alongside this issue of safeguarding intellectual property is the recent emphasis on the protection of personal data. It is necessary to keep up to date with the regulatory landscape underpinning the Personal Data Protection Act in Singapore. While knowledge of customers’ retail preferences may be highly valuable, this necessitates an appreciation of the concomitant obligation of ensuring compliance with data protection regulations.
