SMEs face the same cyber-security threats as larger organizations, but without the luxury of their budgets or technology teams. Yet, the risks of suffering a cyber-security breach are perhaps even higher and more damaging to an SME organization. This is especially true given recent regulations making businesses responsible for breaches occurring in the data they store.

This panel discussion will summarize the biggest risks to watch out for and give practical tips on how to protect against cyber-attacks and what to do in the event of an attack in terms of:

· Staff education

· Company responsibilities about clients' data and consequences

· The dark web – what it is and what you need to know

· The basics of handling a cyber-attack

The exposition will be accompanied by sharing of 'war' stories and case studies in an anonymous way.

Please be reminded that for this event, all visitors have to be registered with the Concierge Desk located in the IFC lobby at the G/F of Two IFC. Visitors may also be asked to provide a Hong Kong ID Card or Passport when registering to visit the UBS office.
