Speaker Event: Cyber Firefighting in Asia (15 Sept, Tue)

Cyber security is top-of-mind for risk managers around the world, but many businesses in Asia fail to take cyber security seriously until they become victims themselves. What are the risks, how high are the costs, and what can businesses do to prepare? Who would you call if you fell victim to a breach? Whether you're a hedge fund manager, law firm, operating critical infrastructure, or managing corporate operations in Asia, all businesses—especially data-rich firms with high value at risk—should know how to protect themselves.

Join us for a conversation with Mr. Gene Yu, Co-Founder and CEO of Blackpanda for insights on cyber security from the perspective of APAC-focused digital forensics and incident response specialists.
