CYBER RISK INSIGHTS
The Cyber Risk Meetup is back! More than 120 members meet regularly every quarter to hear from esteemed industry panels and our Executive leaders. This time, we have joined forces with the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) and we have prepared something very special for all our Cyber Riskers members this July. With the ever changing landscape of our digital world, it is important to continually equip our community with the various aspects of managing Cyber Risks. Cyber Risk can exist in an almost limitless number of forms, ranging from natural disasters, or catastrophic accidental events, to the external malicious and calculated attacks, to even the insider threat or human mistakes.
In this Cyber Risk Meetup's session, we will hear from a number of speakers who have taken the time out to share their observations and experiences. Due to the venue capacity, we can only cap the registrations to 100 pax this time, so RSVP ASAP to avoid missing out!
