Event Description

Cyberrisk is a CEO-level issue – how Cyberresistant is your organisation?

McKinsey reports that organisations worldwide are not “sufficiently protected” against Cyberattacks and estimated that Cyberattacks would cost the global economy $ 3 trillion by 2020.

British Business spend $ 52 billion a year defending against cyber attacks.

More than 70% of cyber attacks are driven purely by cybercrime.

Vietnam has no Cybersecurity national strategy and rates only 76 (out of 193 countries) in the Global Cybersecurity Index and 8th in ASEAN ahead of Laos and Cambodia but behind Myanmar.

Even hosting your website outside Vietnam does not necessarily give you any greater protection.

Our initial survey results indicate what many Cybersecurity experts have known for years, companies in Vietnam are not sufficiently protected as is evidenced by the number of successful Cyberattacks conducted against them.

Our event will highlight the real risks of Cybersecurity together with real case studies of how Cybercriminals are successfully attacking your website and our speakers and panel will give some expert advice on how to make your organisation more Cyberresistant.

Don’t forget to get your webmaster to complete our survey whose purpose is to provide empirical evidence of the gap to website security best practices
