Webinar: How Cyber Resilient Are You?

Webinar

TIME: 23 Jun 2020 - 2:30pm - 4pm
POSTED ON: Tuesday 02 Jun 2020 RHT Compliance Solutions

 

In the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, businesses everywhere are rapidly promoting remote access and availability of services online to continue operations. We are also seeing a corresponding rise in cybersecurity incidents as criminals exploit unpatched security vulnerabilities and lax security procedures.

 

A 2018 IMF framework study which estimated potential losses due to cyber-attacks using a data set from 50 countries, suggested that average annual potential losses from cyber-attacks may be close to 9 percent of banks’ net income globally, or around $100 billion.  With recent increase in online activity due to COVID-19, cyber attacks would have escalated and the loss figure could be double or triple the 2018 estimates.[1]

On 6 August 2019, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) issued a Notice on Cyber Hygiene to strengthen cyber resilience in the financial industry. The requirements include key elements in the existing MAS Technology Risk Management (TRM) Guidelines and measures that financial institutions must take to guard against increasing risk of cyber threats.

The Cyber Hygiene Notice is legally binding and is applicable to relevant entities that are licensed, approved, registered or regulated by the MAS.

Join a multi-disciplinary team from RHTLaw Asia and RHT Group of Companies as we discuss these requirements in the first of a series of Technology Risk Management webinars designed to help you understand and identify the digital risks facing your organisation.
