Duration

2 Days

 

Overview

As work becomes increasingly intertwined with personal lives, cybersecurity is no longer just a technology or business issue but a real personal concern. Digitalisation and IOT (Internet of Things) is redefining how we live, work, socialise and spend / consume as information, finances, social networks and services are digitised and connected.  This has created enormous opportunities and convenience while exposing businesses and individuals to unprecedented threats that have strategic, financial, operational and reputational implications.  It is critical that individuals, especially non-IT professionals, understand the real risks involved and take the necessary preventive measures to protect themselves and their companies against these “invisible enemies”.

Through a series of live demonstrations, participants will be shown how easy it is to fall prey to identity stealing, privacy invasion, social engineering, fraud, email forgery, hoaxes, modern virus and backdoor approaches to the advanced persistent threats that continuously plague our various personal digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers and even smart TVs and personal access cards etc.
