|CyberSecurity and Government funding for SMEs|
||Forum (30 June 2020)|
Cyberattack incidents in Hong Kong have been skyrocketing in recent years, with companies and residents losing more than HK$2 billion in the first nine months of 2018. According to a survey conducted by Chubb Insurance, more than 75% of Hong Kong SMEs fell victim to cyberattacks. Despite this, cyber awareness still remains low, and the importance of network protection is still overlooked. A third of the SMEs reviewed their security protection but took no action to prevent another attack. Nearly 30% of cyber incidents experienced by SMEs took the form of data loss through system malfunctions and technical faults, while 24% were caused by human error.
So what can businesses do to prevent from being attacked and what governmental schemes can apply for to get subsidies and funding?
In this webinar, the speakers will highlight recent cyber incidents and cyber trends in 2020, sharing Cybersecurity Tips and Risk Mitigation and introducing an affordable solution for SMEs. They will also introduce some government funding schemes available for the businesses, along with application details.
