Recent cyber breaches at major corporations and government agencies have highlighted the increasing sophistication, stealth, and persistence of cyber-attacks which organisations are facing today – from nation-states, organised crime, and hacktivists, as well as threats from within the organisation (which often poses the greatest risk). A total of 1.5 million SingHealth patients’ non-medical personal data were stolen, and 160,000 of them had their dispensed medicines’ records taken as well, according to MCI and MOH. Their personal data such as name, NRIC number, address, gender, race, and date of birth were stolen along with Prime minister Lee Hsien Loong’s personal data. With the lack of cyber security practices in Singapore, Singaporeans are worried as their stolen personal data has the possibility of targeted phishing attacks at a later date. Demand for improved cyber security is ever growing. This course aims to educate executives in the field of cyber security, how to prevent future data breaches and actions to take.

Our Biggest Challenge: How to Prevent and Respond Swiftly to Data Breaches

If the most robust defence system in Singapore can be infiltrated, how can businesses including SMEs deal with this challenge of protecting their information systems and digital assets – financial information, customer data, intellectual property – and the reputational and regulatory implications of failing to do so continue to raise the stakes of cyber security and governance. Investors and regulators are increasingly challenging boards to step up their oversight of cybersecurity and calling for greater transparency around major breaches and their impact on the business.
