Proliferation of cyber attacks

Cybersecurity and data protection have become an integral part of any business. An increasingly connected global economy coupled with the rapid advancement of digital technology has also amplified concerns around the world about the proliferation of cybersecurity threats. With the heightened surge in high-profile cyberattacks and data breaches, data privacy risk management is essential to protect organisations from potential cybersecurity threats which could result in severe reputational and financial losses. Many organisations are encountering this new scourge, and operate in the expectation that there will be many more and varied attacks as Singapore fortifies its reputation as a Smart Nation.
