Cyber Security: Do you want to be the next one fined because of GDPR? 

Did you know that you can be under the threat of being fined due to the GDPR even if your company is based in APAC? Come and hear from our experts and discover how you can avoid such an outcome. 


The risks from hacking, and demands of regimes such as the GDPR, are putting ever-greater responsibilities and pressure on companies. Failure to address them can lead to financial losses, loss of customer confidence and even fines! When it comes to a potential cyber-attack on your business it is not a matter of 'if' but 'when'.

In these seminars you will learn how to discover risks, identify attacks and prepare your business for the impact of the GDPR. You will also learn the importance of ensuring connected devices are tested for GDPR compliance and there will also be opportunities to discuss all matters relating to cyber security with our experts and with attendees from other companies and industries.

We will examine the many aspects of the GDPR more closely and will gain an understanding of what is required for compliance. Also included is a hands-on workshop where you can see more closely what is involved in GDPR device testing and gain a more thorough understanding of the processes.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone with a responsibility or interest in cyber security and particularly GDPR conformance

What is the GDPR? 

Does your company manufacture connected devices? Do you regularly use connected devices? Then having an understanding of – and complying with – the GDPR could be essential to your business. 

The GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation  – establishes the new legal framework for personal data protection in the EU and it applied to all businesses trading with EU countries. The GDPR is designed to safeguard and strengthen the rights of data subjects (persons of whom personal data is processed), to better enable them to take control of their data in an increasingly digital society. Substantial fines and penalties can be imposed on companies for non-compliance. So, if your business deals where the GDPR applies, you must comply.
