Build a Secure Cyberspace 2022 “Fact Check After Receiving, Think Twice Before Sharing” Webinar cum Folder Design Contest Award Ceremony

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO), the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF) and the Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre (HKCERT) jointly organise an information security webinar.

However, it is not an easy task to determine the authenticity of the overwhelming information. Criminals may also spread fake information or scams through online platforms to deceive users. Therefore, we should stay vigilant to the information online and handle it with care to protect ourselves and others.
In this webinar, cyber security experts will explain how to protect our online information, and also provide useful tips to help organisations and the public to defend against cyber attacks and beware of false information online.
You are cordially invited to participate in the webinar. The details of the event are as follows:

Distance business, work from home, distance learning and online shopping have become the “new normal”. With the wider use of information technology, the threat of cyber attacks cannot be overlooked. Hence both enterprises and individual must raise their awareness of information security with preventative measures in place so that the community can effectively respond to the increasingly sophisticated and complex cyber attacks.
