Seminar: Web Security Starts from Health Check

Website is an important tool for businesses to promote service, handle customer relationship management and provide online transaction services. However, some enterprises, especially Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) do not possess resources to secure the websites. Recently, the website of a Hong Kong company was hacked, resulting in the leakage of over 5 million global customer records. The incident became the headline of international news media. The financial impact and damage of reputation to that company was enormous. Therefore, companies should take a serious look at the security of their websites.


In this seminar, Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre (HKCERT) and security experts will discuss the current web security threats and the “SME Free Web Security Health Check Pilot Scheme” project which promotes the "Check - Act - Verify" approach for web security.

The details of the seminar are as follows:
