The seminar is jointly organised by 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). With the rapid development of the Internet technology, the variety and popularity of digital devices with internet connectivity such as wearable devices, IP camera, home appliances, etc. have grown considerably in recent years. They improve the operational efficiency of businesses and change the ways people live. However, they also present unprecedented challenges to cyber security and privacy. Both organisations and individuals must understand the risks associated with internet-connected devices, stay vigilant against vulnerabilities and take appropriate security measures to safeguard and protect the devices and data. In this seminar, information security experts will introduce security best practices and share their experience on how to protect information systems and assets, so that everyone can continue to enjoy the convenience and fun brought about by technology.
