Companies are accelerating their moves to digitize their operations. Given this, it is becoming more essential to protect critical data. With the growth of the digital economy and in turn the data that fuels it, effective protection of data is now closely intertwined with the ability of a business to succeed.
According to Verizon’s 2020 Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR), there were 3,950 confirmed breaches, out of 32,500 security incidents worldwide. This is almost double the amount of breaches reported last year and underscores the need for companies to keep improving data security. The threat of a data breach is even more urgent during Covid-19, when working from home is the new normal and companies struggle to fill security gaps created by the need to operate remotely with newly purchased IT assets. Common hazards of remote work include vulnerable wi-fi security, phishing scams and weak passwords.
Join us at AmCham Singapore as Verizon presents the findings of the 13th iteration of the DBIR. Following the presentation, a panel of experts will discuss in further detail how the report impacts various industries and regions, as well as share best practices for companies to stay informed and threat ready.
