Cybersecurity and IT Risk Management (SCPD19093001)​

Course outline

In today’s cyber threat landscape, every company, no matter large or small, is at risk for an attack. Small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) are becoming the focus of attack due to their lack of protection of data and cyber assets. SMEs may not have expertise and resources to build a sophisticated network, develop and implement policy and procedure to handle the attack and their corresponding incidents. The loss or damage of any piece of customer data can cost a big amount in terms of either money or business opportunities. Moreover, any leakage of customer personal data resulting in unauthorised use by a third party may even lead to loss of business and more seriously, could lead to legal action against your company.

This module will highlight important areas of concern for SMPs and provide insights of industrial and technical guidelines to help building a trustworthy and secured company.

What you need to know about cybersecurity for SMEs in Hong Kong:
• Understand the scope of cybersecurity
• The rules and regulations SMPs should know and how to protect your customer data
• Risk management of IT services

​• SME cybersecurity resources in Hong Kong
