Cyber Security Risks in the Era of COVID – 19

Reputational and legal strategies for businesses in Myanmar

The era of Covid-19 has forced many of us to digitalise overnight, placing cybersecurity vulnerabilities in sharper focus than ever before. In these uncertain times, one thing is certain – the unscrupulous actors will exploit cybersecurity weakness for their own gain, launching phishing attacks, stealing data, spreading fake news, and impersonating businesses.

It's a challenge everywhere, but especially in Myanmar, where many businesses have been forced to move online before they are ready. As companies go virtual and online transactions reach a high-point, many may not have fully protected systems to defend themselves or the communications and legal plans to respond in the event of a breach. When data is hacked and customers trust is broken, the damage can be severe both reputationally and legally. Are Myanmar businesses ready for this?

Join our webinar where experts will talk about imminent reputational and legal risks of cyber-attacks during the pandemic. You will also be provided with strategies on building resilience to help companies deal with such a crisis when it happens or prevent it happening in the first place.
