British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong: Cyber Threats, Active Defense and the Cross-Border Business Impacts

Tuesday, October 17 08:00 AM CST to 09:15 AM CST

Hong Kong

In a connected world, geographical limitations to business transactions are almost non-existent. This also means that there is no geographical limitation to cyber threats, and that all companies are now targets for hacking, ransomware attacks, and theft of sensitive business and consumer information.

At this event, Robert Silvers, a Partner from Paul Hastings’ Washington, D.C. office and the Obama administration's former Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for Cyber Policy, will offer a presentation on the cyber threat landscape and what the most sophisticated companies can do to prepare themselves, including under China’s new Cybersecurity Law.

Scott Flicker, Partner and Chair of Paul Hastings’ Washington, D.C. office, Henny Sender, Chief Correspondent for International Finance at the Financial Times, and Jim Fitzsimmons, Director in the Cyber Consulting team at Control Risks, will then share thoughts on the broader impact that cybersecurity and sensitive technologies are having on how companies in Hong Kong approach overseas investments and ensure their business strategies align with sharper regulatory scrutiny.
