What is the current situation with respect to cyber security in Hong Kong?  John Bensalhia speaks to Dicky Wong of the Hong Kong Police Force to find out...

Pullout quote:  “Businesses and individuals should keep up to date with the cyber security trends and from time to time should ensure that their defence system is also up to date.”

What is the state of play with the cyber security situation in Hong Kong? Providing answers will be Dicky Wong, detective senior inspector in Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau of Hong Kong Police Force.
“I joined Hong Kong Police Force in 2011,” says Dicky. “I have held several cyber crime-related management positions since 2014. Being in charge of the Collaboration team of the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau (CSTCB), I am now responsible for collaborating with the private and public sectors to raise the awareness of the emerging cyber threats in Hong Kong.”
Prior to this, Dicky also served the District Investigation Team, Technology Crime Investigation Team and took the role of Head of the Cyber Security Centre (CSC) of CSTCB in 2015, at which he was involved in large-scaled cyber-attack cases in Hong Kong.

Dicky is also an INTERPOL accredited trainer in Computer Forensics, Certified Ethical Hacker, Certified Penetration Tester and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Management Economics from the University of Essex in the UK.
“My session will provide an update of the latest cyber security situation and technology crime trends of Hong Kong,” explains Dicky ahead of his appearance at the Cloud Security Compliance & Regulation Theatre.

Dicky will be discussing a wide range of issues relating to this subject. He will kick off with an introduction of the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau before moving on to areas including general technology crime trends and the state of play with respect to cyber security in Hong Kong. In addition to discussions on the latest technology crime trends and the methods of cyber criminals, Dicky will share some notable real life cases that have happened both in Hong Kong and around the world.

With, as Dicky says, the most common cyber security risks to businesses and e-commerce being “data leakage and insider threats”, protection against these can be taken in various ways. And not just through advanced technology solutions. “One fundamental factor is deploying advance technologies to build a high security environment,” he comments. “But we also believe that education and training are other main factors in enhancing people's knowledge in how to deal with cyber attacks. 
Dicky adds that from the outset, it is important for the businesses and individuals to know and accept that cyber attacks do exist and that everyone can be a potential target. “Once they have the mindset, then they should have a well-defined policy within the organisation on how often they should conduct e-security checks and prepare responsive plans and procedures for handling cyber attacks. Moreover, businesses and individuals should keep up to date with the cyber security trends and from time to time should ensure that their defence system is also up to date.”
