[Press Release] HKCGI and PwC jointly released the report 'Cybersecurity – Plugging the hole through testing, policies and training'

Hong Kong – The Hong Kong Chartered Governance Institute (HKCGI), a thought leader in governance in Hong Kong and Mainland China and PwC Hong Kong have released a joint report 'Cybersecurity – Plugging the hole through testing, policies and training', which responds to more than 1,400 responses, it calls attention to critical cybersecurity governance gaps and urges organisations to take immediate action to defend against evolving cyber threats.

"The tendency is ''worrying''", said Mr Kok Tin Gan, PwC Hong Kong Cybersecurity and Privacy Partner. "For organisations, no doubt cybersecurity is one of the top risks. The survey's findings indicate gaps and a lack of focus, potentially due to overconfidence in cyber teams. Testing by certified, qualified personnel is essential, which must include red teaming/ethical hacking."

"The five imperatives are key, from a governance perspective, to address cyber risk in an applied manner," said Mr Ernest Lee FCG HKFCG(PE), Institute President. "The imperatives are effective tools to reduce cyber risk even if there is no one size fits."
