TOPICS

Digital Transformation – What You Need to Know
Eileen Tan, Executive Director, Stone Forest IT

One of the main reasons why SMEs are unable to transform digitally is lack of knowledge on how to do so even if they are keen. This session will shed light on Singapore’s ABCs approach to digital transformation and showcase how local SMEs have successfully embraced technology and transformed their businesses.


The 5 Steps to Cyber Crisis Management – Forewarn, Respond, Engage, Activate & Rebuild
Tham Kok Wing, Independent Consultant

Adequate protection against and containment of digital-related crises call for the predictive ability to forewarn and spot tipping points based on analytics drawn from intelligence gathering and the monitoring of digital and social realms. Equally critical are well-coordinated responses, real-time tracking and appropriate activation of assets after the attack. All these require a great deal of forethought and preparations to undo the damage.


Effective Technology Risk Strategy 101
Hoi Wai Khin, Director, Risk Advisory, RSM

Even as cybersecurity remains at the forefront of board agendas, most directors express frustration and challenges with technology risk oversight. Learn from recent data breaches and what it takes to ensure that your technology risk programme is able to balance security and resilience requirements with your organisation’s strategic objectives and risk appetite.


Data Protection & Cybersecurity Woes
Steve Tan, Partner & Deputy Head, Technology, Media & Telecommunications, Rajah & Tann

As regulations on privacy and personal data increase, many SMEs are caught off guard and have been found to be in breach of the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA). So how do SMEs stay compliant and effectively handle cybersecurity and data protection concerns? Be up to date on the latest data protection laws locally and abroad and learn how to navigate the legal and practical challenges that SMEs face from the rapidly evolving laws and technology landscape.


Smart SMEs – Importance of Data Analytics
Adrian Tan, Partner & Industry Lead, Technology, Media & Telecommunications, RSM

Data, analytics and insights. As social, mobile and cloud technologies become more prevalent, these words are thrown around a lot. Is data analytics valuable only for big businesses? Can SMEs benefit as well? This session will focus on how SMEs can leverage data analytics to improve operations, gain customer insights and identify new business opportunities.


Driving SME Growth with Cloud
David Tang, Enterprise Channel Director, Microsoft

Cloud adoption has moved from a top trend to become a real business need today. Many early cloud adopters have been trumpeting the proven benefits of agility and overall growth. However, misconceptions about cloud migration and security often form roadblocks that keep SMEs from realising the true benefits of cloud technology. Learn how to separate the myths from the facts, understand the technical and cost considerations and gain tips for a successful journey to the cloud.
