On the 1st of December 2016,  the Financial Services Committee together with the ICT Committee have the pleasure of hosting a session on:

How Can Corporates and Financial Institutions Fight Cybercrimes Together“.


For a special session, EuroCham brings together expert practitioners from the Private sector and law enforcement in order to provide attendees with practical insights and raise awareness on how to foster collaboration between industry and government. How can government and industry work together to respond to these threats? 

Main issues to be addressed during the session include the ongoing research into the key technology and industry cybersecurity challenges to be expected and how cyber-security measures can be taken in our interconnected world. In particular, panelists will address the need to be secured and explore the ecosystem and infrastructure in place and what are some of the common high crimes investigated by Singapore Police Force?


Aiming at raising awareness, the session will explore finding best ways to achieve cross regulatory collaboration and how can EuroCham be a key facilitator in such an environment. 


Mr. Boon-Hiong Chan, Vice Chairman of the Financial Services Committee and Head of Market Advocacy at Deutsche Bank AG Singapore, will be the moderator in this discussion.
