During the event, Mr. Kok Tin Gan, PwC Cyber Security and Privacy Partner, delivered a keynote speech, providing an overview of the network threats in 2023 and giving attendees insights into the latest trends and cutting-edge technologies in network security. He pointed out that ransomware organizations are becoming increasingly sophisticated but still largely opportunistic in their choice of targets. Network threat incidents in 2023 include Faust leveraging the Fortinet SSL VPN vulnerability to deploy ransomware on shipping companies and spy threat actors exploiting Citrix ADC and gateway vulnerabilities to compromise charitable organizations. These threats not only cause significant economic losses to businesses and individuals but also severely damage their reputations and customer trust. Therefore, enterprises and individuals should strengthen security training and technological prevention, keep systems up to date, and adopt multi-layered security measures.

Mr. Kenneth Ma, a corporate member of the association, and Senior Vice President of Green Radar Limited, gave a speech on the topic of "Immune to email phishing with AI" and highlighted that email phishing is a common method of network attack where attackers impersonate legitimate users' email addresses and use various means to entice users to click malicious links or download viruses, thereby stealing personal information or compromising system security. Therefore, enterprises need to actively address the threats of email phishing by enhancing the security of email systems through the adoption of AI technology to protect customer privacy and company interests.
