About the Conference

The Law Society’s Cybersecurity & Data Protection Conference is back! This follows the inaugural event in 2018, and is brought to you by the Cybersecurity and Data Protection Committee. The conference is most timely given recent local and regional developments in laws on cybersecurity and data protection, not to mention the pace of change and important developments in law and practice.

This 1-day conference offers legal practitioners, compliance experts and technologists opportunities to discover latest developments in the law, practice of cybersecurity, compliance strategies, and perspectives on managing multi-jurisdictional challenges in today’s connected world.

The conference will open with a Keynote Address by Dr Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information, followed by plenary sessions which will cover the following areas:

  • The rise of opportunities and challenges in respect of cross border data flows;
  • Governance issues that arise from the use of blockchain transactions;
  • Cybersecurity governance in the world of a Zero Trust Environment framework;
  • The Metaverse, and the frontiers they pose to data protection and cybersecurity issues, as well the economy and legal challenges of operating and interacting in the Metaverse; and
  • An updated and informed look at the role of lawyers in navigating cyber incidents, and working with in-house counsel, and infosecurity teams.
