The breach of PDPA Singapore occurs when organisations become negligent of their obligations under the PDPA. In breaching the PDPA, here are 5 things every organisations should know.
For the longest time, employees have been the constant target of bad actors simply because they have the level of access that could penetrate the organisation’s cybersecurity. This could be in the form of hacking for passwords, phishing, and, the most common, email impersonation scams. In this article, we defined what is an email impersonation, discussed its types, and explained how you protect your business against them.
Bad actors are always lurking. This is why it is important for organisations to be vigilant in protecting personal data. Organisations should always remember that aside from the hefty penalty that the PDPC could impose, the organisation could also lose customers and potential clients in the future in case of a breach.
Setting cybersecurity safeguards and policies may not be enough to prevent a breach. This is because there could be hidden vulnerabilities that cannot be noticed firsthand. With this, when there’s a breach that occurs, organisations must conduct a data breach response to mitigate and stop the breach from incurring more damage to the organisation.
We rely on our smartphones in a day-to-day basis. However, for it to function, it needs to collect our personal data.

Every year, millions of people fall prey to a cyber threat, and you and your staff are no exception. Here are five examples of what malware may accomplish.
Phishing attacks have become a global problem that is seemingly an unbreakable trend, with hackers acting like vultures that are increasingly becoming sophisticated in how they scam people and exploit their vulnerabilities.
