Alumni Seminar on Information and Data Leakage: Threats and Risk Mitigation

UMAA is pleased to invite its members to a session, featuring senior academics from the University of Melbourne, on cyber security that is highly relevant to today's business environment.

Please register your interest by RSVP to this email address at by 13 July 2017 (Thursday). Seats are limited.


Information leakage can have a devastating effect on businesses. Designs, marketing strategies, customer lists, active tender proposals – the loss or leakage of such sensitive information can have huge ramifications if it falls into the wrong hands. Risk mitigation relies heavily on archaic methodologies that lack the ability to identify critical knowledge or ‘know-how’ that drives business performance and do not provide sufficiently broad coverage to capture many critical information assets used in routine business practice.

In this session, our panelists will examine issues surrounding information leakage in the modern work environment, outline strategies to improve security and discuss legal implications of information leakage.

Panelists: Dr. Sean B Maynard, Dr. Atif Ahmad, Adlin Abdul Majid, Bahari Yeow

Date: 25 July 2017 (Tuesday)

Time: 4pm or 630pm (there are 2 available sessions, please indicate your preference)

Venue: Level 6, Menara 1 Dutamas, Solaris Dutamas, No. 1 Jalan Dutamas 1, 50480 Kuala Lumpur

Fee: Complementary - on a first come first serve basis as seats are limited
