A very common question I get asked by C-level executives, and most IT-savvy individuals such as young professionals, is obviously “what are the cybersecurity standards or laws that I or our staff/organisation should adhere to?” Here’s the thing, just as on the Internet, Facebook/Messenger/WhatsApp or Instagram legal policy updates creep up on you, standards too...

A tribute to Dr Va

When you take a walk in the garden early in the morning, you will come across some mesmerising flowers that you hope will not wilt. But these flowers cannot last forever, nature takes its cause and the flowers will eventually have to pass on. We can only take photos of it and think of its...
