Effectively managing and protecting client’s most valuable data against growing...

Cyber Risk that threatens business has increased and become the main concern on agenda of BOD & management. Samjong KPMG Cyber Security Center as outlined in the below key areas serves to defend the customers, the interested party, and management against evolving cyber threats. 



The trend globally is that the laws and regulations have been reinforced to protect personal information and local laws have also expanded the scope of privacy and strengthened corporate responsibilities. In most corporations, personal information is treated extensively and accordingly the management of privacy has become a company-wide problem rather than the responsibility of simply a specific department. Accordingly when an incident occurs this is recognized with extreme seriousness as it is directly related to corporate survival and can cause significant reputational damage.

KPMG Personal Information Service can help corporations to take the appropriate measures to prevent misuse, properly disclose, and with the ongoing management to comply with legal requirements as they obtain and manage personal information.
