Future of Consumer APAC: Confronting complexity in cybersecurity trends for the consumer sector

Cameron Whittfield and Peggy Chow discuss the latest cybersecurity trends for consumer-facing companies including external threats which may include working with third parties and complex supply chains through to the malicious targeting of companies with ransomware, current affairs and social engineering, the cryptocurrency marketplace and geopolitical factors. They emphasise the importance of internal stakeholders speaking the same language when it comes to the intersection of technology and legal risks – and the oversight now expected of board members. The complexity of cybersecurity breach notifications and assessment is also covered in the context of differing requirements of regulators and across jurisdictions.

About the Future of Consumer – Asia-Pacific Predictions series

Rampant digitisation, pressure on ESG, post-Covid upheaval – our video series tackles the big trends in the booming Asia-Pacific consumer sector

Consumer sector companies will not return to pre-pandemic settings – the changes to business models are here to stay. Supply chain reinvention. Online customer service. Remote working. Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. All things digitization.

How fast consumer confidence recovers is different in each jurisdiction, and many countries are now using their recovery plans to push through climate action. And so too for consumer companies building customer trust (and shareholder value) through social capital initiatives.

In this series, our Asia Pacific Consumer Sector team will explore the key issues driving trends in 2022 and share their predictions on those that will have lasting impact for consumer sector companies.
