The Edward Snowden
case has highlighted the urgent need for companies, organizations, and
government departments in Hong Kong, to ensure that world class cyber security
is in place. It's easy to forget that once you are connected to the
world, the world is also connected to you. The Internet brings with it
huge advantages in terms of communications; but at the same time it also brings
very significant risks in terms of data security.
As each economy
around the globe seeks to secure it's gateways to the Internet, many of them
are showing a strong preference to do so using locally developed information
technology. Locally developed information technology is usually best
adapted to local requirements, allows for rapid customization utilizing
research and development teams which are on-hand at all times, and offers the
very best support possible, for the simple reason that the developers are by
definition always on-the-ground and working in the local time
It is a good time
to remind everyone that Hong Kong is already at the forefront of computer
security today, with companies such as Network Box, which is headquartered in
Hong Kong, having won more than 70 national, international, and media awards
for cyber security to date. Indeed, Network Box has even won three Gold
Awards for cyber security, published out of Silicon Valley itself, and won the
coveted HK ICT Award of the Year 2013, for its Anti-Distributed Denial of
Service Web Application Firewall Plus system, which was presented to Michael
Gazeley, Managing Director, Network Box, by the Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung
Chun-ying earlier this year. Network Box is also triple ISO 9001 / ISO
20000 / ISO 27001 certified, has achieved a perfect triple 100% Tolly Group
effectiveness rating against its Extended WildList Malware database, and is
also IPv6 Ready Core Phase-2 certified as well.
It is also a great
time to remind everyone that recently Forbes, one of the world's most highly
respected business publications, listed Hong Kong as the number one Tech
Capital to watch, after Silicon Valley and New York. Hong Kong's IT
Developers are not short of imagination or ability; what's needed is an
improved local marketplace, lead by the Hong Kong Government itself. The
world famous technology companies which have grown out of the USA, Japan, and
Korea, all did so with very strong government backing and support.
Companies from these countries now lead the world in many areas of
technological development. Hong Kong is very well placed to do the same.
