Key issues to be covered

When it comes to cyber security, there are many different angles to be considered. Some organizations, like international schools, are particularly at risk when their cyber security is breached due to the nature of their membership or clientele, or simply the type of information that they store. With this in mind we will be tackling both general topics, as well as industry case studies that help provide examples of the unique cyber security concerns many high risk organizations face.

Key issues that will be covered include:

China cyber security law sharing – China has only recently released its new Cybersecurity Law, which has given the government unprecedented control over the country’s internet usage and associated data. This has raised concerns from foreign businesses and other entities that are wary of who might have access to their electronic information. This is a real concern, as the law now requires businesses to store certain types of data on servers inside of the country’s ‘Great Firewall’.

Implementing effective risk management – Having your data compromised is bad enough, but afterwards there can be fallout strong enough to bring any company to its knees. What are the real risks that could result from a breakdown of cyber security, and what steps should your organization be taking to properly insulate itself from them? Our panel will be on hand to delve into these topics and more related to cyber security risk management.

Cyber security of international schools – International schools have a special kind of risk attached to their data protection, as they are dealing with sensitive information of both children and their families. Using this sector as a case study, the people in these institutions that deal with cyber security every day will be on hand to discuss their unique challenges. This will help attendees to identify what their particular challenges may be, as well.

For those working at international schools, specifically, there will be discussion of recent cyber attacks, attempted extortions, and how these kinds of events can impact a school’s image.

Protecting online privacy of international schools with risk management tools – Find out the real world steps that international schools’ leadership have taken to address their cyber security concerns. There are a number of tools out there to bolster cyber security, and you should know what they are.


Pacific Prime China has assembled a panel of risk management experts to speak on the topic of cyber security at the seminar. These individuals come from diverse backgrounds, and have dealt with the issue of cyber security in different ways. Their collective knowledge should see attendees leaving the event with newfound and valuable knowledge of the topic that they can share with their own teams and employers.

Presenters and panelists include:

  • Jason Armer – Country Manager, Pacific Prime China
  • Gary Gu – Partner, Ernst & Young Advisory Services
  • Vincent Guo – Manager, Ernst & Young Advisory Services
  • Alan Preis – Director of Technology, Shanghai American School
