Download the Report

Hong Kong businesses reported experiencing the lowest number of cyber incidents in APAC, with 43% of organizations having been affected, compared to the average of 59%.

The Cyber Threat Landscape in Hong Kong

Organizations are most concerned about data loss (68%), which is well-founded, with 40% of the most recent cyberattacks reportedly causing data loss. Organizations were also concerned about business interruption (54%) and reputational damage (57%). It’s also important to note that while 28% of organizations were concerned with regulatory fines or sanctions, zero respondents reported having suffered regulatory fines following a cyber incident. This is likely to change as Hong Kong’s Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) steps up their enforcement of data protection laws.

Hong Kong measures implemented to address cyber security threats

More than half of the organizations surveyed in Hong Kong have implemented various measures to address cyber security threats. Similar to Australia, buying hardware and software security tools (74%), training (70%) and monitoring (70%) are the top three choices for Hong Kong.
