The Malta Chamber, in collaboration with BMIT (Bronze Sponsors of The Malta Chamber) organised an event titled ‘Data Protection and Cyber Resilience: A Powerful Combination’. The event, which featured Malta’s Data Protection Commissioner, aimed at raising awareness about the latest developments in data protection and cyber resilience.
In his opening speech, President Chris Vassallo Cesareo noted that The Malta Chamber believes that there is lack of awareness and knowledge when it comes to cybersecurity, hence, more education and awareness is required. “More digital-centric schemes are required for businesses to shift, upgrade, and improve their digital infrastructure, systems, and solutions. Government and business should join forces to develop and implement digitalisation, innovation and technology-driven transformation pathways tailored to different sectors,” he said.
During a panel discussion, The Malta Chamber CEO Dr Marthese Portelli highlighted the top 3 essential steps that businesses of any size should prioritize in terms of cyber resilience and to ensure that their business data is protected. She said, “It is important to know what data you have, where it is and who has it. It is important to know its value and relay it to employees. It is important to plan well your cyber resilience and to include the necessary resources for it in your annual budget.”
