Intellectual Property & Technology Partner Wun Rizwi & Senior Associate Jack Ow quoted in Bloomberg Business article titled “A Veil of Secrecy Aids Surge in Cyber-Attacks in Asia”

RHTLaw Taylor Wessing Partner Wun Rizwi and Senior Associate Jack Ow were quoted in a Bloomberg Business article titled “A Veil of Secrecy Aids Surge in Cyber-Attacks in Asia”.

The article reveals the astonishing reality that when security breaches occur in Asia, most companies don’t have the legal obligation to disclose when hackers steal personal information. This equates to about 42% of the world’s Internet users (or about 1.4 billion people), remaining in the dark about how much of their personal and sensitive data has been stolen. 

An article that Rizwi and Jack had written was used to emphasise a point about regulators in Asia.
