Experience a Cyber-Security Attack
Do you use free wifi at hotels and airports when travelling? See how easy it is to hack into your mobile phone as we witness a live demonstration.
Businesses and governments are transforming to better serve an increasingly digital world. With greater connection comes increased cybersecurity risk. Today’s reality is that there is no “perfect” security, and even the most diligent organizations may be compromised. Yet, citizens and customers want assurance that their data is secure.
From infrastructure and networks, to mobile applications, to employee education and business continuity, how do you assess and analyse potential cyber risks, continuously monitor for threats in real-time, put in place the necessary defences and ensure continuity of operations, even during a cyber incident?
Watch how easy it is to hack into your systems as we experience a cyber attack. Learn about the latest threats and techniques to protect yourself and your company.Compliance Presentation

Compliance with anti-bribery laws has quickly become a key responsibility of company managers, who in many countries are now threatened with criminal charges in addition to the fines imposed by a growing number of national enforcement agencies. While the United States has been the main driver of anti-bribery enforcement globally, in 2014 enforcement actions concerning bribery of foreign officials by countries other than the US outnumbered those by US authorities for the first time. That same year, SBM Offshore agreed to pay $240 million to settle their conviction for bribery of foreign officials by the Dutch Prosecutor (OM) whose investigation in to alleged corruption of Uzbek officials by VimpelCom is ongoing. VimpelCom announced late last year that it has set aside a provision of $900 million for its eventual settlement. The Netherlands has joined Germany, Switzerland, the UK and other OECD governments in allocating more resources to pursue domestic corporations for international bribery, and international cooperation in this area has increased significantly. This presentation will explain the key elements of principal anti-bribery laws, the enforcement trends, and the best practices for compliance programs that TRACE is committed to developing and promoting.
