IT Governance publishes new content on cyber security legislation spanning the Asia-Pacific region

New information has been released by IT Governance on cyber security regulations applicable for the Asia-Pacific region.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, August 26, 2014 / -- New information has been released by IT Governance, the global leaders in information security, risk management and compliance, on cyber security regulations applicable for the Asia-Pacific region.

The new content spans Australian, Hong Kong, Singapore and Philippine cyber security legislation, aiming to help local businesses abide by local laws. The new content from IT Governance offers a unique aggregation of information, including details of the acts, key requirements, penalties and advice on compliance.

Founder and Executive Chairman of IT Governance, Alan Calder, comments on the new content: “Data protection and cyber security legislation varies greatly throughout the Asia-Pacific region and can be quite confusing for small and medium businesses looking to comply. This fresh content hopes to break down legislation specific to each country and provide straight-forward guidance on compliance”.

For organisations in the Asia-Pacific region looking to achieve an effective cyber security posture, it must be realised that hardware and software solutions alone are not enough to protect them from cyber threats and that a broader information security approach is needed.

IT Governance has a strong track record in helping organisations from around the world strengthen their information security management systems (ISMS), while aligning them to government or contractual requirements. In fact, Calder and his colleague Steve Watkins, director of training and consultancy at IT Governance, were the first in the world to implement an ISMS in line with the international information security standard, ISO27001 (then BS7799).
