Information Security Summit 2017, organised during this year’s Cloud Expo Asia, took place on 24 May at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai. The half-day event was organised by Closerstill Media, with Smart City Consortium (SCC) as one of the strategic partners. The summit attracted information and communication technology (ICT) professionals from different public and private sector organisations – the participants exchange views and ideas, and interacted with thought leaders from across the ICT industry.
