Organised by the Hong Kong Police, the forum will last until October 25.


It is being attended by law-enforcement officers from the Mainland, Macau and 17 overseas countries as well as cyber security experts and industry leaders from around the world.


The event provides a platform for participants to share their latest knowledge on cyber security and the best practices on critical infrastructures protection and incident response.


In his welcoming remarks, Acting Commissioner of Police Lau Yip-shing said collaboration, strategy, and continuous training and research are crucial in the face of increasing cyber security threats.


He added that he hopes participants could gain up-to-date knowledge on cyber security, and strengthen collaboration to cope with the cyber security challenges ahead through the sharing at the consortium.


Under Secretary for Innovation & Technology David Chung said new cyber security threats and technology crimes have emerged quickly with the rapid development of technology.


“It is therefore important for all of us to take a holistic and proactive approach to protect our digital economy and assets while maintaining an innovative culture and a vibrant society," he added.


He noted the Government has been strengthening collaboration with stakeholders to improve the cyber resilience of Hong Kong.


A number of guest speakers will share their insights on various cyber security topics such as next-generation technology, cyber revolution and cloud security.
