According to Kaspersky Lab South East Asia, Channel Sales Director Mr Jimmy Fong the brand is sponsoring the technology fair as a means of educating consumers directly by showcasing the many different threat scenarios for laptops, desktops, mobile devices and even on social networking sites.
“For end-users and businesses education and awareness on malware are an on-going process because the types of threats keep evolving. Many consumers and corporates alike still think that malware is a harmless prank virus that results in some downtime and inconvenience only. That was long ago. Now malware is all about economic gain with the theft of information, identity, credit card, bank account and mobile phone numbers for the cyber criminals benefit, and for your loss,” Mr Fong explained.
“We’re going for a fun approach to educating on a serious topic with lots of goodies and packing the event with games and activities with a Lunar New Year theme to get everyone into the festive spirit,” he said.
Look out for loads of fun activities including easy-to-win contests, lucky spin, limited edition Jackie Chan ang pow packets and Chinese Zodiac bookmark giveaway, a photography contest with big prizes and feng shui tips ahead of the Lunar Year of the Rabbit from a renowned feng shui master.
