We had a stimulating morning at KPMG’s Ignition Centre learning about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance as well as the cybersecurity challenges facing REITs. The topic drew a good turnout from our REIT members who asked engaging questions at the Q&A sessions.
Many thanks to KPMG’s domain experts Eddie Toh, Felix Lum, Wendy Lim, Alban Perrin, Chua Zong Fu and Terence Wee for sharing your expertise with us!
