On the 22nd of December 2019, the Macau Cybersecurity Law ("MCSL") came into force. This new cybersecurity law requires public and private critical infrastructure operators in different industries to meet obligations that aim to protect the information networks and systems for critical infrastructure. "Critical infrastructure" in addition to utilities and other public service operations includes casinos which are a major contributor to the Macau economy.
DDE Technology is working with companies in many countries that operate critical infastructure and is proud to be helping companies in Macau to become compliant with this new cybersecurity law. DDE specialises in the control and engineering systems that underpin the operations and assets of companies including BMS, HVAC, Chiller, HMI, PLC, SCADA etc. These systems are found in casino building management systems, electricity generation and transmission, water supply and treatment and a host of other sectors. While they are critical to ensuring safe and reliable operational outcomes, these systems are at higher risk of cyberattack and compromise than IT systems and similarly, the impact to the reputation and revenue of the operator is greater.
