Heart Health Quiz For World Heart Day From Philips

Sunday, September 29th, 2019

It’s World Heart Day today, and Philips is highlighting the importance of early detection of heart disease with its heart health quiz to increase individual awareness of risk factors and early symptoms to encourage early detection and preventive care.

I like how the quiz provided immediate tips based on each of the 14 questions, based on its relevance to heart health. At the end of the quiz, you get an overall assessment of the state of your heart health.

Chevron Singapore, which operates the retail brand Caltex, has introduced Singapore’s first fuel payment app.

“As part of its new digital transformation, Chevron has opted for an agile approach to its first mobile payment solution, listening closely to user feedback and learning from industry best practices towards developing a minimum viable product for fuel payment,” said Chevron’s General Manager of Products for Singapore, Shahid Ahmed, when I chatted with him during the app’s launch.

Norton Enlists Actor Edmund Chen to Raise Cyber Crime Awareness

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

2017 Norton Cyber Security Insights Report reveals one in two Singaporeans identified as victims of cyber crime. Edmund shares his personal experience with cyber crime.

“My daughter was cyberbullied by some close friends in secondary school. As a parent, I was saddened and shocked that this had occurred. During that period, my daughter refused to go to school and even became skeptical of relationships,” said actor Edmund Chen.

“My daughter was cyberbullied by some close friends in secondary school. As a parent, I was saddened and shocked that this had occurred. During that period, my daughter refused to go to school and even became skeptical of relationships,” said actor Edmund Chen.

Even though consumers feel confident they are safe online, hackers have proven otherwise, stealing US$172 billion from 978 million consumers in 20 countries in the past year.

This is according to the Norton by Symantec 2017 Norton Cyber Security Insights Report (NCSIR) released today.

“Consumers’ online behavior reveal a dangerous disconnect. Despite a steady stream of cyber crime sprees reported by media, too many people appear to feel invincible and skip taking even basic precautions to protect themselves. This disconnect highlights the need for consumer digital safety and the urgency for consumers to get back to basics when it comes to doing their part to prevent cyber crime,” said Gavin Lowth, Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan, Norton by Symantec.

The effects of cyber crime can extend beyond pure monetary impact as actor Edmund Chen can attest.
