The increased threat and business impact of cyber attacks is well known. But are organisations really prepared for the risk? Are they able to successfully respond to that inevitable attack? It is not "if" but "when" and at times the importance of the business and security teams, physical and cyber, coming together can be undervalued.
This session will use real experiences to explore and demonstrate how security professionals can help to build awareness, develop combined organisational resilience strategies, and assist in mitigating the risks to your reputation, competitive advantage and operational stability from a cyber breach.
We will demonstrate that it is not about turf wars about which team should take the lead. The truth is, we all have a role to play whether you sit on the board, work in the physical or IT security space or work in any other part of the business. What does matter is visible leadership from the top down and everyone knowing the role he or she needs to play.
Become commercially aware for the attack you cannot avoid.
Learn the importance of building in-depth organisational resilience when attackers break through.
Develop a strategic and operational approach to ensure you are ready for the consequences of an attack.
Focus on the importance of working and winning together, how traditional security and IT teams play a crucial part in organisations response to the growing cyber risks.
