It is not surprising to learn Breach Preparedness is on the agenda of businesses across the globe. There are two main ways to test your company’s resilience, one is to have an incident and the other is to prepare. To be prepared, you need to answer the following questions:

  • How could my organisation become the victim of extortion from a data breach or ransomware attack?
  • How would we respond?
  • Who would respond?
  • How would we recover?

Bringing groups of stakeholders together before an incident occurs is extremely beneficial and effective in identifying gaps and issues prior to a ‘real’ event. Coming in May, is an intimate C Level Discussion sponsored by Seccom Global and lead by Cyber Security Leaders, where we will explore:

  • preparedness exercises and how to equip your business to respond to a cyber breach.
  • addressing the key cultural and technical elements holding back Australian Businesses from enhancing their cyber breach posture.
  • a look at the role of breach simulation and its impact on stakeholder management and business engagement.
  • an overview of a breach simulation: preparing for it like it has already happened.
