Topic: True Cyber Emergency Stories and Leadership Action Plans
Abstract: Cyberthreat incidents are a concern as they impact business continuity, necessitating the need for more emphasis on cybersecurity. Over the past few years, there has been a dramatic increase in major cybersecurity incidents affecting large, medium, and small organizations in the public and private sectors. The Colonial pipeline incident was a prime and the most impactful example of how incidents in the digital world can disrupt day-to-day activities, public order, and probably even a nation’s economy. In comparison, cyber emergencies in business organizations may not seem to have a tremendous impact but have higher occurrence frequencies and will result in a monetary loss of the business. These disruptive incidents, from ransomware to data breaches, have raised the stakes for technology and security leaders. The current webinar aims to shed light on the growth of cyberattacks and how organizations can prepare for incidents with a response and business continuity plans.
- What is the reason behind the alarming rise in cyber emergencies?
- What action steps can government leaders take to prepare for cyber emergencies before, during, and after they happen?
- Why do businesses need an incident response and business continuity plan in addition to existing security detection and prevention systems?
- Important emergency drills, simulations, and tabletop exercises to train and determine the response-ready state of your organization and staff
