Staying calm in a cyber crisis

Don't wait until a crisis occurs before thinking of crisis management. It is like waiting until you are drowning before thinking of learning to swim.”

It takes a lifetime to build a reputation and only seconds to destroy one.”

"Without the senior management getting involved with cyber attack training, it is like rehearsing for a show on Broadway with only the understudies: on the first night the lead actors will not be ready

In the current environment of daily data breaches and cyber attacks, The TrustBridge has joined forces with international law firm, Squire Patton Boogs, to offer live, interactive sessions.

Attendees will hear real life examples of what can go wrong, what has worked well, what remains uncertain when dealing with the inevitable data breach or security incident, and steps to take to mitigate risk.

During these events, a panel of industry leaders, cyber experts and legal professionals will step through a cyber incident response scenario and give real-time perspectives from the viewpoint of forensic investigation and mitigation, legal, cyber insurance, and law enforcement considerations.

These workshops, aimed at senior executives, will help prepare them to understand the risks, so if the worse happens, they can learn what decisions will need to be made whilst under pressure, their consequences, how to determine priorities, how to recover and, perhaps more importantly, what not to do.

But above all, how to mitigate risk and what to do to protect your organization against such attacks.

No organization is immune: according to recent statistics 66% of organizations say they had been affected by a cyberattack within the past year.

The data held by all business to consumer and business to business, membership organizations, conference centres and hotels, sales companies and retail is all valuable to someone; not least the organization that “owns” it. It is often personal information of individuals - so it should be protected at all cost.

If you have been following the recent high profile case in the USA in which the Chief Security Officer for Solar Winds has been personally charged by the regulator (SEC), for mishandling the company’s security and the data breach they suffered, you will be aware that all Board Directors are personally responsible for ensuring that data protection and Cyber security protocols are in place. This applies in the UK as well.

The TTB / SPB workshops are designed for industry leaders and will highlight key areas to review and action to take.
