Cybersecurity – Preventing and Managing Attacks

Cybersecurity – Preventing and Managing Attacks

Session Outline

Cyberattacks, malware and phishing attacks remain an ever present risk to both private and public sector organisations.  Data loss or data breach incidents may lead to considerable fines under for example the GDPR and this besides the reputational damage that such risks present. In view of this backdrop, as organisations strive to enhance their information security infrastructure to prevent such incidents and prevent the loss of personal data as well as confidential business data, the focus on cybersecurity has never been sharper.

Digital transformation has ensured that cybersecurity is one of the biggest issues currently facing organisations. In the near future, cybersecurity will continue being more of a priority as the business world becomes increasingly digital and cyber threats grow in number and sophistication. To succeed in such a scenario, organisations must prepare themselves for emerging threats and issues by having a proactive people-centred strategy in place.  Handled successfully, cybersecurity can give organisations the chance to raise awareness at the C-suite level, thereby helping to strengthen information security.

During this session we will be addressing what measures should be taken by organisations to prevent and minimise the impact of incidents affecting network and information system on the core services they provide and thus ensure the continuity of the services underpinned by those networks and information systems.
