Cyber Crisis Seminar
CIPR Marketing Communications Group
Wednesday, September 28, 2016 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
We are living in a digital world, from the way we communicate with our customers, to the way we get our messages out to media, to the format we use to talk to our staff. But holding so much information in a digital domain brings risks – digital platforms are not restricted by borders, but can house personal, corporate and financial information of huge value.
As recent breaches have starkly highlighted, organisations whether they be retailers, telecom companies, banks, support services firms, healthcare firms or governmental bodies, are vulnerable to a potentially damaging attack. Having a plan to counteract such a threat is essential.
This event will look at how we as communicators can assess our digital risks, put together a communications plan for a cyber security breach, and ensure that our businesses, or our clients’ businesses, are prepared for a cyber crisis.
Ben Curson, Managing Director at strategic communications consultancy CNC will draw on his experience of working with clients on cyber breach planning to discuss best practice in putting together a cyber crisis comms plan; a top cyber risk lawyer will lay out the legal responsibilities for companies communicating details of a digital breach; and a representative of a private company who has recently weathered a cyber crisis, will speak from personal experience of how they handled communications, and what to do when it happens to you and your business.
Graeme MacGowan, from from the EU Cyber Security Cluster Advisory Board and VigiTrust will bring his long-standing, high level experience to the panel. Graeme provides specialist risk advisory services and proprietary converged cyber & physical security services to Public and Private sector organisations, providing a complete end-to-end solution, whether for risk-centric requirements or security-driven priorities.
Lawyer Helen Nuttal from DAC Beachcroft LLP will also be speaking. Helen has handed a number of breaches and is currently on a part-time secondment at Beazley, a specialist insurer dealing with cyber-crime. She has spoken on data breach and data protection law at various events.
Join us from 6:00pm for drinks and networking, before our speakers present at 6:30pm. The event will be an open discussion and you will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Drinks and canapés will be served after the event.
