Breakfast Meeting - 08:00am to 10:30am

Understand where to start: how to identify and prioritise cyber risks

All organisations, large and small, are constantly under the threat of suffering a cyber breach. There are significant threats, and not so important threats, but the threat landscape changes every day.

And all organisations have a myriad of vulnerabilities - your organisation is probably no exception. Some vulnerabilities are trivial. Others could cause severe damage to your organisation, or even cause it to fail.

So much data. Data on emerging threats. Data on breaches that are happening. Data on the weaknesses in your defences. At this breakfast we will examine how to use information to prioritise the most significant risks and build the most effective defences.

You can’t defend against everything – even if security is getting sufficient attention in your organisation. Playing “Whack-a-mole” with threats in response to unfiltered scan findings is stressful and ultimately ineffective.

And you can’t fix all the weaknesses. There may be thousands of them. And unless you can quantify their impact and the risk that they pose to your overall security, you may find yourself focussing on the easy fixes that don’t represent the biggest danger.

With the increase in complexity - migration to the cloud and managing operational technology networks - these challenges will only increase over time.

So what can you do? You don’t want to waste money. But if you don’t act, your organisation could find itself seriously compromised. Where on earth can you start?

At this breakfast we will look at the problems caused by an overload of information. We will examine the many different types and sources of data around threats and breaches, and identify how this information can best be filtered and used.

And once you have the right information (accurate, up to date, comprehensive, and relevant) to hand you need to know how to use it. We will discuss how you can use information to prioritise the cyber security weaknesses in your organisation as well as how you can identify and prioritise the different threats.

The questions we will explore

During the meeting we will focus on strategic questions such as:

  • How can CISO’s responsible for cyber security pinpoint where to focus limited resources to ensure they are focussed on the most critical vulnerabilities?
  • Where can the most reliable, up-to-date and comprehensive data about threats be found?
  • What are the best tools and techniques to manage information security risk and how should they be used?

Who is invited?

This breakfast meeting is designed for senior security and risk decision makers in large organisations. These include top management (C Suite) and senior managers (reporting to C Suite) with responsibility for information security and risk (CISO, CIO, CRO, Heads of IT, Heads of Information security).

Delegates will work at large, international (1000 plus employees or $500 million revenue globally) organisations in the following industry sectors: financial services and insurance; retail; utilities, energy and telecommunications; manufacturing; central government (but not local government or NHS).

Be one of 12 senior business professionals around the table at The Goring Hotel in central London who will all bring their expertise to bear to analyse the present – and the future.

This breakfast briefing is brought to you by Business Reporter, in association with Verizon and Skybox, and is only for senior executives as mentioned above. Registrations of junior professionals, consultants, solution providers or other sellers to this market won’t be accepted.
