Principal Security Lead
Information Security Forum
12:35PM - Day 2
Presentation: Cyber Simulation: Maximising Incident Response Success for a Riskier World
Of all the functions of the chief security officer, incident response is the most visible and perhaps the most career-limiting. An organisation’s incident plan not only demonstrates its preparedness and readiness to address a major incident but also says a lot about its culture. And while the average cost of a data breach has increased year on year, there are now more reasons an organisation can be denied cyber insurance if its preparedness is deemed to be less than adequate.
In this session Bharat Thakrar will help you understand how to map your response to a simulated threat scenario and highlight the value of assimilating ‘war games’ to test and refine your incident response management stance. In the interactive workshop you will be guided through simulated threats and encouraged to discuss and debate challenges and opportunities that will support you to develop and lead best practice response to cyber incidents.
