Presentation: Fear the (DDoS) botnet

  • DDoS has entered a new era: less spoofed traffic, and much more botnet driven. 
  • The DDoS problem is also no longer something just at the peering edge: bots are present within almost every network, from homes (IoT) to datacentres. 
  • This new generation of attacks require a new approach to effectively mitigate at scale.

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.
