Synopsis and overview of the session

Cyber crises serve as stark reminders to take preventative measures and avoid complacency with cyber security.

A ‘good’ cyber crisis also provides a unique opportunity for CISOs and the security teams to dissect post –mortem the key lessons learnt and, draw valuable insights to effectively securing the organisation’s people, processes and technology in a cyber crisis.

Exploring the 5 W’s – ‘Who’, ‘What’, ‘Where’, ‘When’ and ‘Why’ – of a cyber breach allows CISOs and the security team to explore key internal cyber vulnerabilities that can range from visibility and complexity issues to dark corners, human error, response time and cybersecurity skills.

Focus Network, in partnership with Fortinet, will bring leading IT Security executives for an interactive and confidential peer-to-peer discussion. We will uncover how to develop and implement the key pillars of a robust readiness and mitigation plan to protect people, processes and technology with a mesh approach.
