Synopsis and overview of the session

It has become clear that those businesses that can best cope with traditional commercial, economic, operational and political shocks are also the most cyber resilient. To build resilience, businesses need to assume attacks will happen and develop techniques and tools to defer, detect, protect and recover critical applications and data.

A resilience strategy will help organisations navigate the ever-evolving threat landscape, better protect their data and systems, and respond to and recover from cyberattacks.

Focus Network in partnership with Dell Technologies would like to invite you to an intimate roundtable lunch discussion, where we will cover some of the challenges Executive teams are experiencing in responding to major cyber-attacks, the need to mitigate damage while protecting critical data and enable recovery with assured data integrity to restore business continuity.

There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions to help you fortify your cybersecurity programs and become a cyber resilient organisation.

3 key takeaways attendees will learn from attending this upcoming lunch include:

  • The 5 key principles of cyber governance.
  • How to decipher cyber resilience for your Board so your message lands.
  • Resilience means more than prevention – Management and Boards need to be response ready.
