09.25-10.10 KEYNOTE: The Art of Cyber Crisis Management
There are three things that everyone should accept. One – You will get hacked. Two – you are probably not ready. Three – Being ready makes a huge difference. Over the years, companies have become great in “Prevention”, and great in “Detection”. Yet, as many famous incidents have shown - organizations are far from being ready with their “Response” controls. It sometimes seems like even leading multinational enterprises make every possible mistake in the crisis management process. Times and again we see that a proper management of a crisis can significantly reduce the damage experienced by a company. The challenge is that building an effective cyber crisis management is a multidisciplinary challenge that combines activities in many domains (Security, Business, Legal, PR, Insurance, and others). In this talk we’ll learn from others’ mistakes and dive into the art of cyber crisis management.
