Managing your reputation following a cyber-attack


Into the Breach - avoiding, managing and reacting to cyber threats

    • - GMT

Protecting against cyber threats and data loss can sometimes feel like a thankless task. If you succeed few will notice and it is almost impossible to avoid all risk. In this area though, failing to prepare really will mean you are preparing to fail. But where to begin? Even for large organisations the myriad of threats, changing every day can make the job feel daunting. So whether you have done nothing at all, or you are wondering if you have done enough, let us take you through the issues you need to consider to make sure that cyber threats don’t keep you awake at night.

In this five-part webinar series we are joined by special guests to look at cyber security and breach management issues from a variety of angles. Starting with what happens if you find yourself in the thick of a cyber incident. In the following weeks we will look at communicating and protecting reputation during and post crisis, managing employee risk, and data disputes, including group litigation. Finally we will circle back to take a look at what you can do in advance to reduce your organisation's exposure to data risks and how to mitigate the effects if the worst does happen.

The sessions will provide you with the opportunity to hear from our experts and to ask questions. If you are interested in joining any of the sessions please view the programme below.

Wednesday 17 November 9:00 GMT - The Mitigation Game: preparing for the worst 

Having heard about the many challenges that organisations face when responding to cyber incidents, you will (we hope) be ready to assess your own position and take steps to create, or improve, your organisation's cyber breach plan.

In our final session Jo Joyce and special guest Bruce Keeble from Booz Allen Hamilton will talk about the steps needed to prepare a breach preparedness plan and make sure that you are ready and able to put it into practice. Jo will look at the work that the Information Commissioner's Office (and other regulators) will expect to see and how you make sure you have evidence that will satisfy regulator queries. 

Since many organisations invest time and effort in preparing a plan but never test it, we will discuss approaches to stress testing your breach plan so you can rest easy knowing it will hold up in a crisis.
