Workshop: Interactive Business Interruption Scenario

This 90 minute interactive workshop revolves around a simulated ransomware attack. As the situation unfolds, the company’s incident response team—and, by extension, the participants—will ask questions and make decisions regarding system restoration, negotiation, payment, legal ramifications, notification, public relations, and more. Each time new information is revealed, there will be a break in the action for live table discussions. Following the discussions, participants will help guide the company’s next actions by making selections on their mobile phones.

This event is SOLD OUT!

Let us have a VERY frank conversation…

Information Security is at a painful point in its development. It has failed to deliver on a many of its promises. It has held itself up as the savior to businesses and has spectacularly failed to deliver. The industry is rife with misinformation, marketing hype and false promises. How DO we navigate through this? How do we see the woods for the trees? AND how (as an industry) do we regain trust from those charges we have so far failed to protect?
