A cyberattack is a malicious and deliberate attempt by an individual or organization to breach the information system of another individual or organization. Usually, the attacker seeks some type of benefit from disrupting the victim’s network.
Cyber attacks hit businesses every day. Former Cisco CEO John Chambers once said, “There are two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those who don’t yet know they have been hacked.” According to the Cisco Annual Cybersecurity Report, the total volume of events has increased almost fourfold between January 2016 and October 2017.
Cybercrime has increased every year as people try to benefit from vulnerable business systems. Often, attackers are looking for ransom: 53 percent of cyber attacks resulted in damages of $500,000 or more.
Cyberthreats can also be launched with ulterior motives. Some attackers look to obliterate systems and data as a form of “hacktivism.”
This session is geared primarily for C-level Staff. We will introduce the common types of Cyber Attacks that affects businesses across the globe:
- Business Email Compromise
- Man-in-the-middle attack
- Denial of Service
- SQL Injection
- Brute-Force Attack
- Zero-day exploit
We will walk-through a Case Study of an actual incident that our Investigators would have responded to that affected a large distribution company. We will discuss the business impact in terms of:
- Cost of downtime
- Cost of Recovery
- Reputational Considerations
- Customer Loyalty
Information Security is not an IT function. The Head of an organisation is ultimately responsible for protecting the assets of the company and sets the tone for how everyone else should treat corporate information. We will discuss the things every CEO should ask to determine whether their assets are secure and if they are leading a security conscious workforce.
