No matter the industry, ransomware threats only continue to gain sophistication, breadth of impact and cost.  So without question, preparing for the inevitable breach is worth the priority, time, effort, and expense, given the potential for abruptness of system lock-outs, data loss, litigation, damage to brand and reputation.

Delivered by Lloyd's market professionals and leading security experts, this fast paced, informative 75-minute event will get your wheels turning about what the latest ransomware tripwires look like and what new preventative steps you can take to protect your market business (irrespective of size) from this fast evolving cyberthreat landscape.

This event is a ‘must attend’ for senior business, IT and security professionals; senior technology architects and developers; finance officers; risk and compliance executives; plus underwriters and brokers who work in the Lloyd's and London insurance market.  If relevant to colleagues please forward details of this forum.
