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. The dilemma is how do you maintain peace of mind that your business is secure by design?

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.

'Threat Actors Know the Value of Your Business Reputation - Are You Safeguarding Your Sensitive Data?'

In the shift from pure network disruption, to pure data extortion tactics, organisations must start looking at improving their data management. Dark web marketplaces are trading large amounts of data and selling them at a profit, however, most businesses remain ignorant of the sensitivity of their data. And as nation-state cyber capabilities are currently focussing on the disruption of critical infrastructure, post-conflict, we are likely to see those capabilities reflected in attacks against organisations industry-wide.

Neil Hare-Brown has worked for over 30 years in the field of Information Security and formed the first digital forensics company in the UK in 1996, with the former head of the first Computer Crime Unit, Met. Police. Neil wrote ‘Information Security Incident Management: A Methodology’ in 2007, defining the best practices for cyber incident management.

After providing Digital Forensics to the Met Police and other constabularies for many years, Neil went on to form STORM Guidance in 2014. Pioneering in the field of digital investigations and cyber risk management, STORM’s services can be accessed across the UK, U.S., and Africa, helping customers better manage cyber risk and respond effectively to cyber incidents.
