EVENT: Decoding the Cybersecurity Landscape, 21 Aug 2018

Cybersecurity has become a major concern for ASIS logo
C-level executives and boards due to the increase in cyber incidents, privacy concerns, regulation, and heightened focus on cyber by audit & compliance functions. From a defensive standpoint, the latest threats that organisations have to deal with are constantly evolving.

But how real are they and what impact do they have on organisations? What makes cybercriminals tick? What tactics do they use and how do they conduct their attacks? What do they usually go after? This session will outline the state of play in today’s cybersecurity landscape, focus on the reality, uncover how the most cyber resilient organisations address their risks and concerns, and take a look at the challenges in front of us.
