How to Make Your Entire Organization ‘Cyber-Ready’
Scott Ferguson – Executive Editor, ISMG / Mike Vamvakaris – Regional Director – Crowstrike Services Canada
Organizations are facing an unprecedented challenge when it comes to cyber threats – from attackers on the outside trying to exploit vulnerabilities to gain a foothold, to employees on the inside either making honest mistakes or committing a nefarious, to a lack of resources hindering security teams from keeping up with these changes.
Threats both external and internal drive CISOs to ensure that their incident response plan is ready to go. This includes making sure the security team is well trained and ensuring processes and tools are resilient enough to handle the evolving threat landscape.
But is the rest of the organization “cyber-ready?”
Do the other members of the C-Suite understand the risks that come as the threat landscape changes? What are the challenges in reporting incidents to board members? What are some of the tips and tricks to ensure that executives secure the required funding to protect the organization? What are the emerging best practices for incident response readiness? Do employees understand their role in the cyber-attack cycle? What are the unknown costs of a breach to an organization?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how to ensure cyber readiness throughout the organization.
Discussion topics will include:
- What type of threats are Canadian organizations concerned about?
- What does it truly take for your entire organization to become “cyber ready”?
- What are some of the best practices for ensuring that executives and employees follow sound security practices?
- What is the “true” cost of a Canadian cybersecurity breach?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Mike Vamvakaris, Regional Director – CrowdStrike Services Canada – at CrowdStrike.
