1. Human Firewall
Strengthening the weakest link in your security
chain – Creating the Human Firewall
The latest security countermeasures, technology and
experts are no match for the people and employees this
technology is meant to protect. A simple mouse click,
post-it note or thumb drive left on the bus can be the start
of a critical, embarrassing and costly breach. It’s no
wonder why cyber criminals use employees or people as their primary target in well over 90% of successful
attacks. This session will review the importance of
continual security awareness programs and the
consideration of technology geared towards protecting the user
from doing harm to themselves and their organization.
2. Supporting Business Resilience
through Incident Readiness
Organizations are no longer measured on whether they
fall victim to an attack, rather they will be measured on
how they respond to these unfortunate attacks.
Organizations must prepare properly in order to perform
adequately in the face of the stress and pressure of
dealing with a major incident in the heat of the moment.
