How cyber-resilient is your organisation?

The proliferation of technology and digitalisation has resulted in cyber security becoming central to business resilience and continuity plans.

But if there is one golden rule about cyber security, it is that it is never a certainty that you are fully protected. Where is the potential for problems and what impact will they have?

Recent months have seen several attacks both in Australia and globally, with governments, critical infrastructure networks (like power, water supply and telecommunications), universities and think tanks; and medical and food supply chains and facilities targeted.

As the Australian Government responds to the growing range of threats and attacks, the Security Legislation (Critical Infrastructure) Amendment Bill 2020 has expanded the number of sectors that will be considered critical infrastructure. Cyber security - strategy, accountabilities and disclosure - will be a lynchpin in this revised national security structure.

In this webinar, a panel of experts look at the need for cyber resilience to be a key part of the business continuity and resilience plan. The panel will examine the different threats, actors, risks, and possible disruptions and consider the strategies for business continuity, mitigation and recovery.

What is in it for you?

The webinar will cover:

  • How to map the potential threats and risks and weak links in your system
  • Business resilience following a cyber-attack
  • What are the cyber security measures that can contain and minimise the impact of attacks?
  • How to integrate a cyber resilience strategy within your business continuity plan
  • What factors should guide your response when faced with a ransomware attack?
  • What impact will the upcoming Security Legislation Amendment (Critical Infrastructure) Bill 2020 have?
  • Cyber security accountabilities and obligations – clarifying capability, skilling, responsibilities and roles.
