Cyber security, Data and Information Governance have all become mainstream topics in Australian businesses, often due to the wrong reason with breaches making news headlines.

Changes are occurring in the regulatory landscape, in particular with the introduction of the Mandatory data breach notification laws commencing on the 22 February 2018.

Boards and Executive teams now accept that they need a plan, a budget and a team to effectively implement and monitor cyber security, data and information governance.

The session will cover:

  • An update on the mandatory data breach notification laws
  • A case study from Commonwealth Bank examining how they are responding to data breach laws and cyber security issues more broadly - including their threat landscape, staff training including cyber-attack scenarios and the procedures and processes they have in place to govern cyber security issues (policy frameworks and compliance checks)
  • Top five cyber resilience initiatives and the practical steps you can take to quickly turn intent and a plan into action
  • Tips and advice on dealing with privacy and cyber security
  • Measuring and reporting on success

Join us for a special breakfast briefing where you will hear from our speaker and network with your peers.
