10:10 Panel Discussion – Dealing with the aftermath of a cyber attack: the good, the bad and the ugly
With the majority of UK businesses targeted by cyber-attacks, an organisation’s response is just as important as its preparation. Talking to customers, dealing with uncertainty and handling legal responsibilities can make or break a company. This panel will explore what ‘good’ looks like following a breach. This session will cover:

How to communicate effectively with customers and the public
Emerging tips on how to work with regulator
Learning from others’ mistakes: what shouldn’t you do?

11:30 Breakout sessions

Breakout 1: Driving resilience through digital skills and behaviour change (Resilia)
Cyber resilience is a team sport where everyone has their role to play. With attackers innovating rapidly, our digital skills in both our personal and working lives are a vital part of our ability to grow and protect our organisations. From the boardroom to the frontline, we all need the right behaviours and motivation to make informed cyber security decisions. This panel discussion will cover the following areas:

Why we don’t always do the right thing?
Making good security behaviours habitual
How can we most effectively influence and drive behaviour change?
Talking about business risk in the boardroom
Lessons learnt and guidance for change

Breakout 2: Preparing for the “perfect storm” – how ready is your business for a cyber attack? (NatWest)
Using real scenarios, this session will bring to life how technology can be abused to deliver the wrong outcomes for your business. It will prompt debate and discussion to understand the actions you can take now to prepare for the near inevitability of cyber attack.

Assessing preparedness – do you and your people know where your vulnerabilities lie and how they can be used against you?
Acting now – what can you do now to prepare?
Constant vigilance – is it possible to ‘future-proof’ against threats we don’t even know about?

12:30 Lunch and networking

13:30 Breakout Session

Breakout 3: Hyperconnectivity and the Hacker Economy (SCC)
We live in a world of accelerated virtual human connectivity and IoT hyperconnectivity; a world where a million new devices connect with each other every hour of every day.

This presents opportunities for companies that acquire, analyse and monetise data. Likewise, hyperconnectivity is a colossal challenge for organisations, creating a huge attack surface for cyber criminals. This session will cover:

The implication of 5G, WiFi 6 and IoT in the changing cyber security landscape
Mitigating risks while taking advantage of the commercial benefits of hyperconnectivity
Planning your security and compliance best practice framework
Ensuring you’re one step ahead in the hacker economy.

14:30 Afternoon refreshment break and networking

15:00 Panel discussion: Making the most of your investment in cyber security
Most businesses are investing in cyber security – but with so many solutions out there, it can be hard to know where to begin. What internal buy in do you need? What skills will be most useful? How can individual solutions be integrated into a coherent strategy? This panel will explore what works when it comes to adopting cyber technologies, so you can be sure you’re getting the most out of your cyber security investment.
