What can you expect?

This virtual event looks to educate by talking you through a real-world Ransomware attack from a CISO’s perspective. It will also focus on an engineer’s experience of how Cyber Criminals typically get a foothold and how they capitalise on the initial access to maximise the impact of the breach.

It will challenge you to think how you would fair if you experience a similar attack. Do you have the right people, processes and technology in place so mount a credible defence?

After gaining valuable insight from both our speakers it’s time for some fun. The Virtual Casino night is the evening’s entertainment, an opportunity to compete against others for fun. No gambling knowledge needed as the more traditional games are explained and remember lady luck can fall on anyone.
