In today’s complex and ever-changing security landscape, every C-Suite and Board knows of cyber risk, but what does it really mean to be prepared to respond to a data breach incident? Top executives do not have to become cyber security experts, but they must make sure their organization’s breach response plans and strategies are defined and set. While they will not directly lead technical, legal and notification efforts to address data breaches, they do need to act as internal champions of proper planning and prevention.
Identifying and closing security gaps, directing communication channels, and developing and regularly testing incident response plans are as important now as managing any other business risk or concern. Therefore, company leadership must take charge and direct their organizations to conduct extensive preparation efforts to mitigate those risks and make certain everyone stands ready to execute against the established procedures and policies when a breach occurs.
In this webinar, you will hear from experts who have been on the inside and outside of data breach response efforts. You will learn:
•Why the C-Suite and Board need to champion planning and prevention efforts.
•How to get Executive buy-in.
•Ways to build stronger response structures from the top.
•How to construct response architectures. Who needs to be responsible for what?
•Cyber Risk – What are the latest threats and what does the C-Suite and Board need to understand?
•Developing and directing an Incident Response Plan: Where do the C-Suite and Board fit in?
•Examples our experts have seen – the good and the bad

India remains an attractive destination for foreign investors as its economic fundamentals and optimism about its prospects remain strong. From a macroeconomic perspective, India is one of the fastest growing major emerging markets, with recent projections from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) pointing to a fiscal growth of 7.4% versus a 6.6% expansion in China for 2016. Politically, it is more stable than in previous cycles, with the BJP led government initiating a number of reforms and regulatory measures that are instilling economic confidence and raising India’s attractiveness as a destination for FDI. The country’s demographics are equally promising: India is home to 18% of the world’s working-age population (ages 15-64), a growing middle class with increasing purchasing power and a corporate sector that is flexing its muscle domestically and globally.

Vietnam continues to be a major foreign direct investment destination in Asia Pacific. The country has positive macro-economic factors demonstrated by its solid and continued GDP growth, a number of free trade agreements, improving infrastructure and a young demographic and low labor costs which has encouraged businesses to relocate there. However, there remain a number of potential uncertainties and risks for inbound investors given the new government administration following the Communist Party of Vietnam’s 12th National Congress in January. The geo-political situation around the South China Sea is also an issue for those operating in Vietnam, and limitations in obtaining information and disclosures can present challenges to parties executing transactions.

How to defend against digital hijack of your business data, and what to do if you get hit
Cyber criminals have discovered the perfect tool to force modern business owners into the vice of extortion – drop malware onto an unsuspecting network to encrypt all the data and demand payment to provide the key to unlock the data. The attacked business has two choices; either lose access to years of data or pay a ransom to get the data back. The cyber criminals bank on the fact that businesses will pay to rescue their hijacked data.
Such attacks or ransomware are on the rise, fuelled by successful extortion payments. The types of businesses being targeted are expanding, and the delivery methods used to infect systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated. There are also many different types of malware now available; Crypto Wall also known as Crowti, Crypto Locker, FakeBSOD and The FBI scam.
Preparation is essential to surviving such attacks and monitoring of systems is needed to prevent them.
Identifying social compliance issues, particularly forced labor and human trafficking in supply chains, continues to be a significant problem for business, particularly when sourcing from opaque and non-transparent emerging markets. Civil society is playing a large part in increasing awareness and pressuring politicians to introduce and enforce legislation, and is gradually highlighting the issue as a problem which needs to be addressed both by governments and the business community.
Kroll has been researching and working on this issue for a number of years and believes that businesses should be taking the issue as seriously as other forms of compliance.
Will Myanmar’s historic elections outcome bring durable change to the country? Who are the forces at play, and what is at stake in the negotiations around the transition to NLD rule?

In this webinar, you’ll hear from cyber security expert Jonathan Fairtlough. He’ll discuss how recent data breaches are showing just how unprepared organizations are in understanding where their data is held, and how to respond when your clients...and sometimes their families, are put at risk.
Jonathan and Kroll have experience with complex cyber investigations, including computer intrusions, insider attacks, ransomware and malware outbreaks, Internet fraud and theft of trade secrets. He has worked with clients on a wide range of cyber concerns, including security policy and implementation, incident investigation and detection, forensic analysis, malware analysis, and breach threat reduction.
Too often cyber security is viewed as an issue relevant only for businesses holding customer data. The reality is quite different. Hackers regularly target all electronic information and systems in a company, and even attack executives and their relationships. Those targeted attacks can put executives at risk of being extorted or manipulated.
More specifically, cyber criminals can wreak havoc by leveraging an executive’s family and community connections, social media, and publicly available digital information. Cyber criminals can even impersonate the executive and compromise highly valued investor or board member relationships.
Learn best practices from experts on how to defend against cyber theft across all spheres, respond to and investigate theft-related breaches or seek legal remedy to recover losses.

Join Kroll experts for a webinar about Human Rights and Ethical Issues in Asia, the potential impact they have on your global supply chain, and how legislation, such as the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act, is affecting companies with vendors in Asia.
Recent US and international legislation has led to greater scrutiny of global supply chains, requiring companies to disclose their efforts in combating human rights risks within their direct supply chain. While the boundaries for accountability within supply chains remain unclear, consumer and stakeholder expectations are pushing companies to prioritize and address issues such as human trafficking, conflict materials, poor working conditions, and land rights issues. This webinar will discuss how legislation is affecting companies with vendors in Asia and cross-sector solutions to meet the challenges of supply chain, particularly in the ASEAN context.
