      A Data Breach Prevention, Detection & Response Strategy to Combat Todays Threats Nick Frost, Principal Consultant, ISF LTD Recorded: Sep 18 2018 12:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • With the ever-increasing frequency and sophistication of security threats to organisations, business leaders need to have a comprehensive data security strategy to protect themselves. Information security practitioners have to think and plan beyond existing protection capabilities that are aimed at preventing threats only. Today's cyber security strategies need to protect an organisations mission critical assets in a way that is:

      ‒ balanced, providing a mixture of informative, preventative and detective security controls that complement each other
      ‒ comprehensive, providing protection before, during and after threat events materialise into security incidents
      ‒ end-to-end, covering the complete information life cycle.

      This will enable organisations to match the protection provided with the sophistication of threats to such mission critical information assets. This webinar will look at past and present models and share ideas on how organisations can ‘future proof’ their strategies to combat next generation threats.

      In particular in this webinar, Nick Frost, Principal Consultant at the ISF will discuss what actions can be taken to identify your most critical information assets, and how a modern day cyber security model needs to focus on prevention and detection of a data breach, and how to respond to a breach in order to reduce damage to brand and reputation.
