    • Measuring Your Plan with a Tabletop Exercise Measuring Your Plan with a Tabletop Exercise Tony Kirtley, Senior Incident Response Consultant at Dell SecureWorks Recorded: Feb 16 2016 7:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    • Ensuring your CIRP is a plan for disaster – not a disaster waiting to happen.

      Most organizations establish Cybersecurity Incident Response Plans (CIRP) with great intentions of leveraging them during security breaches. The reality is, many times once a CIRP is established it gets filed away to collect dust on a shelf until a breach occurs, leaving it out of date and out of mind. If a breach occurred tomorrow, would your organization know the proper steps and procedures to eradicate the threat... who the key stake holders are and the communications flow... when and how to reach out to a third-party for support?

      All of these are included as a part of your CIRP, but using a dusty CIRP as a guide for the first time during a breach is not a plan – it’s a disaster waiting to happen. Testing your plan prior to an incident is the key to minimize the duration, impact and cost of a breach to your organization.

      During this interactive webinar, Tony Kirtley, Senior Incident Response Consultant at Dell SecureWorks, will share the importance of testing your CIRP plan through regular tabletop exercises to help identify your organization's strengths and weaknesses, and further the development of your proactive security capabilities.

      In addition you will learn:

      - What makes an effective tabletop exercise?
      - Real stories of how organizations benefited from tabletop exercises.
      - The benefit of bringing in an objective third party to facilitate your table top exercise.

      3). 90% of strategies fail due to poor execution
      4). And so 71% of employees are "disengaged"

    • Managing your pensions risks in the Pension Trust’s Growth Plan Managing your pensions risks in the Pension Trust’s Growth Plan Richard Soldan and Tim Sharples Recorded: Sep 26 2013 10:00 am UTC 44 mins
    • The risks to many employers in the Pension Trust’s Growth Plan will have come into sharper focus following the start of deficit contributions in April this year. This is likely to put additional financial pressure on charities at a time when the economic downturn is impacting on donations and grants.

      The recent news stories about charities closing because of pension debts will have caused concern in the sector. However, there are many positive steps charities and other employers that use the Growth Plan, such as independent schools, can take to manage and monitor their pension risks. LCP are working with many such employers to help find the right solutions for them.

      Steve Webb, the Pensions Minister, is also aware of the problems, and has stated that he will be exploring ways to help employers in multi-employer pension schemes such as the Growth Plan.

      This webinar will explain:
      - the Growth Plan’s current financial position and the key risks faced by employers;
      - what any reform of multi-employer pension schemes may look like in practice;
      - the range of options open to employers to manage risks from the Growth Plan; and
      - how the cost of exiting from the Growth Plan is currently being calculated and how to monitor that cost so that opportunities to exit at an affordable price are not missed.
