    • 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many times once a CIRP is established it gets filed away to collect dust on a shelf until a breach occurs, leaving it out of date and out of mind.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.

      How to translate your strategy into a meaningful action plan your team "gets." Ben Ridler, CEO RESULTS.com Recorded: Dec 9 2015 7:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • Besides not truly understanding what constitutes a company strategy, most strategies fail because employees don’t feel connected to the plan or get how their role contributes to its success. The stats are alarming:

      1). Only 5% of employees understand their company's strategy
      2). about half of middle managers can name even one of their company’s top five priorities
      3). 90% of strategies fail due to poor execution
      4). And so 71% of employees are "disengaged"

      Get ahead of 2016 and ensure your strategy is on track for success. Grab your team and join this learning session where we’ll provide you with best practice on how to:

      1). Define what a strategy is and is not
      2). Uncover the requirements for creating a successful strategy
      3). How to choose the key strategic projects that will drive your success in 2016
      4). How to align your team to the vision and drive the execution of your strategy

      Carry your cyber response plans in your pocket Darren Notley (Everbridge) Recorded: May 18 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • You’ve built your cyber response plan and are confident you can respond and recover from a cyber attack and have robust procedures in place. But once a business critical cyber attack has been identified, how quickly can you invoke those plans, get your team to start collaborating, communicating and coordinating the response?

      Moreover, cyber attacks don’t conveniently happen during office hours so you need to be able to mobilise your response teams across shift schedules, time zones, locations and communication devices.
      In this session we’ll look at how you can digitize your response plans, improve operational response, keep everyone informed through reliable crisis communications and simplify and standardise the organizational response.

    • Been hacked by cyber terrorists? What’s your Plan B?
      Been hacked by cyber terrorists? What’s your Plan B? Braam Pretorius (ContinuitySA) Recorded: May 18 2017 4:00 pm UTC 28 mins
    • In today’s global village everyone is connected. The internet has brought billions of people together, allowing sharing of data, communication and commerce at a scale never imagined before. The value of the internet is clear for everyone to see. Unfortunately, the same internet also allows for cyber hackers and attackers to fight a new war, Cyber terrorism, theft of data and extortion. The attackers hide in plain sight. Working from homes or offices. Sometimes alone, often in syndicates. Even state sponsored cyber terrorism is on the increase.

      Large cyber security companies such as firewall providers and anti-virus vendors are spending millions of US dollars in a constant battle to stay ahead of the cyber threat. Unfortunately, these measures are not always successful in preventing cyber-attacks from occurring as can be seen from recent attack against Primera Blue Cross.

      The company, a health insurer based in Washington State, said up to 11 million customers could have been affected by a cyber attack last year. Hackers gained access to its computers on 5 May 2016 and the breach was not discovered until 29 Jan 2017. The breach probably exposed members' names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, mailing and email addresses, phone numbers and bank account information. The company is currently working with the FBI and a cyber security firm to investigate.

      So, given that no matter what you do to protect yourself against the cyber threat, you will probably be attacked or have already been attacked. You therefore need a plan B to allow your business to continue with crucial day-to-day activities after the event.
