The Economist Research: Cyber Attack Response – Are business leaders ready?

Presented by

James Chambers, Senior Editor, The Economist Intelligence Unit & Arabella Hallawell, VP Strategic Planning, Arbor Networks

About this talk

New research from The Economist Intelligence Unit shows how businesses are starting to view cyber-attacks as inevitable – and also as a potential opportunity. The report, sponsored by Arbor Networks, entitled “Cyber incident response: Are business leaders ready?” shows that despite 77 percent of companies suffering an incident in the past two years, over a third of firms (38 percent) still have no incident response plan in place. In fact, only 17 percent of businesses globally are fully prepared for an online security incident. Despite this, the majority (67%) of senior executives believe cyber incidents can be an opportunity to enhance their company’s reputation, provided the response is competently handled. Attend this webinar to learn: • Why the level of preparedness is being held back by lack of understanding about threats • How an emphasis on reputation is driving formalization of plans and processes • The reasons firms remain reticent about disclosing incidents and sharing intelligence about threats
