Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Is Phishing and Ransomware a Critical Issue for you yet?

Ransomware and Phishing attacks have become a significant issue in organisations both large and small. The possibility of major business disruption arising from falling victim to Phishing or Ransomware is quite high, given that roughly 156 million phishing emails are sent globally every day.

The FBI reports that ransomware attacks have cost $209 Million in just the first three months of 2016, which is more than eight times the total for 2015. At this rate, ransomware is expected to yield close to $1 Billion by the end of the year unless individuals and organisations improve both their defences and security awareness.

Organisations must determine methods of improving their employees’ ability to withstand these threats, or at least, counter the most obvious ones. Cyber Security Awareness continues to become a major issue for management attempting to steer a safe course in order to carry out their “business as usual”.

Some of the key topics that will be discussed are:

•How has phishing and ransomware become so widespread?

•What are the best methods for countering the threat of phishing and ransomware?

•How can we improve the resistance of our user population to this threat?

  • Policies: Cornerstone of Privacy, Compliance and Information Security Management Oct 24 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Michael Rasmussen
    Policies are critical to organizations to reliably achieve objectives while addressing risk and uncertainty and act with integrity. Policies set the boundaries and expectations for behavior of individuals, processes, transactions, and relationships of the organization. High performing organization rely on policies to provide consistent behavior and outcomes. This is particularly true in privacy, compliance, and information security management. However, policies fail if they are poorly written, not understood, or are just paper documents that are not followed in the organization. This webinar delivers guidance and best practice in engaging users on policies to ensure they are clearly understood and followed.

    Key takeaways from this webinar are to learn how:

    User engagement is a critical part of a successful policy management system
    Consistency is critical to define clear rules of approach to Policy creation
    Policy awareness enable a dialogue on important issues that can typically be forgotten in a day to day running of the business
    Policy management has become a critical part of organisational oversight
