On Thursday 3 August 2017, we hosted a free Cyber Crisis Simulation breakfast at the University of Greenwich, to prepare SME’s for the day their business is breached so that they can act accordingly to mitigate disaster, and to ensure they are better prepared for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018.
Reputations are ruined when businesses are unprepared for the consequences of a cyber breach and this event will have helped those 66 businesses who attended prepare for that day.
The simulation was based on learnings from over 100 major data breaches and covered the following topics:
- why shock and ambiguity are common responses in the Boardroom.
- where command and control systems are stressed after a major breach.
- who expects what, among regulators, customers, partners and police.
- how the exponential growth in cyber-attacks puts your job on the line.
- what to do today, to protect yourself from cyber-attacks of tomorrow.
The event is part of a series organised by the London Digital Security Centre to help protect businesses, primarily micro to medium sized businesses, to operate in a secure digital environment.
The event was sponsored by Identifi Global.
