EVENT OVERVIEW

RANSOMWARE ATTACKS AND INCIDENT RESPONSE

Even the most well-regarded and robust security systems sometimes have a threat slip through the cracks and make a big impact. This can often happen at a weak point that was considered non-critical or in an area that was simply overlooked. Companies need to be prepared if their employees click on the wrong link and download some malware where they can face a ransomware situation.

DATA PRIVACY AND RANSOMWARE - WHAT'S THE CONNECTION

Over the last few years, the press has reported multiple instances of ransomware attacks on companies, it's often documented how much this costs an organisation in terms of lost business and the payment of any ransom, however, the impact on Data Privacy is not often discussed. In this brief presentation the DPO of VFS Global will look at some of the ways in which ransomware can impact a individual's privacy rights, and as such, how a ransomware attack could expose an organisation to an administrative fine from a data protection agency.

The presentation will briefly examine the concepts of data privacy and how a data protection framework forms part of the strategy of safeguarding that personal data and from there we will be able to understand how a ransomware attack can impact an individual’s rights and an organisation’s data protection framework.

Learning Outcomes:

  • How to identify the primary risk management needs within your organization
  • Strategies to manage the impact posed by the risk of security breaches
  • How to establish internal controls over system and network access to manage the risk of internal threats

Speaker:

  • Barry Cook, Global Data Privacy Officer at VFS Global
14:30 - 14:45 - Session 2 - Partner Presentation

RANSOMWARE ATTACKS AND INCIDENT RESPONSES

The variety of security tools analysts use is partly responsible for hindering the incident response process. New tools require employees to learn how to use them and integrate with tools that the company already uses. These processes take up a lot of time and resources and increase the complexity of understanding and responding to security incidents.

When the ability to protect yourself in seconds makes a difference this session examined how we can switch to a proactive security strategy to fill the gap to conclude between detection and response.

Speaker:

  • Frank Kölmel, VP Central Europe at Cybereason
