Cyber risk management and risk managing in the digital age

6th September 2017 10:00 – 13:00

Willis Towers Watson offices

Workshop overview:

This interactive workshop will look to define and categorise those cyber threats facing your organisation within your respective industry areas. With discussion based around the operational, financial and reputational impacts of a cyber-breach upon your business, it will consider:

  • Threat actors - who is targeting your organisation?
  • Threat motivations - why are they targeting you, what are the motivational factors driving those actors?
  • Threat techniques - how will they target you, what are your vulnerabilities and what are a threat actors capabilities?

Observing a number of recent high-profile cyber-attacks as well as simulated cyber threat scenarios, this workshop will also look at how the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affects your business.

Expected outcomes of this workshop include:

  • An understanding of the current and emerging cyber threat landscape
  • Ability to identify and categorize cyber risks affecting their organisations
  • Select appropriate controls, strategies and insurance in order to mitigate against and respond to a breach

Who should attend?

  • You will be interested in this workshop if you are a risk or insurance manager with some experience of cyber risk but wish to enhance and develop your understanding on this topic
  • You will be interested in this workshop if you are relatively new to risk and insurance management (with less than 10 years' experience) and wish to improve your understanding of this topic

Learning outcomes:

  • Attendees will gain an understanding of current and emerging threat landscape.
  • Attendees will learn how identify and categorise common cyber-attacks.
  • Attendees will be able to identify areas within their business that are most susceptible to cyber-attack.
  • Attendees will learn how to perform simple mitigation techniques in order avoid possible cyber-attack

Attendees should be prepared to talk about:

  • Their (personal and/or business) experiences of any cyber security incidents. How did it happen and what were the outcomes?
  • Their understanding of the current cyber threat landscape.
  • Areas of their own cyber defences that they feel could be improved or are perceived to be vulnerable.
