The evolving digital landscape brings the virtue of increased connectivity and efficiency, but also new challenges. A digital real-time world also means real-time fraud. As technology evolves, so do methods of fraud and companies now need to act proactively instead of reactively - particularly against internally-originated fraud.

Organisations of all sizes and in all industries are targets of ransomware attacks—and the number is skyrocketing. Ransomware attacks can not only cause significant direct and indirect costs to the organisation, they degrade productivity and can cause irreparable reputational damage. By implementing proactive controls, organizations can minimize the chance of falling victim to a ransomware attack. 

This session will explore leading cybersecurity practices, with critical steps to take and tips to incorporate into your approach.

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Understand the risks and opportunities created by the current hard cyber insurance market
  • Identify the key controls for preventing ransomware attacks, why these controls are important to the business and cyber underwriters, and the critical questions to ask of the business in respect of these controls
  • Consider the key points to be included in an incident response plan
  • Understand how to deal with a ransomware attack should one occur
