In a time of crisis, how will you respond?

Data breaches are becoming ever-greater lightning rods for conflict. Executives are losing their jobs. Major new breach notice rules are going into effect in the European Union. Business leaders and security professionals continue to make critical mistakes when responding to cyber incidents.

To effectively mitigate legal fallout, disruption to operations, broken customer trust, and loss of crucial data, an organization must take an all-hands-on-deck approach to breach response. At the two-day Data Breach Summit, you and your team will join security practitioners, incident responders, CISOs, risk managers, attorneys, and insurers to share experiences and debate flashpoints around data breach scenarios. Through a collection of in-depth presentations delivered by top experts and interactive table-top exercises, you’ll walk away with actionable strategies and concrete steps to implement before it’s too late.

The Summit will examine the following:

  • Lessons from real cyber crisis cases
  • The executive management decision-making process
  • Compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other laws around the world
  • Assessing and protecting the confidentiality of evidence from incidents and breaches
  • Managing a multi-national cyber crisis
  • Requirements for communicating to stakeholders
  • Implications and obligations of involving the FBI or other law enforcement agencies
  • Timely, critical analysis of a security incident
  • Effectively partnering with your cyber insurer
