Technology Risks and Implications: Managing Against Cyber Attacks

Malicious attacks from the outside or inside, dependence on an outside services firms for core resources, lack of control over data and applications…all threats that could ruin a business.  None of these can be controlled from a purely technical standpoint.  Combine human elements, malicious software and a myriad of miniscule detectable and undetectable hardware devices and you have a recipe for a disastrous data breach.  Companies depend increasing on CFO as part of the security system.  The presentation will make sense of trends in cyber-attacks, dissect the anatomy of a cyber incident, and discuss best approaches to plan for and respond to a cyber incident.  Then, participants will work in teams to consider the CFO's role in real-life cases: what to do before, during and after an attack.
