Virtual Roundtable and Whisky Masterclass on Strategies to Boost your Cyber Security (AEDT)

Operating under the Chatham House Rule, we will start by each participant to nominate one question that they would like to have answered by the group. We will then work through the questions making sure that everyone gets an answer, which will be a shared process where you will benefit from the combined experience of the other attendees.

While the questions to be discussed will be determined by the group, good examples of the kind of questions, we might expect to answer include:

>  What policy frameworks should we adopt now that we have remote workers on the outside of our traditional security perimeter?
>  How can we run a security gap analysis to benchmark ourselves against companies with a similar threat profile?
>  What can we do in advance to nullify the impact of a ransomware attack, and how should we respond in the first instance?
>  Apart from Ransomware, what other attack vectors should be of most concern?
>  How do we manage the human factor, which may not be in the domain of IT, without being seen as alarmist or causing cyber fatigue?

As with all our roundtables, you will get the most value from the open discussion with your peers, other CIOs and Heads of IT who like you, are all facing a common problem. For this reason, there will be no PowerPoints or formal presentations.

The roundtable will be facilitated by Steve Orfanos of Kytec and Doug Brown of Cisco, who are both subject matter experts and well respected within the cyber community.

How to Register

If you would like to join the discussion, please note that if you do register, your company name will be shared with other delegates and potential delegates. This is to help us create the most useful discussion possible.

Virtual Whisky Tasting Masterclass

Following the discussion, please join us for a relaxed whisky tasting experience. We will send you a hand-picked selection of fine whisky in advance, so please register asap to ensure you receive your whisky delivery in plenty of time. This is particularly important now, given the delays at Australia Post.

If you don’t drink Whisky, then we have alternatives, such as Gin. If you don’t drink at all, then you can attend the roundtable and skip the drinks.

The event is finished.
