FAR Webinar: Executive Leadership During a Cyber Attack:  The Most Important 24 Hours of Your Career

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 | 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EDT | Zoom

Presenter: Jonathan Roy, Director of Security and Compliance, DesignData & Derek Symer, Not-for-Profit Practice Director, AHT Insurance

Description: When it comes to Cybersecurity and risk mitigation, there is a lot of talk about preventing and detecting attacks, but very little discussion on how to respond to a live attack as it is happening. 

Once you become aware of an attack, the actions your leadership team takes in the first 24 hours, the first 60 minutes, and even the first 10 minutes can drastically affect your organization’s future as you work to minimize your financial loss, the damage to your reputation, and your legal and regulatory liability.  This educational session for business leaders tackles the important components of Cybersecurity incident response that happen outside of the server room:  The key communications, delegations, insurance notifications, and business decisions you need to make quickly and correctly to weather the storm of an active cyber attack.

Learning Objectives:

    • Learn why and how to develop and use an Incident Response Plan to navigate an active cyber event
    • Recognize when to open a Cybersecurity Insurance Claim (and when not to!) and how to navigate the claim process to ensure the best outcome for your organization
    • Take part in a War Room Exercise for a real cyber attack scenario, give time-sensitive direction to important players like the IT department and media relations team, and recognize the key capabilities needed in Incident Response that you can start developing in your organization today
