Part 1

Topic: Surviving and Thriving through and after a Cybersecurity Incident
Traditionally, organisations have focused their IT security efforts on protecting against and preventing attacks. But attackers have learned to modify their attack methods to make protection more difficult, taking advantage of weaknesses in processes and people as well as technologies. Organisations can improve security resilience by ensuring that their risk management processes include recovery planning, not just event response. Identifying and prioritising organisation resources helps to guide effective plans and realistic test scenarios. Advanced preparation enables businesses to rapidly recover from attacks and helps to minimise the impact on the organisation. Join us for this session as we review how new and changing technologies impact our readiness to deal with cybersecurity incidents. We will walk through some real world cybersecurity incident scenarios and apply what we have learned to prepare for the inevitable and stay in business.

Part 2

Topic: Man of Mode: Fashion, Hacking Tool Reuse and Copycat Crime in Cyberspace
Cybersecurity crime is now a criminal enterprise dominated by organised crime and other state tolerated actors. In this increasingly sophisticated criminal ecosystem there are now patterns of criminal behaviour. Similar types of cybersecurity crime will be experienced by many organisations in the same industrial sector in a recognisable period of time. For example a group of telecommunications providers in different countries will experience a similar incident. In this presentation we will explore the business reasons and the enabling technical factors behind these cybersecurity crime waves. We will also discuss how these can be employed for threat intelligence and early warning.
