An Exclusive Lunch Roundtable:
Lifting the Veil on Today’s Cyber Threat Landscape
“The asymmetry present today in cyber space is causing companies playing defense to be sucker punched by those playing offense.” – Kevin Mandia [Paraphrased] (Fortune, 2017)
Digital disruption and cyber-defence today are top-of-mind concerns for boards and CEOs around the world.
As companies transform and embrace greater connectivity, leveraging disruptive cloud technologies, it is inevitable that their network and data today is now many times more vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
Bloomberg reports that discovered data breeches in 2016 alone had risen 40% since the previous year, and worldwide spending on security-related hardware, software and services rose to $73.7 billion in the same year.
While it is impossible for companies to remain in a cocoon, disconnected from the digital world, how could business leaders then embrace this wave of transformation, whilst keeping their data safe and services secure?
This exclusive lunch roundtable discussion gathers board members, CEOs and CIOs to hear from Kevin Mandia, CEO of FireEye, as he addresses current challenges in cyber-defence and shares valuable lessons from his experiences working with the most sensitive organisations around the world and recovering from severe data breaches in the last decade.
