The Savoy Grill, London

Every week, another breach. In the case of one of the big 4 accountant firms, this is an organisation that advises major institutions on IT security best practice, and yet we hear that critical systems were protected with a single password. If personal data on something as simple as an iPhone can be protected with multi-factor authentication, how can it be that businesses responsible for the protection of sensitive corporate information fail to implement it?

This is just one example of the fact that basic security hygiene simply does not protect businesses, or consumers, from today’s sophisticated cybercriminals. And if one of the big 4 accountant firms and Equifax are under-investing, that suggests that many – perhaps, most – organisations are not in a position to protect your personal data, and mine, from a cyber-attack.

GDPR, of course, is throwing this into focus. But will this regulation solve the problem and bring our corporations kicking and screaming into the 21st century, fit and agile enough to keep pace with the hackers who seek to destabilise them? At the Balabit Breakfast Briefing we’ll be discussing what CISOs can do to get ahead of the game and start detecting and preventing breaches before they can cause damage, instead of investing in post-incident damage limitation.
