Managing Cyber Security in a Multi-Vendor Environment

It was just a few years ago that the standard saying related to the world of Cyber Security was, “…it’s not a matter of if you or the enterprises you interface with will get hacked, it’s a matter of when…”.
Today the saying is “…you have already been hacked…and you don’t even know it…”. The Ponemon Institute (Institute research center dedicated to privacy, data protection, and info security policy) has stated that 50% of all customers have reported at least one (1) cyber-attack in the past year. The average total organizational cost of a data breach is $2.4 million with the cost to larger enterprises reaching $10M+. The average number of days to identify that a hack has occurred in 150 days. The average number of days to resolve the hack is 50. These attacks are not going to go away as Hacking is now a very lucrative global industry taking on the look and feel of the legitimate business. We are ALL vulnerable, but what are the guiding principles for defense against cyber-attacks?
Allan & Shaun will walk you through some of the current global trends in Cyber Security and share a real-life example of what a cyber-attack did to a large, local Island organization.
