Cyber Defence Briefing

Thursday, December 10, 2015 4 years ago 12:30 - 17:00

An afternoon of presentations from our team of leading consultants on MWR's latest research and thinking on how to defend your organisation against both current and future cyber-attacks.

This MWR Briefing has passed, but you can sign up to be notified of future events, or register for another of our upcoming events by visiting our MWR Briefings page.

Both the hype and real-world impact of “APT” continues but what does this really mean for you and your business? Having spent years providing solutions to this problem for our clients, MWR will share our perspective on the subject and how you should deal with this threat.

It is fair to say that the term “APT” has had a springboard effect and has started to move thinking in the right direction – organizations are beginning to understand the nature and scale of the threat, getting board buy-in to do something about “cyber” – but they are not always addressing the challenges posed appropriately.

During this Briefing we will demystify “APT” and what the solutions to managing it should include; challenge thinking and propose what we believe to be the “right way” of building an effective cyber defence programme.

Presentations will include:

Cyberspace Threat Landscape
What’s happening and how are the risks evolving? An overview of changes in criminal and Nation State attack drivers and methodologies
