Achieving Resilience

Thursday 22 February 2018, ILEC
SC Congress 2018 puts the focus on what we can do to survive in this age of constant cyber-attacks by sophisticated adversaries with ever-evolving threats. We won’t win every battle, but surviving is winning the war, making it more difficult and expensive for our adversaries to breach our defences, then minimising the impact even if – or when – they do.
In addition to a multitude of networking opportunities, our 2018 Congress includes two Masterclasses and three Keynotes which will deliver a range of expert advice, best practice, tips and approaches to improve your security posture, from ransomware response and breach recovery plans to defending a company against a regulator bent on imposing a maximum breach fine. Interactivity will ensure delegates are able to get their issues addressed.

In addition we’ll have CISOs to regulators and law enforcement on our four panel sessions – covering multi-jurisdiction Regulation (including GDPR); Crime, and spotting what’s suspicious; Critical infrastructure under attack; and diversifying the workforce to close the skills gap.

We’ll also have nine industry-speaker sessions, sharing their expertise in three simultaneous strands so that you can choose the issues that are most relevant to your organisation.

Attendance is complimentary to qualifying delegates who must register in advance to be given free entry on the day.
