Navigating Risks With Cyber Insurance (Sponsored by BitSight)

The significance of the cyber insurance industry is growing given the frequency and severity of breaches. Having an insurance policy that covers cyber-related incidents is critical for businesses, and no longer a 'nice to have' in the digital economy. But not all insurance policies provide comprehensive coverage, so just how much coverage do you need and what practical benefits can it offer to your security leaders?

Join this session to understand the full scope of what insurance policies do and don't cover, industry insights into new claim trends and regulatory priorities.

Creating a Cyber Security Culture (Sponsored by Wrangu)

Peter Drucker famously said "culture eats strategy for breakfast". Most organisations have a well-documented cyber security strategy - but do they have the culture to support it? Culture can be the elusive, unseen, and sometimes unmeasurable human link that can give organisations a better chance of defending themselves.

This session explores:
  • What cyber security culture is
  • How to implement culture programmes for your workforce, partners and suppliers
  • How to map, measure and benchmark culture
  • The relationship between culture, communications and security awareness
  • Strategies to fortify culture, from working with the board to champion security to creating a receptive environment
