Developing Meaningful Relationships to Successfully Manage the Message, the Moment and the Marathon to Recovery

Event: Annual Conference - DRI2020

Author: Michelle Schaap

We have fire drills in school and in the work place to prepare: we know who the class monitor is, we know the “safe” place we are supposed to go, and we know with whom we have to check in with … Given that a fire is very disruptive to business operations, businesses prepare. So, why aren’t businesses doing the same BEFORE a cyber incident – or worse yet – breach? Even if you put numbers on paper for your local FBI office, your insurance agent and your cyber attorney, have you sat down with them and ran drills to prepare for the “when” or are you waiting for when your business is already in turmoil? Having established lines of communication before, during and after any crisis is critical for a business to weather the storm and to successfully emerge from the settling dust. Hear from legal experts, law enforcement officials and business executives on how to establish these relationships and how to manage your response and your messaging internally and externally to ensure ongoing operations despite threat actors’ best efforts.

Cybersecurity and Business Continuity - Two Trains on the Same Risk Management Track

Event: Annual Conference - DRI2020

Author: Michele L. Turner

Imagine a railroad track, a solid structure used to guide trains to their destination safely and securely. This track incorporates switches, to move trains from one track to another, controlling the flow of traffic, and mitigating risk. Now apply this same analogy with cybersecurity and business continuity. Two trains carrying precious cargo of tools and techniques which can fortify and build resiliency within the organization. Whether the dinner car has a cybersecurity menu of identify, protect, detect, respond and recover, or a BC menu of prepare, assess, remediate or sustain, the end result is a great meal. How then, can we utilize the structure, cargo and menus from both, to create a superliner or Eurostar type of train that will get us to safety in style! During this session, we will take a look at the framework and methodology for both cybersecurity and business continuity, the challenges requiring a “flip of the switch,” and how these two trains, not colliding, but merging, can create a ride like no other.

Cyber-resilience: A Day in the Life of a CISO

Event: Annual Conference - DRI2019

Author: Wade Richmond

Cyber-resilience can be thought of as the ability of an enterprise to anticipate, withstand, recover from and evolve to improve capabilities it needs to function brought about as the result of cyber threats and/or attacks. This enhances both the cybersecurity function and the BCM function (e.g. the whole is greater than the sum of its parts). To be resilient, a holistic approach to understand and prioritize entity risk, and implement risk management activities needs to be integrated into day-to-day operations (across all entity functions). But what does all this mean to the CISO? Attend this session to find out as you take a look at t day in the life of a CISO from a cyber-resilience perspective.

Achieving Cyber Resilience: A Formula for Success

Event: DRI White Paper/Survey

Author: Wade Richmond

Organizations today are confronted by a wide range of cyberattacks, so it comes as no surprise that cyberattacks and data breaches have consistently ranked high on the list of key issues identified for the resilience community according to the DRI International Global Risk and Resilience Trends Reports, issued annually by DRI’s Future Vision Committee. This year’s report revealed that although the top issues remain the same, there appears to be an even greater focus on technological risk. Given the development of technologies and the growth of business data, this is likely to remain the case moving forward … which may provide new opportunities for hackers to cause such massive disruptions.
