Data Breach - Lessons Learned

Cyber-attack, data breach and inadvertent information leaks can all create a climate of financial chaos. Corporate revenue is directly impacted, growth is stymied and innovation is inhibited.

Cybersecurity is a growing problem for all types of companies and at all levels of government. Retail giant Home Depot, insurance behemoth Anthem and the major entertainment corporation Sony have all felt the impact of effective cyber-attacks.

Join us as we outline the lessons these cyber-attacks can teach us and how your organization can use ISO/IEC 27001 to help strengthen your operation's information infrastructure and effectively understand the risks to your organization that would help guard against cyber-attacks.

Participants will develop an understanding of:

  • Recent data breaches and how ISO/IEC 27001 controls could have assisted with mitigating risk
  • Benefits of ISO/IEC 27001 in all types of organizations
  • Specific controls in ISO/IEC 27001 that address cyber weaknesses
