Cybersecurity threats are one of the biggest risks to an organization with little to no margin for weaknesses.  We discuss the types of cybersecurity threats, response preparation and the strategic use of lessons learned.  In this 2-part series, we’ll discuss:

  • The types of information being sought after
  • Who the bad actors are - State-sponsored organizations, organized crime, and others
  • Risk models
  • The types of breaches, including phishing and access to networks and systems
  • Responses when you do have a breach. Incident response systems, including planning, executing, learning, and implementing improvements
  • Information accumulated in an effective investigation
