Awareness, Behaviour, Legal and Regulatory Requirements


  • Training / Practice for helping to not only reduce the likelihood of cyber attacks, but also how to address a problem when something goes wrong (which it inevitably will at some point)
  • The law is increasingly saying that companies must implement some form of education and awareness training, and when a breach does happen, companies must have their arguments ready pre-breach so they can respond effectively to a breach and be able to defend their efforts to stave off the attack
  • Those who have managed breaches most effectively are those who have run simulations and had a plan in place
  • Stakeholder management
  • The role Education and Awareness plays in terms of how a regulator might look at a breach
  • How to spot training programs that will pass regulations vs those that won’t
  • The disparity between the cost of high-quality training vs the cost of handling a breach or facing fines for non-compliance
