London, UK, 20 September 2016Cyber: Security Breach Planning seminar
Cyber-attack is now a fact of business life – at some stage most businesses will have to deal with being attacked. Sarah Hewitt, a Director in the Major Risks Practice hosted a successful event as part of London Technology Week - a breakfast seminar exploring ‘Security Breach Response Planning’, in partnership with Chubb Insurance.
The UK Government 2015 IS Breach Survey found that 90% of large and 74% of small businesses had a security breach in 2015. Of paramount importance to a business is how quickly and effectively they can react. The aim of a breach response plan is to mitigate response times and control/reduce the impact of a breach.
The speed of response and effectiveness of actions taken following a breach are a window to a business and will dramatically affect how they are perceived in the aftermath.
Breach Response Planning is now a mission critical activity which will help you to comply with the legislative implications of the inevitable breach, protect your reputation and ensure business continuity to protect revenues.
