Cyber Resilience, Risk Remediation and Cyber Insurance Seminar - Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce

Chamber Member, IT Works are hosting an event on Cyber Resilience, Risk Remediation and Cyber Insurance.

Protecting your business from cyber attacks is more than having cybersecurity tools or an IT team. A successful cyber attack could cost you operational downtime, loss of data, reputational damage, and lost revenue.

Being cyber resilient is much more than being cyber secure. Being cyber resilient means knowing what needs to be protected, what risks you face, and having plans for threat detection, response, and most importantly, knowing how to recover as rapidly as possible from cyber incidents.

This event is in partnership with Intelligensia and Crombie Lockwood and our keynote speaker will be the founder of Intelligensia, Jan Thornborough.

Jan is the former head of the Cyber Resilience Unit at the National Cyber Security Centre, which is part of the Government Communications Security Bureau.  She has a comprehensive insight into the scale and threat of cybercrime facing everyday New Zealand businesses.  Jan saw that cyber-resilient businesses were more likely to survive a cyber-attack and recover faster than those who weren’t.

During her time with the GCSB Jan represented New Zealand at the first public Five-Eyes Cyber Security Panel at Cyber UK alongside the heads of agencies for the National Security Agency (NSA), Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), Canadian Security Establishment (CSE) and the National Cyber Security Centre UK.

After leaving the GCSB, she founded Intelligensia to help businesses of all sizes to become cyber resilient, withstand cyber attacks, and thrive in the digital economy.  Intelligensia addresses a gap in the market for cost-effective and accessible cybersecurity advice and support for small-medium businesses and For Purpose organisations.

Myles Noble, Head of Insurer Relationships and Broker Claims with Crombie Lockwood will talk about some real-world instances of cyber attacks within New Zealand, the cost on the organisations impacted by these events, not only financially but reputationally and the importance of having sufficient insurance cover to protect you and return to business as usual as quickly as possible.

There will be a panel Q&A session after the presentation where representatives from IT Works, Intelligensia and Crombie Lockwood will be available to answer any questions you may have about being cyber resilient, how to secure your environment to ensure you have the greatest protection, how to keep your staff educated and aware of risk, and how to ensure you have adequate coverage in the event of a cyber breach.
