Cyber security conference focussing on cyber crime and data security


A cyber security breach can have devastating implications on your brand.

Damage to your reputation and brand value as a result of a cyber security breach can have devastating implications in how your organisation is perceived. In addition, the trust dynamic that exists between suppliers, customers and partners can suffer long term damage.

Can you identify the most likely source of risk, from an ex-employee to a compromised supplier?

How confident are you of your IT security infrastructure and ability to detect and counter these risks?


A guide to being better prepared to respond to attacks on reputation.

With the speed and complexity of the threat landscape changing on a daily basis, all too often we’re seeing businesses being left behind, sometimes in the wake of reputational and financial damage.

If and when a cyber security breach occurs, it’s important to limit its impact, including its impact on the organisation’s reputation. Businesses today need to ensure they are fully prepared to deal with these ever-emerging challenges by equipping their organisations better to deal with reputational attacks.

This may seem obvious, but the faster you can respond to attacks on reputation, the better your outcomes will be.


Strict new EU data protection rules will oblige companies in breach to pay 4% of their global turnover in fines!

Strict new rules forcing companies to pay four percent of their global turnover in fines if they breach the EU’s Data Protection Regulation have been formally agreed.

What does this really mean for Irish organisations and what steps should you be taking to prepare.


Fight back with the right mix of technologies processes, and people skills in place.

Rather than let attackers win, boardrooms and business leaders need to fight back. There is no one-size-fits-all model for effective cyber security but it needs to start with getting the right mix of technologies, processes, and people skills in place.

Throughout the day leading industry experts focussed on cyber security issues such as:

Don’t wait for demand to spike, or the next disaster to strike, before taking action to reduce your supply chain risks.

How complex is your supply chain?

Is every link in the supply chain afforded the same level of security?
