Stand Your Ground: A Framework for Hacking Back

April 11, 2018, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Location: Sands 307 Level 1

When cyber attacks (such as data breaches and hacks) occur, they can result in devastating damage, such as business disruptions, revenue loss, legal fees, forensic analysis costs, and customer or employee notifications. To ensure a strong defense, consider the hardening of not only the network, but all the devices attached to it. Is your network as secure as it can be?

Cyber Education, Cyber liability insurance and Cyber Hardening have become an essential component to any risk management program. What is your Cyber Risk Score? In this interactive session, both audience and panelists will complete a score card together, leveraging both smartphone-based polling and Q&A. Does your organization store sensitive digital personal identifiable information (PII) accessible by more than 30 perent of your ecosystem? Are the systems protecting this PII deployed using hardening guides provided by solutions providers? These are samples of the questions allowing a “revelation of cyber risk” to be unmasked as “Escalated,” “High,” “Persistent,” “Moderate” or “Low.” Learning Objectives:

  • Grade their own cyber risk readiness
  • Identify areas that will fail first and what recovery should be employed when PII is unmasked
  • Learn how to deploy and even improve a corporate-wide hardening guide Also, learn how to legally employ active defense / hack back when persistently attacked, as well as a sample plan and process
