Overview (Program Summary)

When a cyber-attack or data breach hits your organisation, the pressure to react immediately is acute and there will be limited time to think or plan.  A comprehensive, approved plan and regular cyber drills involving your board and key personnel are critical to your organisation’s effective response. 

LK Principal, Brooke Hall-Carney, will lead an interactive cyber drill focused on core legal considerations to test your readiness to respond in the event of a cyber incident.  Brooke will discuss some of the critical issues that your organisation and its board will need to address, including insurance, payment of ransom, communication, notification, damage to brand, director’s duties and what happens after the event.  

With legislative reform increasing the personal risk of executives and Boards, our cyber drill will allow you to assess your organisation’s ability to respond and recover.
