Congratulations! The winner of the Forum iPad Mini goes to Richard Palmer, Alwen Hough Johnson Limited for best suggestion for a future ‘Security Matters’ Forum Title/Theme:

“Do firms need to appoint a Chief Cyber Officer?” (a discussion around whether the roles of the Head of IT and Head of Risk can be extended to cover the gap or whether we need to create a new specialist role?)  

iPad Winner of Cyber Security Governance: Latest Trends, Threats and Risks


While rapid technological developments have provided vast areas of new opportunity and efficiencies, these new technologies have also brought unprecedented threats with them. Cyber security - defined as the protection of systems, networks and data storage in cyberspace - is a critical issue for the market. More so as market firms find new and innovative ways to capture, store, analyze and share company data, they must also find secure ways to protect their information data assets - often the crown jewels of any organization.  

Delivered by Lloyd's market professionals and renowned security experts, this 75-minute thought provoking seminar will help demystify the latest cyber response curve and aid market firms (irrespective of size) to improve their defence programmes to ward off ‘inevitable' cyber-threats and attacks. As witnessed in the wake of numerous recent data breaches, successful cyber-attacks have the potential to be far-reaching – not only financially, but also in terms of brand and reputation damage, the loss of competitive advantage and regulatory non-compliance. 

These free to attend 'Security Matters' Briefings are tailored to the needs of C-Level, underwriters, brokers, IT, security, risk, legal, regulatory and compliance, analysts and finance professionals. If this event is relevant to other colleagues within your company then please forward this e-mail to them.

A walk in the digital shadows

In this talk, Chris Brown will demonstrate how cyber situational awareness can help you to lift the lid on your digital shadows and explore what lurks within. By analyzing the adversary through an “attacker’s eye view”, cyber situational awareness alerts organizations to potential threats, instances of sensitive data loss, or compromised brand integrity.  Simply put, those who understand what is going on around them are in a better position to make more informed business and security decisions.

Cyber Risk: Only normality will work

In this talk, Brian Lord will explain why the take-up of cyber protective measures is so inconsistent, and where Government, the IT Security Industry and the Media need to look at themselves as to the reasons why.  In this talk Brian will explain why the very organisations who claim to help protect the public and industry actually risk making the situation worse before it gets better, and what can be done for the risk to be normalised and treated as any other business risk.

The business of cyber attacks

In this talk, Russell Kempley will share insights on the industrialisation of cyber-attacks by organised crime, explain how criminals are increasing the impact of their attacks by taking time to first gain an intimate understanding of how your business works and, in the light of this, suggest some techniques that you can use to become more thick-skinned and better able to resist attacks. One such technique that Russell will introduce is intelligence-led penetration testing which was pioneered in 2015 by the Bank of England in its CBEST Scheme.
