Time 05/18/16 08:45AM-10:00AM
Cyber-attacks can be extremely damaging. Costs range from stolen funds and damaged systems to regulatory fines, legal damages,financial compensation for injured parties, loss of business partner trust and loss of integrity due to compromised digital assets, Being resilient to cyber-risks starts with knowing about the risks to research and education institutions, an understanding of the biggest threats, and which assets are at greatest risk. Who could potentially target your organization, and for what reasons? Which assets are attackers likely to view as most valuable? What are the possible scenarios for attack, and what is the potential impact to your business?
Insight into cyber-threats allows organizations to develop appropriate risk mangement and provide guidance that helps internal and external security professionals reduce your risk exposure to an acceptable level through a well-balanced cyber-defense. Although it's never possible for any organization to be 100% secure, it is entirely possible to use a mix of processes for prevention, detection, and response to keep cyber-risk below a level set by the board and enable an organization to operate with less disruption.
