MCF21 Q2: Cyber Resilience

June 29, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Dear MDBC members,

Cyber resilience goes beyond preventing or responding to a breach. It’s your ability to operate during, adapt to, and recover from a cyber – attack. If your organization has a high level of cyber resilience, a cyber – attack is much less likely to hamper your business operations. Businesses will be able to protect their data, reduce the impact of disruption, and prevent devastating revenue loss.

We have entered a new digital era. With the advent of 5G and exponential growth in all areas of digitalization, business leaders and government agencies need to expand their idea of what cyber security is and go beyond defense and reaction to include anticipation and business continuity. Businesses needs to take the necessary steps towards achieving cyber resilience to stay ahead of threats, create a secure cyber environment, and improve your ability to get through an attack unscathed.  Speakers from Novem CS, KPMG’s Cyber Security unit, and CyberSecurity Malaysia will discuss ‘The New Era of Technology and Risks‘, and how you and your company can take the necessary steps towards achieving cyber resilience to stay ahead of threats, create a secure cyber environment for your organization and employees, and improve your ability to get through an attack unscathed.
