Helping Businesses Accelerate Operational & Cyber Resilience

It’s no wonder businesses are struggling to navigate the ever-changing threat landscape with skills shortages and time constraints. Not to mention spiralling costs to insure against the increasing volume of cyber threats.

To remain operational should the worst happen, you need to achieve a balance between good cyber resilience and business strategy by integrating cyber security and risk management into your organisation.

According to research carried out by CSI at the start of the year, businesses are not confident their cyber insurance will cover their cyber risk. The true cost of ransomware is in fact much more when the cost of downtime and reputational damage is factored in.

The study found the technical controls deemed most important to security decision makers for building cyber resilience are network monitoring and establishing a Security Operations Centre (84%), and multi factor authentication (MFA) and endpoint detection and response (EDR/XDR) (both 83%).

We’ll share more insights from our research during the event.

For a different kind of conversation about security – from Zero Trust and NIST, to cyber insurance, operational resilience, and changing regulations, CSI invites you to join us at the F1 Arcade at St. Paul’s in London, for an insightful afternoon of presentations, panel discussions and networking.

Guests will have exclusive use of the F1 Arcade Briefing Room with access to the full-motion simulator racing experience!

After the presentations, you can enjoy some friendly, competitive F1 racing, while networking with colleagues and specialists from our partner ecosystem.

Note: the venue is fully wheelchair accessible with a floor-level entrance and toilets, and the simulators can be set up for hand-use only, if required.
