Speaker: Zuzana Bitterova, Director, BITTER Solutions Ltd.

Summary of event:
When risk is inevitable, a company’s response to it becomes critical. 

Companies face a number of risks in today’s global business climate regardless of the size — from cyber risk to natural disaster readiness to supply chain disruption. The link between an ISMS view and the Information Risk aspects of a system are obvious! Often leaders don’t admit that a disaster can strike their organisation, at least not on their watch. So they don’t prepare for it, and fail to make the necessary investments…while training the team and increasing team’s capabilities might be the only way to keep the organisation strong and competitive over the longer period…

Be the strength that changes the status quo of your organisation.
Learn how to achieve the best “IS” fitness level using methods of strength training.
We hope this session to be a fully interactive one in which we share our experiences and learn from each other.
