Falling victim to a cyber attack is something organisations fear. So why do many fail to implement the controls to help protect themselves?
In this talk Les will discuss a real world security incident, the investigation that followed and the steps that could have been taken to prevent it.
This talk is an opportunity to learn from someone else’s mistakes and will highlight key actions that can be taken by you and your organisation to help protect against similar incidents.
