Overview

Cyber security attacks continue to dominate news headlines. Data breach costs can exceed £4 million. Global cybercrime costs could reach £5 trillion by 2021. As criminals find increasingly innovative ways to bypass software and controls, how can we shift the focus to resilience and active defence? How will interconnected systems be defended and by whom? How can we restore the public’s ‘crisis of trust’? Where is the line between data capture and privacy? Held under Chatham House rules, this event ​will highlight government and board-level discussions on how to drive cyber security resilience and compliance across the organisation.

Full Overview

Headlines about cyber security attacks continue to dominate the news. The global cost of cybercrime could increase to £5 trillion per year by 2021. High-profile organisations and individuals continue to be targeted for personal data theft, financial information leakages, and copyrighted material. The average cost of a data breach can exceed £4 million. Phishing, hacking and intellectual property (IP) or data theft are the most common forms of cyber crime affecting London businesses. SMEs have become increasingly earmarked as they are perceived as an easier target. As criminals find increasingly innovative ways to bypass detection and protection software and strategies, the focus must shift to reducing the impact of cyber attacks.

Whilst the continued explosion of connectivity and digitalisation, through new and emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), biometrics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and quantum computing enables new possibilities, there are economic and social vulnerabilities to consider. The level of coordination, standardisation and coding required is far more complex than anything previously attempted, how will these interconnected systems be defended and by whom? Can the public’s ‘crisis of trust’ be restored by new data-protection rules such as GDPR? Where is the right place to draw the line between data capture - or surveillance - and privacy? How can the multiple interdependent security layers with interconnected tools are flexible and adaptable so security measures can be continually future-proof for new technologies ie AI?

The majority of businesses and organisations understand the potential threat to their organisation’s reputation, integrity and direct business impact. Ensuring access to the range of solutions and strategies available is being driven from the top. There is recognition that part of the solution stems from embedding security at the design stage. The debate continues about the adoption of active defense models.

The annual FT Cyber Security Summit will continue to explore global cyber threats being faced and which business preparedness, resilience and solutions are required to ensure a robust defence. Leading cyber and data experts will talk about a range of issues, including preparing for what’s next, building a security-focussed corporate culture, maintaining credibility after a hack, and how to approach data privacy. Moderated by Financial Times journalists, this event will provide a thorough interactive assessment of the dangers in cyberspace and how businesses and governments are investing in better defences for a more secure future.

  • 2:40pm
    Cyber attack scenario planning: Building a security-focussed corporate culture across the Board

    CEOs must be ready to lead business recovery during a breach, by anticipating operational challenges and avoiding mistakes made by their peers.  This scenario planning panel considers the cascade of commercial consequences that follow a major cyber attack.  

    Panellists will explain how the shock, speed and ambiguity of a large data breach can paralyse large companies.  In large enterprises that have not rehearsed, a major cyber attack can even break the corporate crisis management process.  Company reputations can be damaged, revenues reduced and customers harmed by poor executive decision making.

    CEOs can develop a better appreciation of the value of their data as well as an improved knowledge of where it is kept and how it is protected.  This panel will consider several of the Executive Decision Points that confront operational leaders during an effective boardroom simulation. The audience will also be invited to consider issues around:

    • Triage: Where to deploy limited resources
    • Collaboration: Who to involve and call on for support
    • Values: How to make urgent decisions during extended uncertainty

  • 3:40pm
    Closing keynote: How to maintain credibility after a hack with multiple stakeholders

    In the new age of trust individuals can have more sway than traditional institutions, and customers are now social influencers who define brands. Therefore following a security breach, it is vital that the media response is part of the recovery phase. This keynote will explore the following areas:

    • If there is a breach, what are the options for first response? Should the alarm be raised immediately, or does admitting to the breach represent a further security risk?
    • Numerous stakeholders must be informed but how should the message differ to ensure the company retains control of the information?
    • What is the role of social media?
    • Is a crisis response team and external communications policy in place and do the teams understand their roles and obligations?
  • 4:05pm
    Chair's closing remarks
  • 4:10pm
    Networking drinks reception
