Cyber Risk Symposium. Secure your success.

Aon, DLA Piper and Symantec held a Cyber Risk Symposium in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in August 2016.

We provided a 360 degree view of cyber risk, and had industry experts from the technology, legal and insurance industries share their experience and knowledge. Here you can find some of the key tools and insights from the event.

Key insights from the event

Identify the black hats: Professor Greg Austin from the Australian Centre for Cyber Security said that there are nine major sources of attack. Working out which of your data is most vulnerable and who or what is most likely to go after it are important first steps in taking control of cyber security.

Map your cyber borders: The rules about information systems are in flux. DLA Piper partner Scott Thiel said organisations needed to be aware of the different rules around the world, and work out the most effective way to comply. Taking a smart approach can deliver a competitive edge.

Implement technology protections: Tim Fitzgerald chief security officer and VP Symantec said organisations should deploy modern technologies and smart processes to limit the risk of attack, and identify breaches early. And since cyber criminals are constantly on the move it’s critical to update security technology and refresh education programmes regularly.

Insure appropriately: There’s a point where the benefits of additional security technology investment diminishes, and companies need instead to turn to cyber insurance to reduce risk. Kevin Kalinich, Aon’s global cyber practice leader, said organisations needed to rigorously assess exposures and seek appropriate insurance cover.
