In a world where cyber and ransomware attacks are at an all-time high and proving increasingly sophisticated, it's becoming ever more apparent that it's a matter of not if but when your organisation faces such a threat. 

Last year alone there were over 490 million ransomware attacks worldwide.

Join us for a fabulous evening of discussion, networking and fine dining at the fantastic Beau Rivage , recently voted as the best Hotel in Switzerland.

With its award-winning food and wine and stunning waterfront views, the perfect setting for a sumptuous and entertaining evening. If you are a digital leader , we would love for you to join us.          

When threat turns into a full-scale attack, do you know what to do? How sophisticated – and up-to-date – are your mitigation plans? And, in particular, do you know how long it will take you to recover one of your most valuable assets – your data? Hours? Days? Weeks? Months?

It is the threat of Ransomware and what to do about it that will form the basis of this specially-arranged CIONET executive dinner, brought to you in association with Hitachi Vantara & Veritas. 

You’ll be among other IT and security leaders from the region, and you will hear from expert speakers who will explain how powerful approaches to recovery are revolutionising IT strategies. Across the entire IT and business stack – from accelerated change management to security control validation, from pen testing to application, compute, network, and data recovery – we’ll explore the right security strategies for today’s IT environment.

Among the themes we will explore:

  • What is the best strategy to prepare for – and respond to – a ransomware attack?
  • What does best practice planning look like?
  • If cyber security is a team sport, who are the key players? And what are their roles and responsibilities?
  • Is a third back-up data center / cloud environment overkill or necessary in the current environment?
  • Is immutability of data a realistic goal?

Whether you are a CISO or a similarly senior security professional – or if you are a leading member of the IT department with overview of information security – this is the event for you.

A fascinating and insightful evening awaits. It will be a chance to meet with peers, to explore practical solutions, and to uncover best practice. And it all takes place in the Private Dining Room of the wonderful Beau Rivage . Please register and secure your place for the evening as soon as possible.
