Topic: Crisis management: When a crisis strikes do you fight or flight?
Hosted by the AISA Sydney Branch, please join our panellists Angela Coble, Cheryl Hayman and John Taylor for an online discussion on when it comes to managing a cyber security crisis, should you fight or flight?

When a crisis strikes, there are many actions organisations should take to minimise the impact on the business. Having a cyber security crisis management plan will help you respond more quickly to cyber attacks, deliver consistent communication to internal and external stakeholders, and take timely remedial actions.

A successful crisis management plan should consider the following:
- Impact on business
- Financial or reputation consequences
- Effect on people – staff, partners, suppliers and customers
- Information, data and technology

Join this session to hear from our speakers as they share their experiences in successfully managing a business from a serious cyber security attack.
