We are pleased to announce that our next event will take place on Wednesday 21th October:


Cyber Security in Belgium: Are firms prepared to meet today’s cyber threats?

The venue is kindly provided by KPMG (Avenue du Bourgetlaan 40, 1130 Brussels)

Topic:
Cyber security is a persistent business risk with an impact that can now extend from the executive board to the organization’s bottom line. The risk is constant and serious, but are Belgian firms prepared to defend against, and detect modern cyber threats?

Concern over cyber threats has reached a high as more and more firms are discovering breaches and vulnerabilities within their internal networks. Businesses have been discovering previously unknown threats within their network and consequently suffering from reputational damage and direct business losses.
In order to better understand the threats companies are currently facing, KPMG in Belgium organized a study to analyze network traffic inside 10 different enterprises operating in varying sectors in Belgium. The goal of the study was to determine whether unknown threats were hiding within organizations’ infrastructure and if current information security practices and technology were effectively preventing and detecting these threats.

In this session, we will discuss:
• The current cyber threat landscape in Belgium and globally with real world examples
• The results of KPMG’s Cyber Security Study in Belgium
• A look at the cloud and what it means from a risk perspective
