In this session, we want to bring you a few things you might not have thought of until now. First, we’ll hear about the tool the Federation of Belgian Companies (VBO-FEB) has created to help companies make sure they are fulfilling all their obligations when hit by a cyber incident. Then, Verizon will show how to learn from the abundance of breaches that have happened to other companies. We’ll wrap up with real-life experiences from 9altitudes that illustrate best practices for preparing your response to cyber incidents.

(in French) Hacked and down? You still have legal obligations!

During a cyber incident, we may be so caught up with the most urgent issues that we lose sight of other actions that must be taken. The Federation of Belgian Companies (VBO – FEB) has put together (with several stakeholders) a brochure to help companies that are victims of a cyber incident with their internal organisation and interaction with external contacts, in particular public authorities. We’ll learn about this tool and the proposed aid avenues to get through a cyber event while continuing our activities as best as possible and fulfilling our legal obligations.

  • How can IT leaders learn from others’ past breaches to ensure a more secure future for their own organisations?
  • What are the key findings of the DBIR 2023, enriched with Verizon’s own incident response experience?
  • How should you respond to security incidents and protect your organisation?
