Cyber incident response plan: Stay sharp and inspired! (N-sight)

Location:virtual meeting


Cyber attacks have increased dramatically over the past year. Almost every week, we read about organisations being victims of hackers. Sometimes, they only have to pause the impacted activities for a short while, but in other cases, they end up paying a ransom after days of uncertainty and insecurity.


So most organisations don't need convincing that a cyber incident response plan is important. However, developing one and keeping it alive can become just another task on a long to-do list.


In this session, we will try to inspire you with ways to keep sharp. First Verizon will share the fundamentals of a cyber incident response plan, with some key insights on what organisations tend to forget. Next, the Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium (CCB) will discuss the updated version of their ‘Incident Management Guide’. They are currently preparing SafeOnWeb4Business, a CCB program to support Belgian business and other organisations to become more cyber-secure. Finally, we will hear from Etex about how they use their cyber incident response plan to create an effective security ecosystem. We will end with a short panel discussion with the different speakers, based on your questions and comments.








This event will be held as an interactive virtual meeting. The link will be provided in the Confirmation email.








13:30 Welcome and introduction


Levi Nietvelt, Business Manager, Beltug (English)


13:40 A strong foundation for your cyber incident response plan


What are the foundational elements for ‘what good looks like’ in a well-developed cyber incident response plan? What other company procedures and protocols does it need to consider, and work with or alongside, to ensure the efficient and effective management of a cyber incident? Finally, what do organisations typically leave out?


Phillip Larbey, Managing Principal – Head of VTRAC EMEA, Verizon (English)


14:10 Prepare, to be better prepared!  


The updated Incident Management Guide, published by the Cybersecurity Coalition, presents a cycle that consists of preparation, detection, incident containment, mitigation and recovery. Communication with both internal and external stakeholders is critical throughout the entire cycle. We all know that better incident management preparation means lower impact from an incident. But how can we make sure that our organisation is one of those that prepared well and in a timely way?


Karl Dobbelaere, Policy Manager, Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium (English)


14:40 Cyber security incident response as an enabler to Connect & Care


Connect & Care is a core value at Etex, which understands that people working together are the essential driver of a sustainable future. Cyber security management has become an enabler to provide people with the tools they need to collaborate effectively. During this session, you will hear how the Etex Group organises cyber security incident response, from a technical, organisational and ecosystem approach. The work Etex Group has done and continues to do has been a continuous journey towards creating an effective security ecosystem.
