Cybersecurity Series: Creating an incident response plan

The last webinar in the Cybersecurity Series willh help you prepare to successfully avert and dealing with cyber attacks.

Being prepared is the key to successfully averting and dealing with cyber attacks, but having a practical incident response plan avoids panic and confusion when a threat is experienced, minimising loss and reputational damage.

Suppliers into the mining sector need to be particularly aware of causing disruptions to customers’ operations which could result in significant losses.  Participants in this webinar will be given practical instructions to formulate and implement an incident response plan geared towards minimising disruption and downtime, and securing valuable data.

Topics include:

  • Documenting the common types of security incidents
  • Prioritising security incidents based on their severity
  • Creating an incident response flowchart with the steps to follow
  • Conducting mock-ups and training your staff
  • Logging the incident
  • Keeping your incident response plan up to date

Cybersecurity Readiness Series

Organisations of all sizes are facing unprecedented cybersecurity threats, with an astounding 300,000 (Web Arx Security) pieces of new malware created every day.  The approximately 64% of companies that experienced a cyber attack in 2021 alone, suffered compromised data, loss of income, business disruption and reputational damage.

For SMEs in the METS sector the threat is particularly marked since it fundamentally affects the way in which they can enter and remain a trusted part of global supply and value chains.
The threat can, however, be met head on with the right knowledge, preparation, and culture of awareness.

To give METS companies the tools and confidence to be cyber ready, we have designed a Cyber Readiness Series that is practical, relevant and immediately implementable.

These webinars are designed to be clear and accessible to all METS businesses, regardless of size, and technical ICT expertise.  They’re focussed on creating an awareness of key cybersecurity issues and fostering a culture of cyber readiness within each participating organisation, all while assisting participants with formulating practical policies and incident response plans.

The program will be presented by Australia’s first Cyber Readiness Institute certified Cyber Readiness Coach.
