Virtual Event: Cyber Incident Response

Tuesday 22 June, 2021 | 11:00 AM AEST | Online

Creating and executing a fast and effective incident response

With cyber threats continuously on the rise, and the dire consequences that occur as a result of an attack, preparing for these is critical if government is to retain public confidence and trust.

Identifying systems and information critical to business operations, creating disaster recovery plans, continuously updating and testing your incident response plan, and improving detection capabilities are just a few of the areas of focus for Government to ensure it remains secure and can respond rapidly to incidents.

Public Sector Network’s Cyber Incident Response Virtual Event will highlight strategies and vulnerabilities and help foster a collaborative approach within the government to drive better cyber resilience and public trust.
