I was pleased to do a cyber defence basics presentation to privacy professionals attending the Public Service Information Community Connection “Maritime Connections” event yesterday. The presentation (below) is based off of recent publications by the New York Department of Financial Services and the Information Commissioner’s Office (UK) as as the (significant) Coveware Q3 ransomware report.
As I said to the attendees, I am not a technical expert and no substitute for one, but those of us outside of IT and IT security who work in this space (along with the predominantly non-technical management teams we serve) must engage with the key technical concepts underpinning IT security if we are to succeed at cyber defence.
I’ll do an updated version next week at Saskatchewan Connections next week. Join us!
