The cyber threat landscape is grim.  It is unusual for a week to go by without an attack being publicised. This has led to cyber security being tabled as a board agenda item for major corporations who treat cyber as a risk item.   This presentation will shift focus away from the known-knowns to how to be resilient in the face of unknown-unknowns in the real world.  It will be followed with a brief update on availability of cyber insurance, what does it cover and what will it cost?
