Why: Cyber breaches & hacks are rampant today with $$ being lost.

• 80% - of cyber breaches originate in the supply chain
• 43% - of all cyber attacks target SMB enterprises
• $6.5 million – the average enterprise cost of a data breach
• 60% - of small businesses fail within 6 months of a cyber attack

Steve Rosenbush, of the Wall Street Journal, said, “Make cybersecurity a top priority. Shockingly, it isn’t”  (9-20-17)

FedEx just “slashed $300 million from its quarterly profit, due to the NotPetya virus attack on its TNT Express unit. Maersk says, “it will cost the company between $200 million and $300 million because system shutdowns halted a large part of the firm’s operations”.

Now cyber criminals are going after the smaller players across the supply chain – carriers, manufacturers and logistics service providers. How much risk exposure do you have?

What: Key topics we will discuss with our local experts - with Q&A:

• Examples – with details – of cyber attacks in the supply chain.
• Cyber risk management – your enterprise + your ecosystem of partners.
• Cyber risks & exposures – the business & legal environment.
• Cyber hygiene – a vital cyber risk management practice.
• Cyber risk insurance – who needs it, why, when, what is it?

Who should attend: All managers & practitioners: executive, operational, financial, IT – in any aspect of the supply chain – who have data of value: “data rarely stays within a company’s building anymore.”
