While most government, military, and defense industry individuals are aware that an emergency is a critical event, it can even go so far as to impinge on the life of a nation. A disaster, unless controlled, causes what is best characterized as ‘battle fog’ and a lack of information which will dramatically and negatively affect an organization, a country, and its people. This drastic disruption can suddenly change routines, hijack the daily lives of citizens, and even interrupt the ability of institutions to govern.
Most times, a crisis is sudden, catastrophic, and high intensity, and if an organization lacks the ability to immediately contain it, it can have calamitous results. In order to mitigate a disaster, minimize damages, and get back to business as soon as possible, a crisis needs to be anticipated and centrally managed. There must be joint cooperation amongst all parties working toward solving it.
With this in mind, the Crisis Management Conference will include debates and discourse on decision-making, selection of tools, acquisition of vital knowledge, and exposure to various methodologies needed to face and overcome an assortment of emergencies.
Presenters will include various world-renowned speakers who will participate in panel discussions, conduct special interviews, and proffer lectures on the follow main topics:
This topic will review case studies in detail and include information on coordinating security response during emergencies. It will showcase new models, comprehensive solutions, and wide-ranging strategies in both local and global arenas, and examine ways for military and civil organizations to coordinate and achieve a high level of crisis management.
To effectively contend and cope with a cyber-crisis, numerous preliminary preparations are crucial. Putting such actions in place prior to an attack will improve its management, mitigate damages, reduce negative ramifications, and shorten its duration.
Despite all this, taking essential precautions is not always possible in the time leading up to an attack. Understanding and mastering how to counter an attack once it has already occurred is also of vital importance. As such, included in the seminar will be a demonstration of a ransomware crisis and coping strategies/solutions including: prevention, detection, containment, and recovery.
