Network security is absolutely critical, but before you hook up the alarm you also need to better understand what you are trying to protect and proportionally weight your efforts towards those assets which are business-critical and that give the company its competitive edge.
Getting this right is even more important in the current COVID environment, which has forced companies to adopt technology and enable new ways of working at speed without necessarily having all the right checks and balances in place. On the back of this, we have seen an increase in cyber-attacks, scams and phishing, which is putting pressure on the already stretched resources of many organisations.
So how can good cyber practices help combat and protect not only the individual but companies and more importantly the country. How can we use this global pandemic to get ahead of the curve and increase our protection?
Hear from Sir John Key on his role on Cyber and his views on how New Zealand compares to the world.
Learn from our experts who will share insights, case studies and practical advice on why good cyber practice means not only securing the perimeter but also understanding what you’re protecting, from who and how best to mitigate these risks.
Join us on this webinar to hear from industry experts and government.

Emerging Cyber threats: why this is not just a business risk
The COVID-19 pandemic has proved that no one is immune to cyber-crime, with both businesses and individuals being targeted by the phishing and other scams which soared during the crisis, as more people worked and studied from home.
While many New Zealand businesses are aware of the commercial cyber risk landscape and are putting into place risk management practices and insurance protections to limit their organisation’s exposure, the risks are just as real for individuals and families. Cyber criminals are targeting personal devices and home networks, which don’t have the same level of corporate protections in place, for credential harvesting and possible identity theft, or ransoming your data.
We will discuss the NZ landscape and impacts of cyber crime, the DynaRisk tool which allows you to monitor your personal information for dark web breaches, and how Delta insurance’s latest product offering can help protect families, not just businesses, against the growing cyber risks we all face.
