Event description

Description

Cyber threats are on the rise – but many NZ companies and organisations under-estimate them.

According to the latest World Economic Forum Report on risk, business leaders in advanced economies see cyber attacks as the global risk of highest concern – ahead of terrorist attacks. The annual economic cost of cybercrime is estimated at more than $1 trn. Yet most firms tend not to have plans in place to respond to cyber attacks. Most of the $1 trn annual cost is not insured. And there’s a worrying trend for cyber attacks against critical infrastructure.

New Zealand companies cannot afford to be complacent.

Dr Joe Burton is an expert on regional responses to cyber security and other transnational security challenges.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Dress code: smart business
