Topic: "3 Key Strategies to Build your Defence Plan to Protect your Practice against Cyber Attack"

On 24th May 2019 at the Metropolitan Hotel 263 Williams St Melbourne we will bring together Australia’s most knowledgeable Cyber Security speakers who will present to Accountants and Lawyers their most current insights into cyber attacks on Law Firms and Accounting Practices with solutions to prevent and recover from them.

As Accountants and Lawyers MUST now be compliant to 2018 Data Breach Laws, demonstrating they have built a Defence Plan by taking steps to protect their business, the Cynosura Cyber Security Summit will provide Accountants and Lawyers access to the right people to show them what they need to know and the steps to take to start put their plan together.

In this ONE DAY only “hands on” event Accountants and Lawyers will make a start on building their own Defence Plan.

Tax deductible and earning CPD points, this full day event is CRUCIAL to any Accountant or Lawyer who has wanted to put a Defence Plan together but does not know where to start or has begun and not found the time to complete it.

Accountants and Lawyers are the prime target and this a war is not going away-you will be sooner rather than later.

Accountants and Lawyers walk away with the following outcomes:

Knowledge of most current threat landscape to your business, armoury to include in your Defence Plan to protect and e-data law compliance.
Strategy steps to build your defence plan to meet compliance requirements at a budget you can afford and in line with your business structure and operations.
How to use Cyber Insurance as both a preventative and recovery tool in your Defence Plan because it is NOT the panacea to a complete Defence plan rather an integral component of one.
