With One Cyberattack, Everything Changed. What’s Next?

In an era already mired in unprecedented disruption, intelligence agencies say the supply chain attack involving SolarWinds exposed scores of large organizations to the possible probing of a foreign nation-state actor. In public agencies and private enterprise alike, CISOs are in the war room, once again facing a common threat. Are you asking the right questions, and taking the right actions, to ensure your organization will endure?

Join this town hall session to discuss:

  • Organization-wide responses and impacts from the SolarWinds incident

  • Prudent methodology to vet and validate trust and security with third-party vendors

  • Action plans going forward
