    Speaker:
    Cameron Whittfield, Partner & Head of APAC Cyber Security, Herbert Smith Freehills

    Venue:
    Recorded at the NSW State Library in October 2023 as part of the ‘Class Actions: navigating
    the evolving risk landscape’ half-day seminar
     
    As the digital threat landscape evolves and we contend with some of the most challenging
    geopolitical tensions in recent memory, corporate Australia continues to face-off against the
    scourge of cyber criminals. Companies dealing with a material cyber incident are required to
    make business-critical decisions in real-time, often with limited information and while
    contending (and often negotiating) with a sophisticated criminal enterprise. This a business
    challenge unlike any we’ve had to manage before and the way we respond will define us. The
    keynote address will take a closer look at the dark underworld of our cyber-criminal
    adversaries. We will take you ‘into the crisis room’ and step through the unique features of an
    extortion negotiation. We will also consider the myriad of legal issues that arise both during
    and after an attack and consider how basic cyber hygiene and cyber resilience can help
    mitigate the impacts.
