Cyber Security: Handling Attacks and Preventing Future Strikes LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

In disaster relief and humanitarian response, there is often little or no security presence and very few IT staff to support it. Consequently, security incidents may go unnoticed by the victims. Cisco Tactical Operations has been able to document active cyberattacks against humanitarian organizations during the responses to Ebola in West Africa, Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu and the earthquake in Nepal. This session will share information about these attacks and ideas about how organizations might better secure their field operations in resource-limited environments.
