October 20, 2022 @ 1:30 PM British Summer Time (UK)

The NTSC is delighted to host our first International CISO Policy Roundtable in London, England on October 20th at the Microsoft Experience Centre.

CISA Session: International Cybersecurity Partnership

Julie Johnson, UK Attaché, Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency

Julie Johnson is the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency’s (CISA) first Attaché, serving in the United Kingdom. She serves as a focal point for international collaboration between CISA, UK government officials, and other U.S. federal agency officials. Julie will joins us to discuss how her new role as UK Attaché will advance CISA’s missions in cybersecurity, critical infrastructure protection, and emergency communications, and leverage the agency’s global network to promote CISA’s international strategic goals

Cyber Reporting Requirements

Jamie Taylor, Senior Management Director, DWF Law LLP

Jamie Taylor, data protection & cyber security law expert, specializing in breach response and litigation arising out of data protection & cyber disputes, will join us to discuss the cyber incident reporting requirements in NIS 1 and NIS 2 compared to the cyber incident and ransomware payment reporting requirements in the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act of 2022 (CIRCIA) signed by President Biden on March 15. How does a UK/EU company with significant presence in the U.S. navigate NIS 2 & CIRCIA? How will the SEC’s proposed rule for publicly traded companies impact already existing cyber incident reporting legislation? Should there be a ban on paying ransomware payments? Does the conflict in the Ukraine play have an impact on how nations and companies should be thinking about ransomware payments?

Proofpoint Session: Voice of the CISO

Lucia Milică, Vice President and Global Resident Chief Information Security Officer, Proofpoint

Lucia Milică, VP and Global Resident CISO at Proofpoint, will share key findings from the 2022 Voice of the CISO report that illustrates the challenges facing CISOs across the globe. The report, which surveyed 1,400 CISOs across 14 countries, explores three key areas: the threat risk and types of cyber attacks CISOs combat daily, the levels of employee and organizational preparedness to face them, and the impact of supporting a hybrid workforce as businesses prepare to re-open their corporate offices. It also covers the challenges CISOs face in their roles, position amongst the C-suite, and business expectations of their teams

Microsoft Session: Ransomware

Kelly Bissell, Corporate Vice President of Security Service, Microsoft Corporation

While firms strive to defend against cyber intrusions, especially ransomware, the reality is that many firms are being successfully attacked. According to a recent report from Cyber Security Ventures, an organization fell victim to ransomware every 11 seconds in 2021. Kelly Bissell, Corporate Vice President & Global Lead for Microsoft’s Security Services, and Aldo di Somma, Senior Architect with CRSP (Compromise & Recovery Security Practice), a worldwide team of cybersecurity experts with deep expertise in securing an environment post-security breach, will join us to discuss real-world case scenarios and provide guidance to help you prevent a breach in the first place.
