The Alliances chapter is a gathering consisting of business risk, information and cyber security leaders who have been highlighted as being able to offer value in terms of content and influence. It is designed to form alliances and to drive progressive change in the business world and beyond.

The content and format is designed to talk together, learn better and experience more. 

Format:

KnowBe4 in partnership with the CISO Alliances would like to host a limited number of the community (existing and wide) for a benchmarking meet around “Sec Culture 2024”

Chatham House Rule will be applied

Part of the Chapter will be gamified led by Amy Stokes-Waters and the Cyber Escape Room concept.  Who will manage the incident the best?

Session Leader: Amy Stokes- Waters, CEO – The Cyber Escape Room Co

Session Theme Title: We’re in a bit of a pickle.

Session Overview and Synopsis:

The CEO of Foogle (definitely not Google) has been hit with a ransomware attack. Uh-oh!

The CEO has done some investigation already but seems to have given up and gone into hiding, so you’ve been left in charge of sorting this thing out. The only things left behind were a locked briefcase, phone, wallet and a notebook.

You have one hour before the attacker releases our sensitive information to Rupert Murdoch and his cronies, damaging our reputation with clients beyond repair. Good luck!
