Talk 1: Hostage Negotiation, Cyber Extortion, Critical Incident Handling and You!

“To Pay or Not To Pay used to be the question, now, Are You Ready to Negotiate?”

What are the lessons from state-of-the-art Hostage Negotiation and Critical Incident Handling via law enforcement and other global expert geopolitical and terrorist incident handlers that can be applied to cyber-attacks and incidents? Are we ready to support our C-suite, board executives and businesses through an extortion incident? When a major crypto-malware strikes a client, are we ready? Do we understand the psychology of our opponents during an incident? Are we truly engaged using all our resources to derive maximum harm mitigation and optimal outcomes? When things go really really wrong, do we know where, how and who to go for help supporting us through a stressful time?
