"There are two types of company - those who know they have been hacked, and those who don't."   In this presentation, Jim Noble and Alan Guibord will discuss the materiality of the risks posed by cyber threats. Jim will provoke debate by justifying his controversial views that many enterprises don't care, most enterprises don't know, and almost all enterprises are incapable of effective response. Jim will cite case studies that show the extent of the problem, and then go on to describe approaches for prevention, detection and reaction.
