IT Risk Identification and Disaster Recovery

Presentation Overview

Risk Identification is one of the phases described in the ISO31000 Risk Assessment process. This talk will explore this risk identification phase from an IT perspective: it will outline how to comprehensively identify IT Risks using a structured approach, thus getting better results to serve as solid foundations for subsequent phases of the risk assessment process. The subject will then shift to Disaster Recovery, a special area of Business Continuity that covers IT resiliency. Many experts consider information to be the most important item in the Business Continuity Program, and hence good Disaster Recovery practices at your organisation are crucial to ensure survival after a serious disruptive incident.

Speaker's Biography: Mr Mark Fenech (Senior Disaster Recovery Manager at Bank of Valletta)

The false sense of Security

Presentation Overview

Humans naturally and regularly assume and make inferences based on assumptions. In an information security perspective, these assumptions account for the majority of root cause in organisational security breaches. The presentation, based on the speaker’s attack centric training and homeland security experience, will help the audience to unmask the make believe that lulls organisations into a false sense of security.

SMART POLICING - Malta's experience in the fight against cybercrime

Presentation Overview

Malta is currently the smallest EU Member State in both population and area. Malta's small size hasn't, however, protected the Maltese population from new crimes that are being brought through the digital age. This presentation will provide an overview of the Malta Police Force's efforts in tackling cybercrime by providing practical examples of proactive and reactive measures that have been introduced throughout the past years.

The presentation will also serve as an eye-opener for the private industry about the potential ‘new’ risks that are being faced due to this ever-increasing phenomenon as well as providing basic tips on how cyber-incidents can be prevented and addressed.

Speaker's Biography: Inspector Timothy Zammit (Head of Cyber Crime Unit - Malta Police)
