Mitigating Cyber Risks: How to Protect Against Vulnerabilities

Chatham House, London


Nicolas Reys, Head, Cyber Threat Intelligence, Control Risks

Emily Taylor, Associate Fellow, International Security, Chatham House

Chair: Greg Williams, Editor, WIRED UK


The last two years have seen a number of high-profile cyberattacks on public and private institutions, including multi-million dollar virtual bank heists, attempted disruption of the US electoral process, and malware such as the Wannacry virus that affected more than 200,000 people in over 150 different countries.

Our panellists will analyse the effect of recent cyberattacks and malware threats on governments and businesses around the world. How is the nature of these attacks evolving? How do governments and businesses prepare for and prevent this kind of threat? And, in the worst case scenario that an attack succeeds, what best practices can institutions implement to respond to and mitigate the fallout?

This event is open to corporate members only.

To enable a full and frank discussion, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

This event will be preceded by an informal, welcome reception from 12:15.
