BCI Australasian Chapter Hybrid Event

The BCI Australasian Chapter held a hybrid meeting on Thursday 1 September 2022, kindly hosted by QBE at 388 George St Sydney. 

Approximately 60 BCI members and guests attended both physically and online.

QBE Insurance Group Limited presented on how they use real-time event and risk detection systems and processes to help strengthen their global intelligence and resilience capabilities.  

F24 presented on the steps that we can take in the event of a Cyber Attack, by walking through a brief Cyber Security Simulation and showing how the response would be managed using an ‘out of band’ or SaaS solution platform to aid response, management, communication and collaboration of the situation, especially if normal business IT network or tools are unavailable.

The session was facilitated by Shaun Allingham, BCI Australasian Chapter Committee Member.
