Montash and Mandiant, a FireEye Company, successfully hosted a cybersecurity breakfast briefing on Thursday 15th May at the Grand Connaught Rooms, Holborn, London.

The two-hour session was attended by a wide variety of security experts as both a networking event and a discussion forum. A large number of senior level experts were in attendance to discuss the current threat of cybersecurity against businesses and what could be done to prevent it.

The keynote speaker panel included leading cybersecurity experts, including Chief Information Security Officer of Vodafone UK, Howard Pinto; Mandiant Director of Security Consulting Services, Paul C Dwyer; and the Chief Information Security Officer of DHL Supply Chain, Neil Jarvis.

One of the key issues highlighted during the discussion was how board-level buy-in is essential for organisations to be cybersafe. It is time for boards to see CISOs at board level to protect the organisations and for cybersecurity to be considered as a core function for businesses to remain cyberthreat free.

Opening the event at 8.30am was Montash’s own Chief Executive Officer, Andy Larholt. He briefly discussed the importance of finding cybersecurity talent so that firms were equipped with the right skills to safeguard themselves. Mr Dwyer took to the stand at 8.40am to talk about identifying and attacking security gaps in business, before Mr Pinto took over at 8.55am to discuss how Vodafone is combating the complex and tricky area of cyber

security. Mr Jarvis finished with a discussion about cybercrime in the supply chain, before a 30-minute session of questions and networking took place.

The event was considered a great success by all in attendance, and Montash hopes that it has raised the profile of cybercrime and the vital need to put security measures in place. Another briefing is currently being planned for those who missed the event, with industry insiders advised to keep an eye out for the date.
