The Cyber Risk Meetup is back! More than 120 members meet regularly every quarter to hear from esteemed industry panels and our Executive leaders. With the ever changing landscape of our digital world, it is important to continually equip our community with the various aspects of managing Cyber Risks. Cyber Risk can exist in an almost limitless number of forms, ranging from natural disasters, or catastrophic accidental events, to the external malicious and calculated attacks, to even the insider threat or human mistakes.


In this Cyber Risk Meetup's session, we will hear from a number of speakers who have taken the time out to share their observations and experiences. Due to the venue limitations, we have limited capacity so RSVP ASAP to avoid missing out!
