APIG NSW Cyber in Focus Session - "Cyber Security: the Human Dimension"

22 May 2019


APIG NSW is pleased to continue its series Cyber in Focus sessions, following our successful inaugural session last year.


In our next series, we focus on the human dimension of cyber security.  It is often said that cyber is much more than just an IT problem but very much a human behavioural problem.  This is true of the causes of cyber incidents, the motivations behind threat actors and the way in which businesses go about responding to incidents.  We will explore these themes in this session.  The full programme is below.




State of the global cyber market

Tim Stapleton

Senior Vice President, Cyber Insurance Product Manager & Information Technology Practice Leader, Chubb Overseas General

Presentation: In the mind of the hacker

Get into the mind of a hacker. An examination of the psychological factors at play and how this helps understand the motives of a threat actor, the likely trajectory of an incident, the risks and losses that arise and the best means to respond.

Ahmed Khanji

CEO & Founder of Gridware Cybersecurity

Panel Discussion: The impact of the human factor on cyber risk and response

It is often said that the weakest link in cyber security is simple human error. We explore the role of employees in keeping a company's cyber defences secure. How does an understanding of this area help in underwriting cyber risk? Psychology also plays a part in responding to cyber incidents. How can breach response ensure that affected individuals are 'alert but not alarmed' and how is psychology relevant to assessing whether there is a risk of serious harm? Hear our panellists discuss these issues and more.
