The event will educate decision makers on risk management strategies amid increasing cyber threats.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., September 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — R9B (root9B, LLC), a leading provider of advanced cybersecurity solutions, announced today that it will be partnering with the cloud service specialists at Zivaro (formerly GTRI) to deliver a live, half-day presentation and expert panel on cyber risk management. The event will take place on October 10 at the Field House in Denver, Colorado. Press is welcome and encouraged to attend.

The October conference coincides with National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which serves as a reminder that cyber risk is one of the most critical issues facing organizations today. Amid recurrent cyberattacks on consumer-facing companies, fears of election tampering, and threats to critical infrastructure, organizations need a plan for safeguarding against the impacts of cyberattacks. This conference will cover key strategic considerations. The event will feature discussions on the current state of cyber insurance and what to look for when evaluating plans, the role of threat intelligence in assessing risk, and how to integrate incident response to create a holistic cyber protection strategy.

R9B’s Threat Intelligence Strategist, Keith Smith, stated, “We have been encouraged by the steady rise in board-level interest in cybersecurity matters. The potential for significant impacts to both businesses and consumers makes cyber risk management a matter of existential consideration; something organizations of all kinds should be including in long-term, high-level planning. We are excited to partner with Zivaro to deliver this vital educational seminar to business leaders.”

Increasing reliance on technology has resulted in new risk exposure. Cyber insurance is new to the insurance market compared to other lines of cover. However, it is evolving to meet modern exposures. Cyber Insurance is a key strategic consideration in an organization’s cyber resilience profile.

Darla Lindt, CyRM, a leading cyber insurance expert, who educates business leaders on cyber policies as part of their cyber protection plan said, “cyber insurance is a lifeline to businesses that have experienced a cyberattack…it’s that important.”

This event is open to anyone interested in learning more about cyber risk management. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis and seating is limited to 60.
