In his presentation, Krzysztof Cudak shared knowledge of both what information should be distributed in case of a hacker attack and the way it should be announced. Building the sense of control was in focus of Krzysztof’s presentation as well.
"I am positive about the Cybercrime 2015 workshops. I think that raising security awareness in business environment is of utter importance. The workshop programme drew my attention and I considered it meaningful and interesting at the same time. That is why I was glad to be a presenter and an active participant at the same time.”, says Krzysztof Cudak.
The conference covered a wide variety of topics. Krzysztof admitted that he had a chance to gain the latest updates on cyber attacks targeting production systems or legal responsibility in case of a cyber attack. In his presentation, Krzysztof explained how to, for example, insure oneself against a cyber attack by purchasing a suitable insurance policy.
"Cyber attacks are getting more and more common. Apparently, people are interested in taking proper steps in case of a cyber attack. That is why the conference was so popular with the participants who were willing to take the opportunity and ask a lot of questions. Even if the answer was not given on the spot, they had a chance to make a reference to their problem during a workshop or behind the scenes.”, says Krzysztof Cudak.
