Testimonials from CIPR Workshop
Excellent workshop with a lot of good hints, not only for security staff, but also for management in order to understand the nature of attacks and the mitigation of vulnerabilities in order to reduce the impact during an incident.

The expectation was exceeded, especially the examples from incidents and hits.
