Mandatory Incident Reporting – what’s in it for me?
Many jurisdictions are implementing mandatory cyber incident reporting requirements. While those reporting requirement will inevitably impose some costs on organisations, the resulting reports and associated data could prove highly valuable in improving the security of our digital ecosystem. This talk will discuss the possible use cases for incident reporting data and how telecommunication companies could benefit from these requirements. The discussion will also touch on the characteristics of reporting regimes for which companies should advocated to produce the greatest value for the least cost.
