That hint of regret happens to all of us. You’re laying in bed at night, playing the day over in your head. Then, you remember: The barista passed over your drink this morning and said, “Enjoy your latte!” Before you realize she’s making lattes all day, not drinking them, you fire off a  “You too!”


That’s just a little regret. I’m sure we can all think of much bigger gaffes that kept us up at night before. Here’s a new one: Missing the Cyber Resilience Summit coming up on March 6. Ooosh! I shudder to think about the type of regret you’ll feel about that one. But I’d imagine it goes something like this:

1. My boss is asking what I’m doing to make our business more resilient against cyberattacks. This would’ve been the perfect opportunity to understand what other teams are doing.

You’ve read the headlines. You know how common—and how devastating—cyberattacks can be. It’s a pretty safe guess you want your finger on the pulse of anything with the power to upend your business.

At the Cyber Resilience Summit, you would have heard about the latest tactics attackers are using to extort organizations like yours and what you can do about it. You would have learned how to develop a holistic cyber resilience strategy and use both AI and automation to strengthen your organization’s cyber resiliency. But I guess you could spend a few hours digging around the internet for that information.

2. Ugh. We’re a Microsoft 365 shop, and they had a session specifically on protecting Microsoft 365 and another one on Microsoft’s resiliency worldview. That would’ve been nice to see.

Microsoft 365 is the productivity backbone for countless organizations. So, of course it’s a prime target for cybercriminals. Imagine how devastating it would be to lose your M365 data. You can't afford for that to happen.

At the Cyber Resilience Summit, you would have learned how Microsoft and Rubrik’s partnership is specifically designed to boost your M365 security and how to use specific AI tools to make incident response simpler. Hopefully, you can catch up on all this information before disaster strikes.

3. Maaaaaan, it would’ve been really cool to hear Amy Webb, the futurist, talk about cyber resilience in the near future.

Even if you haven’t seen one of her many talks on YouTube, read any of her acclaimed books, or flipped through the Future Today Institute’s annual Tech Trends report, you’ve likely caught one of Amy Webb’s articles in The New York Times, Wired, or Harvard Business review and thought, “Huh, Interesting …”

It would have been great to hear how all her work has informed her view on cyber resilience. But I guess you’ll never know what the future holds now!

4. Now, I’m going to have to work twice as hard to get up to date on how to use the latest cyber resilience tools.

Learning an entirely new tool (or how to use an existing tool in a new way) is such a daunting task. You don’t even know what this thing can do, let alone how to navigate a completely new user interface. And let’s be real, you’re not going to set aside the time to dive in on your own—even though you keep promising yourself that you will this time.

It would’ve been nice to do all that learning at once when there was someone on hand ready to answer questions. That’s OK, though, you’ll probably find the time tomorrow to get back up to speed. Well, not tomorrow, but definitely the next day. Or maybe in Q5.

5. That meeting I went to instead ended up being totally pointless. I could’ve used that time better.

When you think about it, there are few things more important than ensuring the future of your business. Cyberattacks are more ubiquitous than you think. Cybersecurity Ventures estimates that by 2031 a business, consumer, or device will be hit by ransomware every 2 seconds. There’s deep financial motivation behind these attacks, and cybercriminals will stop at nothing to be paid. In fact, the average cost of a data breach caused by a ransomware attack was $5.13 million in 2022/2023. These are hard numbers to swallow.

It would have been great to tune into the Cyber Resilience Summit and help my organization develop a cyber resilience strategy, so we could be better prepared.

Yikes, that felt rough. We really don’t want you to have any of these regrets. So, yes, you could spend your valuable time piecing together all the great information covered at Cyber Resilience Summit. But we think we can lighten the lift for you and you’d feel better if you just knocked it all out in one fell swoop on March 6, 2024.

We for sure know that attending Cyber Resilience Summit will be a decision you won’t regret. Register here now.
