How to be Secure, Compliant and Certified – Friday 8th November 2013

What's it About?

UK PLC is facing an unprecedented and largely unseen threat from ‘cyber’ crime…computer based crime targeting public and private computer systems with the intent of accessing personal and commercial data and financial information.

With ever greater openness, interconnection and dependency comes greater vulnerability. The UK government’s National Security Strategy categorised cyber attacks as a ‘Tier One’ threat to our national security, alongside international terrorism.

The threat is real and growing.

93% of large corporations and 87% of small businesses reported a cyber breach in the past year. On average over 33,000 malicious emails are blocked at the Gateway to the Government Secure Intranet (GSI) every month. These are likely to contain – or link to – sophisticated malware. A far greater number of malicious, but less sophisticated emails and spam are blocked each month.

With the cost for a severe cyber-security breach estimated between £450,000 to £850,000 for large businesses and £35,000 to £65,000 for smaller ones, we must all look at new ways to protect businesses and make the UK more resilient to cyber-attacks and crime.

Who's it For?

This seminar is aimed at key decision makers within businesses who are keen to know more about the threats of cybercrime, the potential impact to your business and the measures which can be taken to protect your assets.

We will be identifying what a risk looks like, when they occur and who they affect as well as how you should act in the event of a breach, the dos and don'ts, and how to know if you are a target.

We'll also be showcasing the tools which you can use to protect your business, through penetration testing, incident response, staff awareness training and consultancy to ensure the overall health of your systems.

It will focus heavily on how improved cyber security and the development of an information security management system (ISMS) which incorporates cyber defences can help a you to attain or maintain ISO 27001.

The event will share the benefits to your business from the peace of mind you could gain by building cyber security into your business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

We’re always looking for potential collaborations with likeminded businesses, to bring added value to our services, and yours too. If you think this might interest you, we’d love you to come along to this event to identify any possible synergies.
