Cybersecurity: managing threats and risks

Wednesday 27 October from 1.00 to 2.00pm

Cyber-crime is big business and attacks are 24/7/365, with vulnerabilities in cloud-based or internet facing systems at risk of being easily exploited. Ransomware events are of particular concern as these attacks simultaneously work to maximise impact through disruption and present a significant ‘pay day’ for cyber criminals. Shane Bell, a cybersecurity and digital forensic specialist, will provide an overview of the cyber threat and regulatory landscape, followed by detailed discussion on how organisations can set themselves up for cyber resilience and data security. How best do organisations ensure their business can continue?
