In the wake of the Talk Talk, Sony and Equifax data breaches and ransomware attacks such as Wannacry, it has never been clearer that businesses across the world need to protect the information on which they depend to stay afloat and thrive.  The UK government has the stated aim of being the safest place to do business online and set out a strategy to make this a reality.  The National Cyber Security Centre, officially opened in July 2017, is key enabler of this strategy; as is community engagement.  This session is particularly relevant for businesses, from microbiz and SMEs to large corporates.

You will get the opportunity to engage with the NCSC directly and gain knowledge as follows:

  • Introduction to the NCSC (what they do and how they work)
  • Current threats to business in the UK
  • Latest advice to mitigate against these threats
  • Question and Answer session

Event Recording
Whenever possible events will be recorded and loaded onto the BCS website and the BCS Panopto channel for subsequent viewing by IRMA members and the general public, in order to meet the Institute’s Royal Charter commitments.
