Cyber security has emerged as one of today’s biggest business risks.

This webinar will provide an overview of cyber security risk together with how frameworks such as Cyber Essentials and ISO 27001:2013 can help to optimise your security posture.

The talk will provide an insight into how some key security controls can be prioritised and implemented thereby creating the security culture that all organisations aspire to achieve.

As the security posture improves, cyber security risk decreases.
