Event description

Description

Cyber security risk and data is increasingly at the heart of every business and organisation, whether it concerns customers, employees, shareholders or regulators.

Cyber fraud is growing significantly year on year, with the cost to organisations now running into billions of pounds, and the risks faced by companies and directors personally rising correspondingly. Shareholders, customers, regulators and insurers are being increasingly proactive in examining how companies and directors manage this risk on their behalf.

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation in 2018 will also have a major impact, and companies need to be preparing for it now.

Effective data protection and cyber security requires robust and pre-emptive strategies. This event will explore the dangers of cyber breaches, with real-life examples from industry and legal experts, and include useful steps to help you mitigate the risk.

Who should attend?

Managing Directors, Finance Directors, Compliance Directors, HR Directors and IT Directors, accountants, financial advisers and investors in companies and who are concerned with:

  • Financial risk management and avoiding fraud
  • Board duties and the risk of personal liability on directors
  • Data security
  • Regulatory issues.

Benefits of attendance

Attendees will hear from leading ethical hackers Pen Test Partners and 3B Security, who work with businesses internationally to test and protect their systems from attack. This will be followed by a panel discussion with experts from Taylor Vinters on fraud, director’s duties and personal liabilities and data.

Practical examples and steps will be covered focussing on cyber crime risks across all areas of an organisation, data issues and how to mitigate risk. Attendees are encouraged to take an active role in the panel discussion.
Networking – there will be ample opportunity for questions and informal discussions, to allow delegates to learn and share issues affecting their organization.
