Practical advice you can use

All too frequently cybersecurity, hacking, data breaches and online criminal activity have become common place. Using scaremongering tactics, many cybersecurity businesses have induced decision paralysis at the board and management levels, putting their businesses at increased risk of significant financial, reputational and legislative damage. This seminar will provide a different approach to improving the cybersecurity ecosystem within businesses. It will give practical advice suited to the businesses' current cybersecurity maturity level that can have immediate positive effects on your organisation's cybersecurity risk posture.

This seminar will cover the ten actions that our seminar leaders have derived by working first-hand with the highest risks across all of their clients. For example, what standards should your business follow: NIST, ASD/ACSC, ISO27001? You will leave the seminar with enough practical knowledge to have a constructive conversation with your IT department or service provider to make rapid improvements to your cybersecurity ecosystem and to reduce your risk exposure.
