DN41 8TH

Thu 23 November 2017

08:30 – 11:00 GMT

This event demonstrates how an organisations own staff can be an effective barrier to cyber-crime, ransomware attacks and data breaches.

  • Common cyber-attacks.

  • Data protection issues.

  • Case studies on business impact.

  • How to develop your human firewall.

  • Advice and planning.

  • Useful and free resources available.

  • Changing Direction of IS Security & Compliance
