What this Seminar will Cover
With ever evolving technologies, moving to new information systems and a move to remote and hybrid working, the cybersecurity threat landscape is growing and increasing and can create a highly negative impact on organisations.
A cyber attack is an intentional and malicious effort on a company or organisation to breach their information systems and obtain information for financial gain or sabotage. As well as the threat of these outside influences, unintentional human error can also play a part in a cybersecurity breach by downloading malware, clicking on an attachment or failing to use a strong password.
This half day seminar will outline how organisations can educate their employees to make them aware of these threats and will discuss basic protections and risk management processes to ensure organisations are ready to deal with fraud and security breaches when and if they occur.
It will also outline how public sector organisations can improve their security defences and what considerations should be taken into account if a breach occurs, including creating a Risk Management Lifecycle for damage limitation.
Who Should Attend
This programme will be of high interest to all public sector organisations and departments across the board who can benefit from guidelines on how to improve IT processes, security operations and risk following on from the largely publicised HSE ransomware attack.
Corporate Board Members, Chief Information Officers and anyone responsible for systems and processes should attend as well as lower-level officers who will benefit from knowing what risks are involved that can lead to a breach in security.
All of our open programmes can also be run on an in-house basis. For more information, see our page on In-House Training.
