Event description

Description

Cyber security continues to be the biggest threat to professional services firms and their clients. Lack of resources and co-operation amongst law enforcement agencies has allowed the risk from a cyber security attack to grow exponentially while those behind the attacks are often undetected and only very rarely caught. As your firm is targeted daily with everything from increasingly sophisticated phising emails to the internal risk from staff innocently or maliciously aiding and abetting fraudsters, it is no longer a matter of if your firm will be attacked, but when. This session will provide you with an understanding of the risks and simple measures you can take to defend yourself and your organisation.

Key points covered in this session include:

  • Cyber crime actors - fraudsters, hacktivists, insiders & Nation States

  • Types of cyber attack - Phising, DDOS, Malware, Ransomware

  • Case studies of cyber attacks in UK & overseas

  • What the regulators expect you to be doing to defend yourself

  • Best practice to defend you, your business and your clients

  • Accreditations - are they worth it?

  • National Cyber Security Centre
