Description

iNetwork Info Sec 2017

Building cyber secure and resilient organisations for a digital age

#infosec 2017

Background/ Context

In the 12 months, there have been an unprecedented number of high profile cyber attacks that hit the media – from Yahoo!, breach of Democratic National Committee and the breach of Bangladesh Bank and the hack of Lincolnshire and Goole NHS.

Information is a key organisational asset and its security is of paramount importance to reduce risk to business processes, reputational damage and loss in consumer confidence. Where this has been compromised, it has resulted in significant issues for the organisations concerned and are increasingly reported in the media.

This conference will help delegates better to respond cyber threats and defend against cyber-attacks.
