Cyber Security Conference

Dealing with the cyber threat is a complex and constantly evolving challenge. Every business relies on the confidentiality, integrity and availability of its data. Protecting information, whether it is held electronically or by other means, should be at the heart of the organisation’s security planning. Public and private sector entities have to maintain a high level of preparedness and be able to identify potential threats and implement appropriate procedures and processes in order to protect and keep their information safe.

Some of the questions that should be taken into consideration are:

  • Who would want access to our information and why?
  • How would this information be acquired and what methods could be used?
  • How could they benefit from its use?
  • How damaging would the loss of data be?
  • What would be the effect of the attack and how would it affect the business?
  • What measures do we need to take to keep information and data safe and our business intact?

The forthcoming Conference aims to answer all  these questions. In addition, it will discuss the key changes in ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 standard and demonstrate how the industry benefits from implementing the standards. There will be updates about the latest trends and issues that Information and Cyber Security professionals face and what should be done to overcome these challenges.  

In particular, you will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of standards and how they support overall business continuity
  • Undertake steps for a successful implementation
  • Discuss security challenges associated with moving sensitive data and system to the Cloud
  • Learn about the complex processes and technologies around e-discovery
  • Hear from leading industry experts about cyber security threats and how to ensure your business remains protected
  • Get more information about potential risks that cyber security professionals need to be aware of
  • Actively participate in discussions with peers and get your questions answered by leading industry experts
