Managing the risk of cybercrime

Professional Development


The UK government’s National Security Strategy has highlighted cyber security attacks on the UK as a ‘Tier 1’ threat, which means they are one of the highest priorities for action. Threats can take many different forms, including unauthorised access to data as exemplified by the Panama Papers and other leaks and the potential for the systematic disruption of computer networks and services, putting cyber security threats on a par with those associated with terrorism.

This seminar will provide a non-technical awareness of cybersecurity threats and risk mitigation best practice, addressing the weakest link – people.
