    Cyber-attacks pose a major risk for all businesses, with the consequences of financial disruption, stolen IP and loss of customer trust. All organisations nowadays rely on digital innovation, making them vulnerable to cyber-attacks and data breaches.

    It is no longer a question of ‘if’ rather than ‘when’ you will be hit by a cyber attack, so it is vital that your organisation prepares accordingly. Westminster Insight’s Cyber Security Conference is aimed at private, public sector and VSCE businesses to help you minimise the risk and exposure to cyber crime, as you'll understand what support is available when you do experience an attack.

    To defend against the ever-evolving sophistication and variation of cyber-attacks, this conference will explore business-wide risk awareness and training, investment into effective tools, technology and infrastructure, the development of skills and robust security processes.

    You will also learn what to do when there has been a breach, including managing your response and reputation, the implications of regulation and enforcement and the benefits and limitations of insurance.

    The increased cyber risk environment is also an opportunity to assess how new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) are shaping the threat landscape, and ways to secure your organisation against future cyber threats.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to defend your organisation and achieve cyber resilience in a fast-moving digital world.
