‘FROM THE BASICS TO THE BOARDROOM’

Come and join your peers at the iconic new Birmingham Library for a critical knowledge sharing &
networking event around the murky, myth laden and ongoing threat that is IT & Cyber Security.
The challenges facing companies continue to grow in volume and complexity as Cyber Security threats
constantly evolve.
CIOs, CEOs, CFOs and Board Members will have to defend Cyber Security Policies in court if a
Cyber attack results in stolen data, financial losses or damages corporate image. Not to mention the
embarrassment caused.
• So why are companies still not doing the basics?
• Why is there still a disconnect between IT leaders and the Board?
• How do you educate and communicate with the Board around Cyber Security issues?
• How do you even start to address Security Policy when things are moving fast?
• How will the new General Data Protection Regulations affect your business?
• Where to begin with hiring Cyber Security skills in the Midlands market?
• What role do your employees play?
