In association with
Making your organisation resilient is critical to meeting the security challenges in cyberspace. Resilience is the current buzzword in security, but what does it mean, and how can it be achieved?
In collaboration with BT and ISACA, this event explored the challenges that businesses in the Midlands (and beyond) face to make themselves more resilient to a cyber event. We explored the practical implications of an attack, what strategies can make your people more aware of the threats in cyberspace, and what support businesses can get to help you on the resilience path. There were contributions from the West Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre, West Midlands Police, and the new Department for Science, Innovation & Technology.
A recording for the day is now available. Apologies for the delay and some of the quality of the footage, we had some technical issues.
