We are delighted to present our second event of the year around cybersecurity awareness with our hosts, BT. Our theme continues to centre on the importance of people when it comes to technology adoption. It seems technological innovation is happening at an extraordinary pace, making what we think we have only just adopted, obsolete. For all businesses, incorporating change at this pace is a daunting challenge, no less so when understanding and meeting the security implications. Managing that change includes preparing our people: sensitising them to new threats where AI and other new technologies will have a significant impact; encouraging diversity of thought and opinion to avoid the dreaded groupthink; training our teams to adopt new technology while minimising the unintended consequences. Our discussion will focus on the human element of innovation, the relevance of awareness and how to respect Murphy’s Law: anything that can go wrong probably will. It could be argued that continuous technological change makes investing in our people even more critical.
