Developing resilience in the digital world can seem an extremely complex art. The challenge of managing IT networks that have grown organically (and therefore are complicated, lacking overarching logic), risks and opportunities can seem overwhelming, yet understanding and focusing on the fundamentals is a proven route to resilience.

We were delighted to return to the South West, where BCS hosted us and an agenda filled with expert advice, case studies, demonstrations, and interactive discussions. We considered both old and new threats to our organisations, from our own employees to generative AI, and how this combination could lead to devastating consequences. Solutions were abound throughout the day. We discussed the importance of fostering a secure culture, how to empower your people with the right training, the use of gamification and scenario-based exercises, proactive detection and prevention measures for insider risk, and the benefits of collaborative cybersecurity.

As legislation attempts to keep up with our continually evolving industry, it’s important we also understand our legal obligations and responsibilities. We learned about legal intricacies, liability, legislative developments, and practical strategies for mitigating legal risks, as well as digital ones.
