West Midlands Cyber Security Conference

Are you cyber threat ready? Learn how to minimise your risk at our half day conference.

Cyber security continues to rise up the business agenda – but firms often struggle to turn awareness into practical action. Given that two thirds of large businesses and half of small businesses experienced a breach last year, the need to share best practice and discuss barriers to cyber resilience is clear.

This half day conference encompassing key note speeches, workshops and panel discussions will examine how you can move from awareness to action, with sessions focusing on:

  • What good cyber hygiene looks like?
  • Cyber Security - an organisation-wide responsibility
  • How do senior representatives run their boardroom meeting?
  • How to avoid human error?
