7 July – NHC Cyber Security – a governance issue
- July 7, 2021
- 1:30 pm to 2:40 pm
We’ve all become aware of the risks of cyber attack. But we’ve all got firewalls and passwords. It couldn’t happen to us…. or could it?
Actually it can, it does and it has. Local authorities, central governments, housing associations, health trusts and businesses have all fallen victim to sophisticated ransom attacks, maybe directed from North Korea, Russia, or indeed closer to home. In other cases, data breaches have been unforced errors – with huge quantities of personal data going to the wider world by simple mistake. The standard precautions that organisations take may not be enough to guard against the new generation of hackers, with their relentless probing of defences, and ever-evolving strategies to breach our systems.
This session is intended as an eye-opener for executives and board members, to help you become better aware of the risks and enable you to ask the right questions of IT managers and providers to gain the best possible assurance. Many policies and procedures may need to be changed or updated, especially in the light of greatly increased homeworking. Culture matters too – though changing that can be a slow business.
James Tickell and Jo Sedley-Burke from Campbell Tickell between them have a range of experience in this area. Join James, with his focus on governance and leadership, and Jo, who has extensive knowledge of where the weak spots may lie within an organisation’s systems, for an information-sharing and discussion session on the very real risk the sector faces from cyber attack.
