The workshop will provide an insight for SMEs into the risks and the potential consequences of cyber-attack, an overview of management processes and hardware/software that can be introduced in order to manage risk, resilience and disaster recovery.
The workshop will enable delegates to:-
- Understand and take away practical understanding and implementation of cyber policies to help identify vulnerabilities within their environment.
- Apply common sense to known industry leading issues and create their own pro-active security practices.
- Be able to understand the most relevant facets of cyber security from a top level approach.
