POSTPONED: Shift the Risk – cyber incident management for Decision Makers

4th November 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Right now, all the financial and reputational risk of a data breach, cyber or ransomware attack sits firmly with you at board level. And no matter what your IT team is telling you, you probably don’t have all the necessary solutions in place to properly manage that risk.


Put this right at our next event at the GC Campus with Bamboo Technology Group and BPE Solicitors.


Cyber and ransomware attacks, together with credentials harvesting, are now so sophisticated and commonplace only the huge ones make the news. In the first half of 2021, cyberattacks increased globally by nearly 1/3rd and ransomware attacks surged 93% in the last 6 months alone.


The question is no longer ‘if’ you’ll face a breach, it’s ‘when’.


Get real-world peace of mind


In a revolutionary approach, the IT and legal protection you need has come together in one place.  Cheltenham law firm BPE (given the highest recognition in The Legal 500 for their specialist IT and tech advice) and digital assurance experts Bamboo have created an integrated solution that helps to blunt attacks and deflect the financial and reputational hit firmly away from you.


The aim – to help reduce the harm caused to your organisation and know what steps to take to deter future attacks.

The event will give ‘non-techies’ insights into the critical elements of cyber risk management.


At this event you’ll learn how to:

  • Transform the analysis of your existing IT resilience from the ‘tick-box’ approach it often is today
  • Build your attack defences
  • Satisfy regulators and insurers you have 100% compliant systems in place
  • Ensure you have watertight employee and supplier contracts
  • Turn a negative into a positive in the event of a breach.
