Join the discussion
The AoC Annual Conference and Exhibition combines keynote speakers, plenary and breakout sessions to inform, stimulate debate and provide the latest news from senior figures in government, education and wider business sectors.
The theme for 2017 is “Colleges Mean Business”
Breakout session - Tuesday 14 November
11:35 - Is your college adequately protecting your learners, staff and business assets from the evolving risks posed by cyber security?
Part of strand one.
- Frances Burton, security services group manager, Jisc
- Jenny Sheils, head of partner networks, Serious and Organised Crime, Home Office
Colleges have a duty of care to ensure that learners and staff are kept safe. Cyber security presents a real threat to unbalance the status-quo of business-as-usual, potentially causing major disruption with devastating consequences.
Hear how your college is already benefitting from the cyber security protection provided by Jisc through the power of the Janet network, plus the vital steps you need to take to ensure you are defending your own organisation from a range of vulnerabilities.
