Why should cyber security be top of everyone’s agenda?
Any cyber security specialist will tell you that keeping an organisation secure requires a holistic approach - everybody has a part to play.
Since the disruptions caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), people across the country have had to rapidly adapt to a new and unknown work landscape. Attacks are on the rise; hackers have jumped at the opportunity to strike, as thousands work at home on unsecure networks.
So this year, we expanded the programme to include sessions for all staff members - from network and security specialists, to teaching and learning practitioners.
We encouraged staff from all teams to attend this free event as we will cover the key areas where vulnerabilities lie across an organisation.
If you are a teaching and learning practitioner...
Attending this event will have given you the practical advice needed to safeguard yourself and your students and gain a greater understanding of cyber security threats.
You have as much responsibility as your security team in keeping your organisation safe - after the conference, we hope you have a better understanding of how to do this.
Highlights included: Jonathan Wilson from Milton Keynes College, who will be speaking about implementing ISO 27001 and the importance of an integrated approach to security that includes all members of staff.
If you’re a network and security specialist...
This event aimed to guide you through how your organisation can mitigate risk and implement legally recognised cyber security standards such as ISO 27001, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.
This will help prepare you to take necessary action to reach compliance and show that your organisation has cyber security and safeguarding firmly at the top of your agenda.
Sessions were designed to help you make the most of your security applications, including information security and tools (open source and commercial), the security conference will enable you to develop your skills and improve your organisation’s security posture.
Sessions were mapped to the NCSC's ten steps
The best way to ensure your organisation’s security is to follow the National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) ten steps to cyber security.
To help you do this we mapped our programme to the ten steps.
