Why Cyber Security is Not Just an IT Problem

Speaker: Helen Barge


Helen Barge MD at Risk Evolves Ltd and James Squire from West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit will explore the current threats facing all UK organisations, regardless of their size and sector. You will also be introduced to the great tool from the National Cyber Security Centre called ‘Exercise in a Box’ .

Helen and James will show you the nature of the external and internal threat to an organisation and begin to identify ways in which we can all prevent the organisations for which we work becoming headline news.

Members will also be split into teams for an interactive session and Helen and James will start a run through of an attack on a company.  You can then take the toolkit back to your own businesses.

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Explain the nature of the cyber threat to leadership teams
  • Describe how and why your organisation may be targeted
  • Identify trusted sources of information
  • Recommend steps that can be taken for little / no cost to protect the organisation
