Cyber Security for Executives

Cyber Security for Executives Understanding the Risks and what needs to be done
This is for CEO’s, CCO’s, CFO’s, C-suite and Directors who need to fully understand the cyber threat landscape and how it may impact upon their organization.

The media,through their coverage of high-profile attacks, and attention from all levels of government has made cybersecurity a familiar term. However, many executives do not know the depth of its meaning or what to do about it. This has caused many managers to take notice, but made it hard for them to act. They are advised to assess their risk, but may do not know how. They are told to address vulnerabilities that are identified, but this consumes operating budgets and there is no immediate or tangible return.
Large, medium, and small commercial companies need help confronting cyber threats. They need step by step instructions, checklists, and other tools that will help them assess and reduce their vulnerabilities.

Venue Information - The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists

The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists is the 100th livery company of the City of London, combining centuries-old tradition with a modern focus, energy and innovation.

Like all livery companies, we look to give something back to the industry and community, and focus on four pillars of activity:
Charity – we raise money and provide IT skills to improve lives through a range of charitable vehicles;
Education – we built Hammersmith Academy (with the Mercers) and support other schools;
Industry and Commerce – we help to promote and shape the IT industry and run several schemes (including with the Royal Signals) to smooth the path of men and women into the industry; and
Fellowship – where, simply, we have a full programme of social activity. We are the only one of the “new” livery companies to have its own hall, and in 2017 we celebrate our silver jubilee, 25 years after our grant of livery.
