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.

What is the NIS Directive
The UK is implementing the EU directive on the security of Networks and Information Systems (known as the NIS Directive). Network and information systems and the essential services they support play a vital role in society, from ensuring the supply of electricity and water, to the provision of healthcare and passenger and freight transport. Their reliability and security are essential to everyday activities.
There is therefore a need to improve the security of network and information systems across the UK, with a particular focus on essential services which if disrupted, could potentially cause significant damage to the economy, society and individuals’ welfare.

What’s in it for You and Your Business?

The Insurance industry is taking a hard look at the NIS Directive in terms of where they see the risk balance between themselves and essential services organisations. Remediation activity to comply with NIS requirements will be considered favourably, whilst non-compliance may leave businesses without cover. Similarly, directors should consider the personal liability that falls upon them for any critical infrastructure disruption that occurs and the reputational damage that could ensue.Impact of NIS
The breach reporting and penalty mechanisms are the same as for GDPR, so that CNI organisations that experience Business Interruption will suffer fines of up to £17m.
