As part of the Cyber Scotland week, we invite you to our Managing Cyber Challenges in the Professional Services Sector event. This event is aimed at information security professionals, IT professionals, data protection officers, in-house counsel and others involved in managing cyber risk within professional services organisations.

In this knowledge sharing event, we will discuss the specific challenges that professional services firms face when dealing with cyber risk and how they can manage those risks:

  • A representative from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) will set the scene by describing the threat landscape for professional services firms, including an analysis of the threats and what they are seeing by way of incidents and near misses and highlighting the importance of improving the cyber resilience of the sector.
  • Brian Taylor, Head of Information Governance and DPO at Hymans Robertson will discuss human layer security, addressing the challenges of protecting our people and equipping them to be the first line of defence.
  • Then Brodies I&T Director Damien Behan will delve deeper into the practicalities of managing cyber challenges in the sector, including supplier due diligence, certifications, audits and more.

We will end the seminar with a Q&A session, giving our attendees and speakers the chance to interact and explore the topic further.

This event is free. Please add to your basket and complete the checkout process to register.
