Find out why the UK Government wants YOUR BUSINESS to review your cyber security.

IASME Consortium, the Government’s NCSC Cyber Essentials Partner, explain the escalating cost of cyber crime on business and why the UK Government has decided it is YOUR responsibility to do something about it.

With our partner Digital Surrey, we are very fortunate to welcome Dr Emma Philpott MBE, CEO of the IASME Consortium Ltd, who’ll share her thoughts on crucial questions businesses should be asking about their cyber security.

Find out why the UK Government wants your business to review your cyber securityBusinesses everywhere are looking to recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. With all the disruption caused, most business owners are focusing on replacing lost revenues and building up again. But cyber security attacks could take your company down before you have got going again.

Why you should attend:

1. Your IT department or provider can’t be expected to save your business from cyber security attacks. You can only do this via a change of culture.
2. Your clients want proof that you’re serious about cyber security.

4 in 10 UK businesses report suffering cyber breaches or attacks in the last year.

A survey of cyber security breaches carried out by Ipsos MORI recently for the Government found that:

• Among those UK businesses that have identified breaches or attacks, around a quarter experience them at least once a week.
• 1 in 5 ended up losing money, data or other assets. One third of businesses report being negatively impacted regardless, for example because they require new post-breach measures, have staff time diverted or suffer wider business disruption.

The same Government survey reported that in some cases, interviewees felt that management boards and end users did not fully appreciate the role of cyber security in facilitating long-term business continuity.

This webinar will focus on saving your:

  • Time
  • Money
  • And even your Reputation

Emma Philpott of IASME will give an overview of the Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme and also the IASME Governance certification scheme, which includes the data privacy controls. She will show why Cyber Essentials is important for Best Practice.

Join us for this live webinar and ask your own questions too. It’s open to everyone.
