About the workshop
In this interconnected world the risk of an attack of our information resources must be a matter of real concern for all of us and can only grow as the dangers increase and attacks become ever more sophisticated. Good information security has always been an important aspect of an organisation’s effective functioning, credibility and resilience and, for modern organisations, it is vital as they face threats that evolve and change. This one-week workshop explores the nature of cybercrime, the key risks to organisations and the ways in which organisational capacity to resist cyber-attacks can be enhanced. It also demonstrates what should be done if an attack is suspected and what processes can be put in place to enable an organisation to get back up and functioning rapidly if the worst does happen and its defences are breached.
