Acquire the latest information on the Cyber Essentials Scheme
The primary objective of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy is to make the UK a safer place to conduct business online.
The Cyber Essentials Scheme has been developed by the UK Government to help businesses deal with the business-critical issue of cyber security.
The Cyber Essentials Requirements document presents important guidance on the most basic technical controls an organisation needs to have in place. Deploying these controls will assist every UK organisation in defending against the most common forms of cyber-attacks.
Attend this event and learn first-hand from the UK Government's Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) what you will need to do to qualify for Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certification and how this will help your organisation to improve IT security and in doing so, help to assure your supply chain.
Confirmed speakers at this event include:
- Richard Bach – Assistant Director, Cyber Security, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills
- Alan Calder – Chairman of IT Governance & world leading authority on cyber security
- David Clarke – Board member at Today Advisory Services, London, and founder of the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau
