Cybercrime: a clear and present danger. ISO 27001, the means to mitigate the risk.

Cybersecurity guru, Alan Calder, to talk about the business benefits of cybersecurity at a Connected Cambridge event

To quote Deloitte: “Stealth techniques enable cyber criminals to act without fear of timely detection, let alone capture and successful prosecution. It is among some of the most insidious—and profitable—of crimes, and can be conducted from a well-equipped workstation, perhaps within your own organization.” 

Cyber-crime: a clear and present danger. Combating the fastest growing cyber security threat

Alan Calder, CEO of Ely-based cybersecurity and compliance experts IT Governance Ltd, is to address Cambridgeshire entrepreneurs on the subject of cybersecurity on July 25th at the CB2 in Norfolk Street, Cambridge. The event starts at 6 pm and will include food, drinks and business networking for delegates.

The event is being organised by Connected Cambridge, a small not-for-profit organisation bringing networking opportunities to the local community. Alan, who is an acknowledged international cybersecurity guru and a leading author on information security and IT governance issues, has been invited to speak on the cybersecurity topic from a business perspective.

Cybersecurity has become a critical business issue in the last few years and CEOs are increasingly looking at ISO27001, the international cybersecurity standard, to mitigate the risk of becoming the next victim of cybercrime. ISO27001-implementation has another meaning that goes beyond information security – namely, it can help a business to win new clients and contracts.

Alan Calder will speak about his personal experience of building a successful business helping companies to protect their confidential data and minimise the risk of data breaches. Alan will also explain how compliance to the ISO27001 standard could help Cambridge entrepreneurs to win government and international contracts and reap the benefits.

Interested attendees can register for the event on the Connected Cambridge website www.connectedcambridge.com.
