“I already do, my IT team takes care of it” is not good enough!

Try answering these questions:-

  • Do you have a business continuity plan that has been tested in the last 12 months?
  • Does your leadership team know what to do in a cyber event?
  • In the event of a cyber event, power failure, office fire, cyber hack or anything that affects your users from working as usual how long will your business be down for?
  • Are you sure your IT department has your back?

If you answered ‘No’ or ‘Don’t Know’ to any of the above you need to attend this event.


Please book your Cyber Security Awareness tickets through our Eventbrite page

The ticket cost includes all sessions, welcome coffee, refreshments, lunch and networking.


  • Richard McBarnet, Managing Director of Lumina Technologies and the Institute of Directors’ Cyber Security Ambassador for the East of England, will explain the vital role the board must play in ensuring the Cyber resilience of the business and give some practical starting points.
  • Callum Bryant of IT Governance. Want to see how hackers actually hack? Callum undertakes CREST certified penetration testing. Whilst we have heard from the security specialists on what’s happening, Callum will give insight to the methods used by the hackers looking at the machine elements and human elements and how social engineering is harnessed. This will give you great insight to help ensure the right protection measure are in place for your organisation.
  • Alexis Holmes of SonicWall. Cyber threat report – Unmasking the Threats That Target Global Enterprises, Governments & SMBs. Alexis will be reviewing the findings of the Sonicwall Cyber threat report which gives insight to the different types of attacks being seen. This will aid in making the right decision to protect your organisation against the most used attack vectors.
  • Michelle Mullins of StorageCraft. It’s not if it’s when – with that mindset you need to plan for failure to ensure your cyber resilience. Michelle will walk you through some of the measure you can put in place to protect your data when prevention measures against cyber threats fail.
  • NetDocuments Why the cloud? Will highlight how a cloud based solution will not only keep your business running in the event of a cyber event but also how it can increase your cyber security.

In addition to the sessions, there will be a chance to talk to the speakers and network with other businesses.

At Board level, it is vital to have an awareness of how Cybercrime could affect your business in order to make informed decisions to ensure your organisation is ‘Cyber Resilient’.

However, Cyber Security and Cybercrime is only part of the problem. Any kind of threat to your IT system can have adverse repercussions on the day-to-day running of your business – whether it is malicious, accidental, or something as seemingly innocuous as a simple power outage.


Experts in cyber security and IT provision will explain why a resilient and secure technical infrastructure is vital for the overall health of your business and therefore must be treated as a Board level issue, imperative for operational excellence.
