Cyber Security is a Tier1 Security threat to the UK Government and industry is in the front line when it comes to attacks from inside and outside the firewalls. No company is immune to the threat presented by employees, ideological attacks, organised crime and nation states. IP theft and reputation damage are the two biggest threats that face industry of all sizes.
The lecture series will introduce you to a community of like minded individuals and help you to improve your company’s resilience and mitigate threats and ensure you are always aware of the latest threats. These events are made possible through the help of Scottish Enterprise, SICSA and Scottish Government and delivered in partnership with the SBRC (Scottish Business Resilience Centre).
We are pleased to announce a full year of speakers and a new format where before each main talk we will get a run down of the most recent threats and the steps that SMEs can take to defend themselves.
We will be running the Edinburgh lecture series in the Dome (New Register House opposite Waverley Station) on the last Thursday of every month.
The times will always be 0800 – 0900
