UTC Swindon security briefing to advise businesses on cyber resilience

By Nick Batten on 5 July, 2019

A conference taking place this month at UTC Swindon will aim to highlight and advise businesses on cyber security and how they can protect themselves from being hacked.

According to the event organisers, companies of all sizes are being targeted by cyber-attacks, sometimes with devastating results. As a result, cyber resilience is increasingly important for any business – protecting IPR, customer data, and financial operations. The briefing will feature the insights and expertise of professionals who will provide advice and guidance on how to become cyber resilient.

The NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) and industry representatives of the BITC Business Emergency Resilience Group (BERG) will be accompanied by Royds Withy King and RSM on a panel to answer any questions on how best to secure digital assets. Additionally, a demonstration will be presented by students who are studying cyber security at UTC Swindon on how easy it can be, if not protected, to access personal data.

Michael Halliday, Head of Employer Engagement Strategy at UTC Swindon, said, “UTC Swindon is a member of the national UTC Cyber Group. We are dedicated to producing the cyber security skills that are increasingly in demand in responding to online threats. A team of students will demonstrate what could be happening to your information on Facebook and LinkedIn, and you will gain a whole new understanding of the digital world (which is scary!)”

He added, “The National Cyber Security Centre will provide a government briefing on how to protect your business. You will also meet some key players that are shaping the UK cyber resilience strategy – essential for any company that is doing business online!”

The conference takes place on 11thJuly 2019, 8:30 – 11 am. For more information and to book your place click here.
