Putting cyber security in place and developing strategies to manage security risks doesn’t have to break your business, but it can certainly help save it.

Recent circumstances have meant that many businesses have created a new way of working, which has consequently exposed risks, such as VPN vulnerabilities, to increased online scams and phishing emails.

Understanding what you can do to manage your organisation’s cyber security effectively can be the competitive advantage needed in today’s online, interactive world.

The PDSC, in partnership with BSI, have developed a three-part webinar series to explore what the most common risks are and what practical steps you need to take now.

Speakers will include David Mudd, Global Digital and Connected Product Certification Director, BSI; Simon Newman, Head of Cyber and Business Services, Police Crime Prevention Initiatives and Neil Sinclair, National Cyber Lead at the Police Digital Security Centre who was recognised in ‘The Progress 1000: London’s most influential people 2019’ for his work in Technology & Cyber Security.
