Cyber Roadshow

About this course

Course type Essentials
Course code QASEMCSS
Duration 1 Day

Technologies such as AI, mobile, cloud and big data are more ubiquitous than ever and this has provided great opportunity for new business and it is becoming apparent that the need for effective cyber security comes as consequence. Cyber-attacks have been listed as one of the top four threats to UK National Security since 2010, and with the rapid pace for business opportunities, the ways in which companies, cities and entire nations can be attacked has also boomed.

Awareness on laws and regulations which are aimed at ensuring citizens, companies and governments can trust the data and information they share and receive has also increased. Cybersecurity is a cornerstone of the digital economy.

Join QA, industry leaders and cyber security experts at this event which will enable business leaders to understand not just the potential of digital technologies, but also the measures that need to be in place to effectively protect their organisation. Gain an insight into the new EU GDPR regulations whilst also considering the implications of Brexit on them and how it impacts you and your organisation. Finalising with a Threat hunting exercise designed to demonstrate where to look before, during and after an attack has taken place.
