Bird & Bird's 'Managing Cyber Security Risk' seminar


Date: 10 November 2015
Time: 15.30 - 19.00     Venue: Bird & Bird, 15 Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1JP


While there is nothing new in organisations taking steps to protect their information systems against unauthorised access or damage, recent years have seen an exponential growth in the frequency and sophistication of cyber- related attacks. The ever increasing volumes of sensitive data held by businesses are at ever increasing risk of compromise. And, as is evident from a number of recent high profile cyber incidents, the reputational and business consequences of a security breach can be severe. Cyber security is now an issue for every boardroom and organisations ignore it at their peril.

Please join us for this seminar which will explore the legal and practical aspects of protecting your organisation against cyber risk and managing and mitigating the consequences if the worse should happen.

We are delighted to be joined by Mark Roberts of Atos, who will introduce the session with an analysis of the nature and extent of the current cyber threat facing businesses.
