From Risk to Resilience in Information & Cybersecurity

Date: 17 October 2017
Location: Radisson Blu Edwardian, Manchester
Time: 08.50 – 16.00

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to learn from our team of experts and industry leaders.




With the recent escalation in global cyber-attacks and forthcoming EU GDPR legislation, UK businesses in every industry are, more than ever, vulnerable to those with malicious intentions. Despite best efforts, breaches will occur and the economic costs incurred in terms of business disruption, remediation and reputation will be extensive. As these attacks become more common and the ICO prepares to enforce EU GDPR, organizations need to mitigate the initial impact, increase their resilience and recover from an attack to resume normal operations.

BSI's Information Resilience conference provides a unique opportunity to join your peers to ensure organizational resilience lies at the heart of your information and cybersecurity strategy.
