The threat to business from Cybercrime has never been greater and we see headlines almost every week pertaining to a breach of a company’s network or website.  As Cisco Chairman John Chambers commented ‘There are two types of company, those who have been hacked and those who don’t know they have been hacked’.  It is not just prominent companies in the public eye which are targeted by hackers.  A survey commissioned by the UK Government earlier this year found that 90% of larger organisations and 74% of SMEs suffered a security breach in the last 12 months.  Given the threats to companies we need to engage with business at a senior level as well as on a technical level.  With this in mind we would like to invite you to either our technical briefing or our senior management briefing (or both).

One of IT’s greatest challenges is managing the ever increasing and persistent attacks threatening to breach legacy security systems. In this Technical Briefing we will be examining how the Cisco attack continuum can provide security solutions to mitigate these threats. Our technical focus will be on the recent Cisco acquisition of Lancope, Identity Services Engine and Firepower services. Each of these solutions provide an outstanding level of protection against current threats, however in this session we will examine how contextual information sharing can provide an even greater overall security platform.

The threat to business from cybercrime has never been greater and company executives have a fiduciary duty to ensure their organisation is protected.

At the afternoon event, we will be examining the threat landscape, and how businesses can work to protect themselves and their customers.  The event is non-technical and features speakers from high profile organisations who will share their experiences and expertise with you.
