Partnership update: CSSC East Midland – Business Resilience Seminar 4th November 2019
Security professionals gathered again to attend this year’s East Midlands CSSC seminar held at the headquarters of CSSC member, Capital One in Nottingham. The theme: Business Resilience.
Andrew Nicholls, Chairman of the East Midlands CSSC, hosted a number of guest speakers: Deputy Chief Constable Chris Haward, Commander of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit; Cyber Protect and Prevent Officer Kirsty Jackson; and Security Consultant Charles Swanson CSyP, alongside His Honour Jonathan Teare, High Sheriff of Nottingham, attending to present this year’s ISL award. The event was also supported by three Police Cadets from Nottinghamshire Police.
The objective of the seminar: to outline some of the most topical business security threats and provide advice on developing your business continuity planning, an update on the initiatives being undertaken by the EM CSSC and the opportunity to network with fellow security professionals.
The event was well attended with over 70 people gathering to listen to Deputy Chief Constable Chris Haward provide his support and backing to the work being undertaken by the EM CSSC. Kirsty Jackson was able to offer some valuable insight into the hidden cyber threats faced daily by businesses of all sizes and Charles Swanson concluded the presentations by talking about how we evaluate and measure risk.
