Cyber-crime and security talk goes down well with Leeds CII
23rd August 2017
The Bureau's Talk, ‘Ignorance is no defence’, is doing the rounds with the most recent talk given to Leeds CII at Leeds Town hall last month. About 90 brokers and insurers came along to hear more about cyber-crime and the threats posed to organisations in all business sectors, including the insurance industry.

Judging from the post Talk feedback the delegates found it extremely interesting giving it a score of between 90 and 97%. Delegates said it was scary but packed full of useful insights, particularly the live hack into a typical office network. The accompanying information was considered valuable with many delegates asking for more details afterwards. One broker said, “the speakers expertise scared the life out me”

Further talks to other local CIIs are planned with the next one in October in Liverpool.

Originally aimed at solicitors the talk includes video commentary from the police, cyber-crime victims, lawyers, brokers, university lecturers and security experts and features a demo of a Hack into a typical office network. This is followed by a discussion on how office cyber-security and staff awareness can be improved through training and the adoption of the Government backed Cyber Essentials Accreditation scheme.

By making cyber-security a priority, all firms will become better able to guard their IT systems and staff, their business reputation, standing and future success, and less vulnerable to cyber-crime, fraud and extortion.
