Cybersecurity issues are becoming a day-to-day struggle for businesses. COVID-19 ramped up remote workforces, making inroads for increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks. Organisations, globally, are seeing a huge increase in hacked and breached data from sources that are increasingly common in the workplace.

It might, however, surprise you to know that 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error (Cybint).

In a recent report by Accenture, 68% of business leaders feel their cybersecurity risks are increasing – yet on average, only 5% of companies’ folders are properly protected. (Varonis).

If you didn’t think IT security needed to be on the IC agenda, think again.

In this TechShowcase event, we’ll be joined by Templar Executives, an award-winning, international Cyber Security advisory services and solutions company operating at the highest levels across the public and private sectors.

We’ll be exploring:

  • The real threat to organisations – trends we’re seeing
  • The role of IC
  • Practical support and learnings for you to apply within your business
