Maintaining a secure network is reliant upon human engagement, increasingly amongst industries and individuals that have not previously faced a cyber threat.

· How cyber awareness can be developed on an individual basis
· Building an atmosphere of cyber security amongst departments
· Understanding how IT professionals can positively reinforce best practice
· Demonstrate how a cyber secure culture mitigates the risk from cyber attack
By attending this workshop, you will be able to;
· Effectively engage with departments on cyber security
· Create a cyber secure environment within your own organisation
· Introduce IT professionals into the operating environment, ensuring both maintained productivity and cyber security
