Focus Group – Data Protection in a Cloudy World

Event Information

When: 14 January 2021, 4:30 pm

Where: Online Event

The global COVID pandemic has seen spikes in both Cloud adoption, and the attempted use of Malware and Ransomware to either extort businesses or extract data, as highlighted by a number of high profile incidents with the likes of Spectra, Capcom and Marriott.  The pandemic has seen a number of organisations make a move to the Cloud faster than expected, which leaves potential gaps when it comes to cyber-security and data protection.

The cost of downtime, clean-up and reputational damage in the current climate can be catastrophic.

Nephos Technologies and Arcserve have come together with The Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East (part of the NPCC) to host a focus group of IT leaders to discuss this changing threat landscape and the various elements that come together to overcome these challenges in a time where we’re experiencing increasing risk.

We will be joined by Police Cyber Security Advisor Det Insp Chris White and Justin Torgout, the Director of the South East Cyber Resilience Centre (SECRC) and is intended to be an open forum aimed at senior IT leaders responsible for mitigating these risks as we seek to better understand the pressures and demands with enterprise organisations in this field.  No sales pitches.

We have a limited number of spaces available, and these will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis so register now to avoid disappointment.
