28.06.2022 – Understand your company cyber exposures & ability to meet them

June 28, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

How well do you (and should you) understand the cyber exposures faced by your company and its abilities to meet them?

This online event is co-hosted by NEDonBoard and McGill & Partners.

Given the increased risk of cyber threats, non-executive directors need to ensure their organisations understand cyber exposures, and have appropriate measures in place.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Results of cyber risk for directors survey
  • Summary of relevant legal duties
  • Practical guidance on what you need to know and how to find it out
  • Where does cyber insurance fit in?

This is a timely session in a fast evolving market, specific to the non-executive board community.

Please note, there is optional networking at the end of this session until 9.45
