Be prepared - building business resilience against cyberattacks

Virtual workshop

In 2021, a cyberattack on your business is much more likely to be a case of ‘when’ and not ‘if’. Our new business resilience workshop will help to make sure your organisation and employees are prepared.

Cybercrime continues to adapt and grow, affecting companies and individuals across the UK. Essential public services are particularly vulnerable and social housing organisations are no exception.

It is estimated that cybercrime costs the UK £27 billion, causing damage to businesses' infrastructure, supply chains and reputations.

Organisations already hit by the cost of the Covid-19 pandemic have also faced, on average, an annual bill of £8,460 for lost data or assets following a cyber security breach (according to the Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021).

With 39% of businesses identifying cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months – it is essential to be prepared. Business resilience and cyber security should be a top priority, especially with an increasingly remote workforce.

For this new workshop, HQN is teaming up with the team from Commercial Initiatives, looking at the role of business continuity in underpinning your cyber resilience. It will help you with the process of preparing for, coping with and recovering from a cyberattack on your business.

The day will end with an interactive business continuity exercise drawing on recent cyber issues and experiences.

Sessions include:

  • Understanding the role of business continuity plans in countering a future cyber threat
  • Exploring the cyber risks posed by the new flexible working environment. What does good practice look like?
  • An interactive business continuity exercise focusing on a recent, real-life, cyberattack.

This session is aimed at all directors; members of your incident and business continuity teams and ICT business continuity leads.
