Lunch and Learn: Fail to plan, plan to fail! Mitigating cyber risk

Friday 6 October | 12:00 – 13:00 BST


Why Attend?

The Government’s 2022 Cyber Security Breaches Survey confirmed that 39% of UK businesses reported a cyber security attack during the previous 12 months. Maintaining an effective security strategy has never been more critical.

During this session we will explore some of those risks and how you can more effectively plan for cyber security.

Join us for an unmissable hour over lunchtime to hear from fantastic guest speakers including:

Simon Corbett – Chief Information Officer at Northumbria University
Martin Wilson – Head of Student Services at North East Business Resilience Centre
Danielle Phillips – Skills Lead and Director at CyberNorth
Andy Hunter – Chief Technology Officer at IT Professional Services
This panel discussion will cover topics such as the current cybersecurity landscape, real world examples and how to plan for the worst to give yourself the best chance of recovery.

There will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A so you can interact with and learn from this expert panel.

Chamber Lunch & Learn series

Recent changes in the workplace has been profound. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted beliefs, working practices and previously accepted norms. Some organisations have moved away from their core business and found strengths – and sales – in multiple and/or different sectors.

We understand that organisations are busy, but also eager to learn. We also understand that whilst companies grow and develop, taking time to develop policies, content or understand nuances of specific content can take time.

With that in mind, our ‘lunch and learn’ series is designed to cover a range of core business subjects and to provide guidance and support on core business topics such as HR, finance and legal.

The sessions will predominantly be delivered by SME members, for the benefit of our SME members. The presentations will be delivered by experts within the specific field.
