Tutorial: Leading Cyber Security Assurance

Information security continues to become more complex and specialised. The days of the lone defender able to heroically defend their organisation from all malicious actors are long gone.

Multidisciplinary teams that bring together diverse and complementary talents to defend their organisations in an increasingly difficult threat environment are the best cyber defence.

Effective cyber security leaders need to be the ‘synthesising professional’ able to knit teams together.

This one-day workshop will allow participants to immerse themselves in tactics and strategies that they can use within their organisations whether they are new to the CISO/CSO role or wanting to take themselves to the next level.
