The event started -1139 days ago

Event Description

A workshop in the Cyber Security, Protecting Business Online series designed to guide SMEs through the requirements and pitfalls of cyber security providing practical, cost-effective advice and solutions. Each workshop looks at a different aspect of cyber security from governance to tactical planning for an attack.

Isaac Asimov’s sentiment “I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.” is even more relevant today with our increasing dependence on our devices - PC’s, laptops, tablets and smartphones. This workshop explores simple effective protection to safeguard the devices individuals use to access data. Keeping them in a healthy state keeps your data secure and the devices running efficiently.

Topics include:

  • IT asset lifecycle - security requirements during each phase

  • Bring your own Device (BYOD)

  • Security requirements triggering an IT asset investment program

  • Incorporating security requirements into the planning and procurement.

  • Default configurations for the devices individuals you use to access data

  • Security measures to protect devices over their lifetime

  • Managing the device to protect your organisation data

  • Securely disposing of devices

During the workshop we will explore the trade-off between usability and security. There will be lots of opportunity to discuss these trade-offs as we consider the different security measures your organisation could implement to protect devices. We will highlight how the requirements of Cyber Essentials and the IASME standard will impact implementation decisions on security measures
