Cyber security is a fast moving and complex subject and is considered by many to be one of the key risks faced by financial service businesses today. Attend our panel event and hear our experts demystify cyber security and help you understand the risks faced by businesses and you in the workplace.

Our panel, see bios below, has been selected by design to consider all aspects of cyber security from legal, IT and data protection and it is set up to be an interesting and useful session. The topics we plan to cover include:

  • Main cyber risks for Guernsey businesses
  • How to manage cyber risk
  • The board’s role
  • The employees’ role
  • GFSC’s expectations
  • Compliance vs security
  • What to do when there is a cyber incident

The event is being held at Les Cotils on Tuesday 21 June 2022 commencing at 1230. If you wish to attend you can register here. Complimentary light refreshments will be on offer.
