Our spring invitational offers attendees the chance to understand the latest regarding the 2018 UK cybersecurity landscape and to learn about current innovations in security protection through non-invasive cloud deployed security solutions. Plus, with GDPR entering legislation two days following this seminnar (25 May 2018), the presenters will offer their own latest post implementation thinking for organisations already meeting GDPR requirements and for those that may yet to have fully reached the day one requirements.

Registration is from 9am, speakers run between 09:30 to 12:30, with an optional networking buffet for attendees from 12.30.

Develop a deeper understanding of five essential mitigation strategies within the context of the National Cyber Security Centre’s “10 Steps to Cyber Security".

Resolve many of the security issues associated with shadow IT, gaining insight, visibility and control into direct departmental uses of IT and the associated data security management and control.

Ensure future data security solutions are meet the full requirements of the organisation and are vendor agnostic, infrastructure agnostic (cloud or on-premise) and end-device agnostic in the management and security of data.

The opportunity to speak to Nowcomm’s experts and to register for a free no obligation trial of some of Nowcomm’s non-disruptive cloud security services that will be presented and discussed during the morning sessions.

Utilise these takeaways immediately within your own organisation, for example to assist in comprehensive and continued GDPR compliance.

Data provided by UK Government’s 2017 Cyber Security Breaches Survey

Does any of the above sound like your organisation?

Rising IT usage has brought greater risk to UK organisations due to the increase in cybersecurity attacks and associated disruption, impact and implications such attacks and breaches can cause. Citizens, Organisations and Governments are demanding greater control over data regulation and enhanced cyber protection following high profile data loss and data misuse cases.

Nowcomm is partnering with Cisco to deliver this free IT Security event dedicated to addressing these concerns. Our event will be held at Cisco Manchester on 23rd May 2018 from 9am – 1.30pm, including an optional lunch and industry networking opportunity.
