Virtual Event: Cyber Security Risk Management

Form a collaborative network to better safeguard your organization

Tuesday, April 13, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Cyber-attacks have become increasingly more sophisticated in the way attack vectors are being put together, posing a greater risk to information security, critical infrastructure systems, and national safety. 

While risk management is nothing new, our approach should be constantly evolving – as the threats themselves are. A good risk management program should establish clear communications and situational awareness about risks. Ideally, risk management helps identify risks early and implements appropriate mitigations to prevent incidents or attenuate their impact. 

Achieving this in an ever-evolving environment though is a complex task, so to help you on your journey we’ve put together Public Sector Network’s Cyber Security Risk Management virtual event. The event will bring together cyber risk management experts from across the public sector to help you effectively identify and mitigate threats.
