Cyber Security Event

Cyber Security Event, 12th April


FBCC warmly welcomes the Chamber’s friends and members to our Cyber Security Event on 12th April in conjunction with Womble Bond Dickinson.

In the new world of organised cybercrime, the question is not whether your systems will be breached – but when.
And as the government is now confirming the implementations of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from 25th May 2018, cyber security is a primary risk area for all executive boards. The event will feature talks by industry professionals regarding cyber security threats, GDPR and other current, cyber security related topics. Talks will be followed by a Q&A with a panel, and drinks and canapes will be served after.
