In digitising business processes and offerings, the business community faces challenges in preventing illegal access to sensitive information.

Cyber attacks against businesses are hardly new, but are becoming increasingly common, and potentially impose great costs when dealt with. The necessity to understand the extent of cyber risks has therefore never been greater for established businesses and start-ups alike.

What can we learn from others, and what do we need to do to ensure business continuity and cyber security? This forum brings together a mix of experts, regulators, businesses having faced problems and dealt with them, and start-ups with some of the solutions.
