Cyber Attack Simulation and IT Security Awareness Training , Tuesday 9th July 2019, NCVO, London, N1
For Charity and non-profit organisations.
How would you handle a cyber-attack?
Almost all successful cyber-attacks happen because, unwittingly, staff in the targeted group allow the attack into their network. Even with the best technology and strongest protection, it’s awareness that can be the weak link in preventing cyber-crime.
This half day event allows you to experience a ransomware attack similar to the recent NHS “wannacry” outbreak, but with none of the real-life damage.
The decisions you take as the cyber-attack unfolds will affect the final outcome – there are no right or wrong answers, but this is a chance to go through a simulated cyber-attack and learn which kind of approaches work best and how to prepare for such an event should it ever happen for real.
· Gain experience of what a Ransomware cyber-attack actually looks like.
· Learn about the initiatives available to help organisations protect their systems and train staff.
· Learn from cost effective examples of best practice on IT Security from organisations in the sector.
