Back to IT Security Basics: What’s Getting Lost in All the Buzz
Vendors regularly claim that there’s a new hot IT security problem that only their solution is able to solve. Many organisations make these investments only to see them fall far short of expectations or turn into a constant money drain.
We believe that this happens because the non-stop cybersecurity market hype causes organisations to neglect the most important thing — their unique situation and requirements. In this session, we’ll explain how getting back to IT security basics can help IT leaders achieve tight security on a reasonable budget, by finding solutions that actually work for their organisations.
During our session, we’ll answer the following questions:
- Are modern cybersecurity budgets spent efficiently?
- How does IT security market hype get to organisations, and how does it affect their spending?
- What are the security essentials that so many organisations forget about?
- How can these cybersecurity essentials help you save money and reduce risks?

New technology, Static Security
With cyber-crime rates still on the rise, the need for effective security systems has never been greater. This is particularly true within the business world; according to the UK government’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2017, 46pc of companies suffered a cyber breach in the past 12 months; and nearly three-quarters of UK businesses (74pc) now say that cyber security is a high priority for their senior management.
Modern life is saturated with data, and new technologies are continually emerging – but how can we ensure that security keeps apace with the ongoing change?
This session will explore the ongoing challenges, and seeks to identify the obstacles that are hindering the effective use of security systems alongside established and emerging technologies:
- Understanding the need for security as an implicit part of adopting new technologies and raising expectations for security across all ranges of technology and information.
- Developing stronger, more reliable, and more usable security tools;
- Overcoming the ignorance and misconceptions of the “user” to prevent breaches;
- Identifying examples of technologies that are advancing the agenda (e.g. biometrics on mobile devices).

Cyber & Data Security - An Insurance, Legal and Risk Management Perspective
As insurance and risk advisors to the Public Sector and Education Gallagher provide a session on the cyber and data insurance, legal and risk management issues facing organisations and what the potential solutions look like in practice.
In addition to an overview of the existing and emerging risks facing the sector we will explore real-life scenarios faced, particularly in a post-GDPR world.
In conjunction with DAC Beachcroft we will present a scenario and what the practical implications are and how an organisation would potentially respond utilising both internal and external support.
There will be a particular focus on how the Insurance solutions, now widely available, dovetail into an organisations broader cyber and data security policies and strategies.
