Best practice in critical sectors – assessing the real risks and countering the harms
Cityforum is delighted to be working with NCSC on the development of this Cyber Security Round Table ‘Best practice in critical sectors – assessing the risks and countering the harms – lessons learnt’, which is an important event in the NCSC programme of wider engagement in 2017 and follows the NCSC/Cityforum October 2016 round table on the eve of the standing up of NCSC.
The event takes place on Tuesday 11 July 2017 from 0900 – 1730 and is being kindly hosted at the splendid offices of Clifford Chance, 10 Upper Bank Street, Canary Wharf, E14, which offers spectacular views across London.
Mr Ciaran Martin CEO NCSC, who carries the weight of the responsibility to protect the UK, is confirmed to give the opening keynote address alongside Ms Jeanette Manfra Deputy Undersecretary of Cybersecurity (acting) US Department of Homeland Security whom we are delighted to welcome to the UK. A line-up of impressive individuals representing a wide range of critical sectors is confirmed to contribute throughout a practical day designed to inform, share best practice, address challenges and help formulate fresh thinking.
The challenges facing the NCSC have grown ever more serious and comprehensive engagement and partnership with critical sector organisations, whether public or private, as well as regulatory bodies, remains vital to the safety of the UK. The opening session looks at “Harms, risks and liabilities’. A full understanding of the threat environment, of the potential risks and of where the greatest harms lie will be essential if cyber resilience is to be effective.
Cyber risk is now an unavoidable board room issue. How much one needs to know and what one needs to ask are two critical questions of concern. The discussions on the day including ‘Acting to mitigate harms, risks and liabilities’ will be particularly useful for board level executives, NEDs and members of Audit Committees from across the critical sectors, as well as CIOs and SIROs.. It includes an afternoon session specifically devoted to the question of “Who can influence boards?” and “Shaping and sharpening questions for NEDs, Audit Committees and Executive Directors”. The final session of the day led by Director Engagement NCSC focuses on “Effective Security – what concerted effort is required? How and by whom will it be delivered?”
The day is conducted strictly under the Chatham House Rule with no press present. Speeches will be short with extended panel discussion at the end of each session. Places are limited and early registration is advisable.
The agenda has been developed in consultation not only with NCSC but also with individuals who are invited to contribute. Cityforum would welcome discussing the agenda with any organisations and individuals who would be interested in being involved.
Who will be in the room?
