Understanding the threats of cyber security – Grant Thornton 2015 Breakfast Seminar Series

Last week our Grant Thornton 2015 Breakfast Seminar Series kicked off with a cyber security seminar presented by Matthew Parker, Senior Manager from Grant Thornton and Richard Le Tocq from Heritage Insurance at i2 Office.

With cyber security on the increase, Matthew and Richard taught our attendees how to understand and minimise the threats, develop a security strategy and prepare their organisation in case of a breach.

Matthew touched upon how security incidents by hackers is becoming relatively common today and that information theft is the second most common fraud affecting one in five companies over the last year. He also reminded us to check all our third party contractors.

Richard warned our attendees that it is not if, but when and questioned if we are prepared and how will we recover. He touched upon how smaller companies often do not have audited disaster or incident response causing a loss of revenue and damage to reputation.

We would like to thank our speakers Matthew and Richard and our sponsors Grant Thornton.

We are now looking forward to our next seminar on Thursday 26th February on social media.
