Today’s increase in cyber-attacks – and the resulting loss of valuable data and denial of services they cause – means organizations and individuals need to be better prepared to tackle this threat.
What we all need is greater cyber resilience.
AXELOS is partnering with Digital Leaders – a global digital transformation initiative – to co-host Cyber Resilience Week – a five-day collection of knowledge-sharing events designed to help people and their organizations build better cyber defences.
Among the 40 events happening from 11-15 September 2017, AXELOS is involved in a number of sessions based on improving the capability of people in managing cyber risk. These include:
