Scotland increasingly relies on networked technologies for our critical infrastructure and public service which offers transformational opportunities and benefits but also risk.
The cyber threat is ever-evolving. With new data protection laws coming into force, where public bodies could face fines from May 2018 of up to €20 million for data breaches and/or cyber security failures leading to service failure – it is imperative our public services are as secure as possible.
A new Scottish Government Public Sector Action Plan sets out key actions and deadlines for public bodies towards becoming cyber resilience exemplars by the end of 2018. The stakes have never higher, so how can public bodies be best prepared in the digital age?
This free-to-attend session will provide an up-to-date brief on the latest policy priorities, cyber threats, risk and legal liabilities facing public bodies.
