How Financial Services companies can use the Zero-Trust Model to strengthen their IT security.
Searcys at The Gherkin, 30 St Mary Axe, London EC3A 8EP

Date: Thursday 21st of February 2019

Venue: 37th Floor at The Gherkin, 30 St Mary Axe, EC3A 8EP

Time: 12:00 - 14:30 pm

Cyber Security is a serious concern for companies; particularly those who deal with highly sensitive information, such as Financial Services organisations.

Financial and reputational losses associated with data breaches are high and SMEs are often the most vulnerable to these risks. Smaller businesses might not expect to be targeted and aren't always prepared to effectively mitigate the risk of cyber-attack.

In this Lunch & Learn you will be introduced to the Zero Trust security model and other innovations happening within cyber security right now. 

You will hear about:

  • What Zero-Trust can actually mean for your business
  • Steps you can take to control device access within your organisation
  • How you can integrate new technologies into your IT strategy to future-proof your business
  • Tools you can use which enable you to see whether your business data has been compromised
