Join us for our free webinar on 23 September.
Come to our webinar to hear how public bodies in Wales have been adapting their cyber resilience arrangements during lockdown.
Cyber security is one of the biggest risks to UK national security. And this risk has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, as hackers have exploited new opportunities for cybercrime.
New work from Audit Wales is looking at public bodies’ ‘cyber resilience’, a holistic approach to the hazards of the digital world, including the detection, prevention and recovery from cyber incidents.
We surveyed nearly 70 public bodies, including local councils, NHS bodies and national parks, to determine their risks and responses to cyber threats.
We will publish our final report in late 2020 but, before then, we will host a webinar on September 23 to preview our interim findings. Please click here for more details, including joining instructions.
Join us at the webinar to hear about public bodies’ cyber work during COVID-19, plus much more, including how bodies are ensuring their Boards are engaged in cyber resilience.
