Advent IM, the UKs leading holistic security consultancy, today announced a Cyber Security Awareness seminar, exclusively for Business Leaders and Senior Board Directors.

A breakfast seminar created exclusively for Business Leaders and Senior Board members seeking guidance on cyber security threat, was announced today by leading security consultancy, Advent IM and will be held at the company’s Training Centre, near the M5 at Birmingham, on December 7th 2016.

With many years’ experience in senior level consulting, training and mentoring, the seminar will be delivered by Advent IM Managing Director and Director of Cyber Strategy & Research for The Security Institute, Mike Gillespie. As a Director, Gillespie understands the place of senior leadership in cyber resilience and risk management. This seminar is to promote and enhance understanding of the organisational threats that boardrooms need to factor into resilience strategies. Seminar attendees will also have first access to places on the forthcoming training course, again exclusively for Senior Leaders and the C-Suite, which will start in March 2017.

Mike Gillespie said, “The cyber threat landscape is high on the agenda of all boardrooms. Many businesses have felt the impact of cyber-attack, either directly or through supply chain partners. No size of business is immune and no kind of service spared the attackers attention, with even hospitals being struck by ransomware. Recent research suggests that 82% of businesses say security is a CEO or board level concern and two thirds saying they are increasing cyber security spend. The additional spend is great, but without leadership and solid strategy, it may not achieve anything near its potential, and cyber risk may not be reduced. We have to make sure boardrooms are well briefed and understand how to go about effective cyber risk management.”
