CyberSecurity is an issue for every single one of us, and if your name is listed as a Director at Companies House or if you are a Trustee or a Board Advisor then you have an unavoidable personal liability for a breach within your organisation.
Fines levied and prosecutions made as a result of a data breach or cybersecurity attack or error are legally done so under the principles of The General Data Protection Regulation and under GDPR it is a requirement that all staff receive CyberSecurity education.
There are plenty of training options for your workforce but a distinct lack of board training offerings.
ramsac have created two different workshops which both satisfy these compliance requirements. The training can be delivered to your entire board in a privately booked session or alternatively individual directors or trustees can book a space on one of the monthly courses.
Private bookings can either be delivered in person or remotely. The open board sessions are all delivered on a remote training platform and attendees of either session receive a certificate to prove compliancy.
This workshop on Cybersecurity has been designed to equip senior business leaders with vital skills and essential knowledge necessary in today’s fully connected business environment.
According to recent government statistics, around 65 per cent of organisations have been breached or hacked. In other words, data which is considered sensitive, protected, or confidential has been used, copied, transmitted, viewed, or stolen by an individual or organisation unauthorized to do so. However, unlike other crimes, you may not know that it has happened until weeks, even months, after the event. It is taking leaders a long time to realise this is a business issue and not a technology issue. There are very few businesses where a cyber-threat is not a major risk to its welfare. Warren Buffet famously said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to destroy it.” These days a company’s reputation can be destroyed within a couple of clicks.
Technology is evolving faster than we can generate individuals with the skills and experience we need. The agile nature of business, along with remote working technology, has left more companies open to the risk of cyber-attacks and it is vital that we understand the problem, know how to plan for it, talk about it and start to take action.

This is a shorter workshop which is practical and a highly valuable session that works brilliantly as a remote session and can be delivered in 90 minutes for those who want a shorter speaker session.
Vigilance starts in the boardroom and it is crucial that the C-suite take an active role in understanding the level of risk they are exposed to and establishing a meaningful and effective strategy.
The session is engaging, entertaining and thought provoking. At the end of it, delegates will have a checklist of at least ten things that they should be doing in their business, questions that they need to be asking of their IT advisers and a strategy for minimising risk of prosecution. Anyone who has already done the Human Firewall workshop will understand that CyberSecurity is not an IT problem!
This workshop is suitable for all directors and board advisors, it can be consumed as a stand-alone session or in addition to the Human Firewall workshop (which is a 3½ hour session either in person or remotely). Equally it does not matter in which order groups do the workshops.
