East Midlands CSSC business resilience seminar is a success

Security professionals gathered again to attend this year's East Midlands CSSC seminar, held at the headquarters of CSSC member Capital One in Nottingham, with the theme Business Resilience.

Andrew Nicholls, Chairman of the East Midlands CSSC, hosted a number of guest speakers; Deputy Chief Constable Chris Haward, Commander of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit; Cyber Protect and Prevent Officer Kirsty Jackson and Security Consultant Charles Swanson CSyP.

Other speakers included His Honour Jonathan Teare, High Sheriff of Nottingham, who presented this year's ISL award. The event was also supported by three Police Cadets from Nottinghamshire Police Force.

The objective of the seminar was to outline some of the most topical business security threats and provide advice on developing business continuity planning, as well as offering an update on the initiatives being undertaken by the East Midlands CSSC and the opportunity to network with fellow security professionals.

The event was well attended, with over 70 delegates gathering to listen to Dep Chief Constable Chris Haward provide his support and backing to the work being undertaken by the East Midlands CSSC; urging anyone who may be considering joining the CSSC to do so.

Kirsty Jackson was able to offer valuable insight into the hidden cyber threats faced daily by businesses of all sizes up and down the country and Charles Swanson concluded the presentations by talking about risk, how we evaluate and measure the risk within our businesses.

His Honour Jonathan Teare presented the annual ISL award, kindly sponsored this year by Insafe, to Natasha Beck of Poppleston Allen; with a special recognition award also being given to Sean Keown from the Department of Transport.
