Security Training

Latest reports show that over two thirds of business leaders in the FTSE 350 say they haven’t received any training to deal with a cyber incident, while only 6 percent describe their business as “completely prepared” to meet the requirements of GDPR.

This could mean a real headache for your company should your data be exposed to a cyberattack, which is why EveryCloud has curated a series of workshops to ensure that you and your team are prepared for any eventuality.

EveryCloud Security has teamed up with cyber security expert, Phil Cracknell FBCS, CISSP, MIRM to deliver a series of practical workshops and training sessions to help plan for and respond to a cyber security incident as well as a series of practical workshops on how to manage both internal and external cyber security risks.

In this series of 3 interactive one day workshops, we will show you how to plan and manage your response to a cyber security incident, explore all of the elements that should make up your response to an incident including developing your own response and action plan as well discussing real life practical examples and policies that can be implemented in your organisation.

These sessions can be tailored for your individual business needs, and are aimed at Technology and Risk Leaders, CIOs, CEOs and board members with a responsibility for data security and compliance with forthcoming GDPR regulations.

Due to popular demand we will also be holding a series of public workshops for each of the courses throughout January, February and March. Please email discover@everycloud.co.uk to find out more about course availability.

Cyber Breach Response Workshop – ECS-CBR01

In this full-day and highly interactive workshop you will explore all of the elements that should make up your response to a cyber breach – triage, mobilising the response team, investigating the cause, containing the damage and – most importantly – communicating internally and externally.
