Why attend the Insurance Technology Forums (ITF) Security Matters event

Every year new technologies, vendors, and solutions emerge—yet despite this constant innovation, high-profile cyber breaches are all over the headlines.  In response, organisations have scrambled to develop a better security posture, but the dizzying array of options leaves resource-constrained business leaders wondering how to boost resilience against onslaughts that vary from sudden cloud outages to prolonged ransomware attacks.

Delivered by Lloyd’s market professionals, leading UK/global IT and enterprise resilience experts, these popular, fast paced 90-minute quarterly seminars, provide insight to some of the latest IT threat dangers and the proactive steps that market companies (irrespective of size) can make to improve strategies to help combat these evolving threat and attack challenges.

He will explain the CIE engagement and delivery process and what participants should expect both during the CIE and as part of an integrated cyber risk management programme.
