30 March 2017: Cyber security survival workshop, London

Cyber image
Open Briefing is pleased to offer tenants of Development House in central London a subsidised cyber security survival workshop on 30 March 2017. Owned and managed by the Ethical Property Company, Development House is home to 30 aid agencies, human rights groups, peace organisations and other NGOs.

Such organisations risk infiltration by government, corporate or organised crime interests engaged in intelligence gathering or sabotage. Unauthorised access to confidential information can seriously damage an organisation’s reputation or put lives at risk. Cyber security should therefore be a vital part of any modern NGO’s security risk management.

Open Briefing’s cyber security survival workshop is tailor-made for NGOs, and is an ideal introduction for those with little or no technical knowledge. You will leave the workshop with an understanding of the capabilities, motivations and targets of various threat actors, the methodologies that they employ, and how best to mitigate against them and ensure your cyber security.

The cyber security survival workshop features lectures, a practical technical surgery and a final Q&A session to make sure that students get the most out of this essential course. There are only 14 places available in this workshop, so book now to avoid disappointment!
