Patching people: What on Earth does Cyber Security Have to do with Information Management?


Cyber security is often seen by staff within an organisation as being an "IT problem". However insecure online practices and poor management of information can put the organisation at risk of attack. Ensuring staff know how to manage information securely is vital; the only part of a system that can't be patched is the fleshy part that sits on the end of the keyboard. 

The session will cover a number of recent case studies of major cyber attacks and provide a step by step guide to stealing information from an insecure organisation.
