Cyber Crime - Tales from the Crypto

The Embassy Room, British Hotel, North Quay, Douglas
Friday, 14 July 2017
    • Peter Cannell, Quinn Legal Advocates Ltd

Cyber-crime has been with us since the dawn of the internet age.

Now, however, with government agencies actively involved or alleged to be involved in cyber-attacks and with the arrival of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), businesses need to ensure that they have taken steps to prevent cyber-crime.

We are pleased to welcome Peter Cannell from local Advocates, Quinn Legal who will give us an insight into cyber-crime considerations and in relation to GDPR.

Peter proposes to cover the reasons a business needs to take cyber-crime seriously, while highlighting key steps that can be taken to attempt to prevent your business being a victim and what steps to take in the event your defences fail.

Not only are the enforcement powers significantly strengthened by the advent of GDPR but also, in this joined up world, cyber security has a significant part to play in compliance.
