Lockdown Cafe - Improving Cyber Security through Effective Business Continuity

September 11th, 2020 - 10am - 11:15am

After a fantastic response to our Lockdown Cafes during the last three months, we're delighted to announce their return!

In partnership with the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), we hosted a free, public event on the 11th of September, 2020. This virtual coffee session focussed on Improving Cyber Security through Business Continuity and features an action-packed agenda with some of Scotland's leading authorities on good practice in the cyber resilience space.
