Cybersecurity and the government have always been intrinsically linked. Cybersecurity threats against local and central governments continue to test both resources and stamina. Now, more than ever, there is a need for vendors and government to come together to find the best way to tackle sophisticated and complex cybercrime.
Here at Assured, we are data protection specialists - every day we help our public sector and commercial customers recover data in the event of system failures, cyber and ransomware attacks, damages to software and hardware, as well as mitigating the impact of data breaches and assisting organisations with disaster recovery in real-time.
We’re delighted then that our CEO, Simon Chappell, is speaking at the virtual Think Cybersecurity for Government 2021 conference on 22nd June, to share his experiences in protecting public sector organisations. Simon will be speaking on a panel that includes: Paul Heath (Enterprise Security Executive - UK Public Sector at Microsoft) and Bill McCluggage, Non-Executive Director, Digital at FCDO Services
Panel synopsis: Are managed security services an answer for government?
The management of cybersecurity threats is a costly game. It requires specialist personnel and specialist tools. Is the use of a third-party service in the form of a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) the way forward for government? What are the impediments to the use of an MSSP? Can an MSSP bridge the skills gap in government?
Panel timing: 14:50 - 15:20, 22nd June
We hope you can join us virtually at the event as it promises to be one of the most focused cybersecurity-government conferences in the calendar.
