Cyber Security for your Supply Chain
Join us and a panel of special guests for our Cyber Security for your Supply Chain Conference.
In the last year, almost 50% of all UK firms have been hit by a cyber attack or breach, according to the Digital, Culture, Media & Sport 2021 Cyber Security Breaches Survey. The survey also found that only 12% of businesses review risks coming from immediate suppliers, while only one in twenty address risks coming from wider supply chains.
Good cyber security is wider than the technology and devices that we all use every day, it involves organising and educating the people, process and of course technology involved in the chain. With only 38% of medium businesses training staff on cyber security, it is no surprise that cyber criminals continue to successfully attack businesses.
Join The Cyber Resilience Centre for the West Midlands and a panel of special guests for our Cyber Security + Supply Chain Conference taking place on Thursday 29th July from 9:00 to 11:30am designed for businesses of all sizes across the West Midlands region. The conference will help businesses understand the risk that cyber crime poses on their business but in particular, their supply chain. Whether you have a small or large supply chain, cyber criminals will expose vulnerabilities if given a chance to do so.

Nick Bell, Detective Superintendent, National Policing Director for the Cyber Resilience Centres
Hinesh Mehta , Head of Cyber and Innovation for The Cyber Resilience Centre for the West Midlands
Junaid Arshad , Associate Professor, School of Computing and Digital Technology at Birmingham City University
