Building Resilience into the Supply Chain

Police CPI’s Neil Sinclair will be hosting a seminar at next week’s Security IT Summit at the Hilton London, Canary Wharf.

The Security IT Summit has been designed to draw on the combined expertise of the cybersecurity community to facilitate the development of coherent strategies against emerging threats.

Offering invaluable insight to senior professionals, the Security IT Summit provides unparalleled industry access to the latest products and services to help best identify and combat a security breach.

Featuring a comprehensive seminar programme, the Summit will be welcoming prominent industry influencers to provide an update on policy and share best practice strategies on all angles of cybersecurity and risk mitigation.

Neil’s seminar will take place from 14:00 on Wednesday 29th June and will focus on Building Resilience into the Supply Chain. Large organisations have invested heavily in their cyber security over the past couple of years. However, many of them find themselves vulnerable to a cyber attack or breach through their supply chains. Neil’s session focuses on the importance of supply chain resilience while providing a summary of current threats the UK faces as seen by law enforcement. It will cover:

  • The nature and scale of the threat
  • What does good cyber resilience look like within your supply chain
  • The importance of collaboration
