Cyber security is fast becoming a valuable tool for small businesses to win big opportunities, but only for those who know how to demonstrate their security maturity to outsiders. This 2 hour webinar will help participant businesses understand how typical cyber security procurement processes progress, what they need to have in place to pass, and how they can use security to improve their bottom line.
This workshop is suited to anyone with responsibility for implementing and/or managing cyber security risk and responding to cyber-related procurement/RFP questions from potential customers (please see note below). Businesses of any size and operating in any industry sector will gain value, particularly those in the early growth stage.
**Please note, the target audience of this fully funded event are SMEs who need to provide assurances of their cyber security compliance for procurement processes, to learn how to use their compliance to add value to their business offering, rather than businesses with cyber security as their main business activity.
Please note we may make contact to clarify this after you have registered to ensure the target SMEs have priority, regarding access to the event. Alternatively if you are unsure please make contact with Guy Primrose to discuss before registering, to avoid disappointment.
