Description:
In this talk Craig will lay out current trends on where the automotive industry is heading as they move more and more into the digital realm. We will cover software over-the-air update methodologies.

We will discuss ways you can safely have both: a secure environment and consumer ownership.

BCS Southampton January Meeting - How Much Should You Be Spending To Protect Your Reputation? @ Southampton Solent University - The Palmerston Lecture Theatre | England | United Kingdom

BCS Southampton January Meeting – How Much Should You Be Spending To Protect Your Reputation?

5:30pm for 6pm start.

Speaker:
John Mitchell, Managing Director, LHS Business Control

Details:
This is a joint event between BCS Hampshire Branch and BCS IRMA Group.

Although the value of a brand may be difficult to quantify there is no doubt that the reputational impact of a security breach, whether deliberate, or accidental goes further than the direct financial impact. Indeed, the indirect costs of a breach often far exceed the immediate loss.

In fact, there may be no immediate loss to the entity, with the real losses occurring after the breach enters the public domain. These are often in the form of regulatory fines, a reduction in share price, loss of existing customers and the non-attraction of new ones.

These, coupled with the internal cost of sorting out the problem and the external costs of dealing with the media are often a considerable factorial to any direct loss. This session will discuss the true cost of a security breach and evaluate just how much your company should be spending on security in order to protect its reputation.

Speaker profile:
Dr Mitchell is managing director of LHS Business Control, a consultancy which he founded in 1988 to specialise in corporate governance and risk management. He is an international authority on corporate governance, the control of computer systems, the investigation of computer crime and the impact of regulatory and compliance issues on the delivery of IT services.

John has been an expert witness in a number of high profile UK criminal cases and he has featured in a major British computing publication as The IT Detective. He has previously been a member of BCS Council and Chair of its Information Risk Management and Assurance specialist group.

He is currently a member of the its Risk Audit and Finance Committee. His doctorate in risk analysis techniques was awarded by City University, London, England. His MBA in financial control was awarded, with distinction, by Middlesex University, England.

He was awarded in 2017, the special BCS John Ivison Medal for his outstanding work for the BCS and the computer industry.

Description

The RN is adopting novel technologies as early as possible. E.g. the integration of autonomous vehicles into the RN’s “Order of Battle”. The long term vision is for the RN to be able to address the future threats with significantly reduced manning.

The increasing capability and reducing costs of modern threats are causing the RN to accelerate the adoption of novel technologies as early as possible. One such technology is Autonomy – specifically the integration of autonomous air, surface and subsurface vehicles into the RN’s “Order of Battle”.

The long term vision is for the RN to be able to address the future threats with at minimum the current manpower requirements but ideally with significantly reduced manning.

The talk will present some of the challenges in planning out the adoption of a relatively immature technology such as autonomy as well as how we go about proving the operational, safety and security aspects of such new technologies in realistic environments.

Date: Wednesday 18 April 2018

Time: 18:30 – 20:30

Location: Basingstoke Country Hotel, Scures Hill, Nately Scures, nr Hook, Basingstoke, RG27 9JS

Topic: GDPR: How to establish a strong, defensible position

Event Running Order:

– 18:30 – 19:00 – Delegate Networking

– 19:00 – 20:00 – Chapter Presentation

– 20:00 – Close – Q&A, Chapter AOB and Delegate Networking

Description:
With the May deadline fast approaching the debate around GDPR has changed from one of understanding the new regulatory obligations towards creating a program that will first achieve and then maintain compliance. A defensible GDPR position requires proving to regulators that the material policies, controls and systems are in place and continually evaluated; a sustainable program should achieve this with the minimum disruption to business activities.

Explore how the adoption of a data-driven compliance approach can help support complex organisations with the assessment and implementation of the framework and provide vital ongoing operational assurance over the myriad in-scope processes and obligations. Ensure that exceptions are uncovered, prioritised according to their regulatory risk impact and appropriately mitigated in real-time.
