Security Matters

How To Boost Cyber Resilience Amid Increasing Threats

Lloyd's Library, Lloyd's Building, One Lime Street, London EC3M 7HA,

Thursday 18 April 2024

12:00PM - 14:00PM


Every year new technologies, vendors, and solutions emerge—yet despite this constant innovation, high-profile cyber breaches are all over the headlines.  In response, organisations have scrambled to develop a better security posture, but the dizzying array of options leaves resource-constrained business leaders wondering how to boost resilience against onslaughts that vary from sudden cloud outages to prolonged ransomware attacks.

Delivered by Lloyd's market professionals, leading UK/global IT and enterprise resilience experts, these popular, fast paced 90-minute quarterly seminars, provide insight to some of the latest IT threat dangers and the proactive steps that market companies (irrespective of size) can make to improve strategies to help combat these evolving threat and attack challenges.

There will be an opportunity to put questions to the presenters at the end of the forum.

Prize Draw for an Apple iPad, awarded post-event for the best topic/theme suggestion for a future ‘IT Matters’ forum.

This is a free to attend event but is limited to 100 places. To secure your place please register using the panel below.
