The Association of Corporate Service Providers, in partnership with the Jersey International Business Schools (JIBS), is to hold an inaugural cybercrime forum on December 6 at the Villa Marina.
The event has been arranged against the background of recent cyberattacks worldwide and is designed to alert financial services professionals to the risks of the ever-increasing threat of cybercrime and to serve as a road map for risk management frameworks.
Speakers confirmed so far are Detective Chief Superintendent Glenn Maleary, head of the economic crime directorate at the City of London police, who will outline how the force is combating cybercrime, and Colin Tansley, chief information officer at Douglas-based IT security specialists Simply Secure, who will speak on developing a cyber-aware workforce.
More speakers are expected to be announced in August.
The event will be at the Villa Marina from 9am to 5pm with registration at 8.30am.
The forum is priced at £275 per person, with ACSP members (staff of member firms and associate members) benefiting from a 20 per discount.
