Cybercrime now makes up 40% or more, of all recorded criminal incidents and an influx of complex and catastrophic cyber security attacks which means project managers should be concerned.
With the threat of cyber crime looming over us, it’s crucial that project managers educate themselves on cyber security principles. The security of your projects is more important than ever. But without solid knowledge of security, your projects could open your organisation to crippling threats.
It is easy to assume that the IT department bears sole responsibility for cyber safety on a company-wide scale. Unfortunately, IT specialists aren’t the only ones logging into systems and utilising networks. Every employee bears some level of responsibility for cyber security. Even if you’re not specifically involved in IT project management, your behavior or lack of knowledge could increase the risk for hacking if you’re not aware and informed.
Join Will and the Project Management Institute in Queensland to learn more about Cyber Security. This talk will cover modern hacking techniques and why they are such an effective threat factor against people and organisations.
Why this event is not to be missed:
1.Understand why your credentials are the number 1 target for cyber criminals.
2.Security is not someone else’s problem.
3.Project managers must establish a common risk management approach.
