Cyber Accountability for design owners and leaders
share

Phishing, Social Engineering, Ransomware, Clickbait – in today’s digital world, all businesses need to be prepared for when, not if, a cyber-attack occurs.*

Design and Creative businesses deal with confidential and highly commercially sensitive client information and assets; which confer responsibility for the safety and regulation of their data. Many businesses incorrectly assume that their IT team or third-party software provider is responsible for a potential breach. While in fact, creative business owners and leaders (such as agency owners, studio owners and senior managers) will be held accountable by regulators and insurers and are ultimately responsible for ensuring that the organisation can demonstrate cyber accountability. 

Create a cyber-secure environment for your team and clients.

This workshop will teach you how to:

  • protect your business and clients’ data,
  • anticipate security breaches,
  • prepare your organisation’s and staff response (from your business, employees’ and clients’ data protection, password encryption, secure payments and data storage to GDPR infringements, technology security regulation standards, and response to cyber-threat and security breaches).

Attendees will be provided with pdf copies of the workshop material, attendance certificates – which can be used to demonstrate adherence to regulations – and access to the 5 Pillars of Security Framework.

 

What is cyber accountability?

Cyber accountability is the ability to effectively prevent, detect, trace the source of a security incident or compromise, and quickly recover from a security breach. The Cyber Accountability principle is fundamental to regulations, standards, and frameworks such as the GDPR, PCI DSS, NIST, and ISO 27001.

This is particularly important in light of current and future security threats.

Why is it relevant to creative businesses?

Design and Creative businesses:

  • deal with a lot of confidential and highly commercially sensitive client information and assets,
  • hold important employee data,
  • can use third-party software to execute their operations,
  • usually work with the latest digital technologies,
  • often work with remote clients, contractors and employees.

Whether this data is handled by a small or large team, the business owner and team leader are ultimately responsible and accountable for the business data protection and cyber-security.

Most of our work today takes place and is stored online, with remote working increasing the risk of data security breaches and GDPR infringements, that could cost your business thousands of euros in fines.

*Cyber Crime increased by 111% in 2021, on 2020 RTE figures.

Who should attend this workshop?

  • Agency owners, Studio owners
  • Directors, Heads Of,
  • HR, Operations, IT and Finance Leads
  • Independent Specialists
  • Anyone holding responsibility for privacy, compliance, governance, oversight, strategy, security
