This one day masterclass facilitated by Simon Lacey will help you understand how you can overcome the complexity and sense of overwhelm that many experience when endeavouring to understand and effectively manage information risk within third party suppliers and their supply chain. Information breaches within supply chains undermine confidence in organisations, negatively impact delivery of services, create stress for service user, customers, and staff. Yet organisations are increasingly sharing sensitive information with suppliers, particularly as operational models change quickly, as the world changed over the last year and with an increasingly reliance on growing a remote and hybrid workforce. This masterclass offers a pragmatic approach to getting to grips with a problem seen as complex and overwhelming, as already stretched procurement and information governance professionals are expected to deliver more, with limited resource.
During this masterclass, we will:
- Understand the nature of the problem and its impact on your business.
- Workout how to identify where to target your resource for maximum impact.
- Consider what you may not have visibility of.
- Understand the concerns of your suppliers.
- Introduce clarity to a complex problem.
This masterclass will consider the National Cyber Security Centre (NSCS) guidance and other practical good practice.
