Full event details

Cybersecurity has become an increasingly hot topic over the last couple of years with multiple major hacking attacks hitting headlines. Although none of these stories have involved a high profile attack on a pension scheme - it doesn't mean they are immune.

Technology is increasingly at the core of many pension scheme processes leading to an inevitable rise in cyber threats and data protection issues. With the Pensions Regulator warning that trustee boards need to do more to assess their risk of a cyber-attack, this is an area where trustees should be acting quickly to ensure their members are safeguarded from cyber criminals. 

This seminar will help delegates understand what exactly cybercrime is, what key issues need to be considered, as well as provide practical steps to take to ensure members remain protected. Topics include:

  • What’s the relevance for pension schemes?
  • What do cyber risks look like?
  • How bad could the damage be?
  • Key trends – RSM research report

Elisabeth Storey, Senior Manager, RSM
