Cybersecurity seminar

Cybersecurity is one of the biggest risks facing pension schemes in the new decade and most schemes are not adequately prepared. In our recent research with partners and members cybersecurity and scams in pensions were high on their agendas, particularly in light of increased risks during lockdowns. It is expected that the trend of high-profile cybersecurity incidents will continue for the rest of the year and we are looking forward to bringing you these special sessions outside of our normal event calendar to inform and support our members.
