Most organisations rely upon suppliers to deliver products, systems, and services. Recent incidents have demonstrated that a cyber security breach at your suppliers can be just as damaging to you as one that directly impacts your own organisation.

Our Enhance Your Supply Chain Cyber Security course provides you with the latest strategies and tools you need to protect and secure your organisation’s assets. Attend this course to identify current security trends, gain a better understanding of your supply chain and manage the risks to your organisation.

Utilise the knowledge you will gain to create a winning strategy, understand how to apply it within your organisation and stay a step ahead. Leave the day with a clear action plan to improve your supply chain security.
