Cyber Security and Managing Risk

19 November 2021

What makes you a target, what can happen when cyber security is breached and what preventative measures can you take? Watch FooForce Managing Director Frances Russell deliver a timely presentation on cyber security in architecture.

This CPD webinar was held on 1 December 2021 and is now available for PURCHASE ON DEMAND.

During the pandemic, cyber crime has been on the rise, with many practices affected. In the continued hybrid work model of home and studio, and with the large data volumes and often sensitive information, architects need cyber security risk management in place.

In this formal CPD webinar, our expert presenter Frances Russell will cover:

  • Why there is a continued increase in cyber crime.
  • Why architects and our work are particularly vulnerable to cyber attack.
  • Key policies and standards for business owners and managers.
  • Your obligations to protect your client data.
  • The four planks of business policy and practice to manage cyber risk.
  • Directors’ liability for security of client data.
