#CyberFest22 – Cyber Security for Finance Directors: The Cost to business

The CBI is the UK’s most influential business network, bringing together firms from every sector in the economy. CBI’s North East ‘Finance Directors Network’ convenes CFOs from some of the region’s largest and leading companies to shape and embrace policy and best practice. This joint event explores the cost of cyber-attacks to business, the regional expertise and services available to help, and the national policies CBI are pursuing with the government in this vital area.
