Duration – 1 hour

Northern Rail and cyber partner Modux are delighted to provide this 1 hour workshop as part of the Digitally Connected Vehicles event.  In this session delegates can expect a practical overview to help you understand what cyber risks are, identifying those risks in your business, and finally review some practical steps you can take to mitigate those risks.  Delivered with railway insight and brought to life with a range of case study examples, this workshop is ideal for organisations at the early stages of their cyber journey.

Maximum of 20 places available.
