Back by popular demand.

There’s been a brief hiatus in the publication schedule of the ITC Cyber Bulletin. We didn’t think anyone would notice – but how wrong we were. Your screams and cries have been heard, and we’ll now be rolling out the Bulletin on a bi-monthly basis. Each issue will continue to provide you with the latest happenings in the world of cyber security, expert guidance from our friends at the NCSC and, of course, news of our regular must-attend upcoming events.
    And speaking of events; we’ll be hosting another Cyber Breakfast this month. If you haven’t attended one of these before, then now’s your chance – don’t miss out, we’re sure you’ll find it an enlightening experience. Full details can be accessed via the column opposite.
    For those of you in Jersey, we’ll soon be partnering with the island’s leading provider of enterprise services to host a Cyber Summit. This will feature our interactive breach masterclass which has been so well received at previous events. Get in touch to confirm your attendance.
    You’ll have no doubt seen the latest headlines screaming about the risk Huawei’s 5G technology poses for the UK’s national security. Well, it doesn’t all have to be all bad news, as our Director Cyber Advisory makes clear in our feature article.
    We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; cyber security is all about risk management. And to continue to hammer home the point, we’ve included some simple guidance provided by the NCSC to help organisations make decisions about the best ways to manage their cyber security risk.
    And if you haven’t already, take a look at our Threat Horizons below. This is where our expert security analysts put together detailed reports on how you can patch and remediate your estates against the latest vulnerabilities found in the wild web world!
