PSE365: Tackling Human Error Panel Discussion

PSE365: Tackling Human Error Panel Discussion

With the public sector moving to a more hybrid working model, the increase in email communication and pressures of keeping public services running digitally post-pandemic, it has only highlighted the vulnerabilities of human error.

Phishing emails are still dominating the UK cyber threat landscape, increasing the pressure on public sector organisations to ensure public data is secure. In 2021, data emailed to the wrong recipient was the most common incident type reported to the ICO with health and education having the most incidents, making human error 75% of the total reported.

In this panel discussion, hear how organisations can address cyber risk due to human error and gain insight into lessons learned.   

Guest Panellists:

James Dunn, Public Sector Account Executive, Abnormal Security Corp
Professor Steven Furnell (FCIIS), Professor of Cyber Security, University of Nottingham
Shujun Li, Director, Institute of Cyber Security for Society
Tej Gudka, Head of Cyber Security, NHS Arden & GEM
