Yesterday, 9 May, the Secon Cyber team attended GovSec at the Park Plaza Victoria in London. During this conference, Secon Cyber’s Head of Customer Success, Andrew Gogarty, gave a talk about the importance of security specialists for the public sector.
In the presentation, Gogarty outlined his top three guiding principles of a solid cyber security strategy: maintaining best practice, monitoring, and preparing for the worst. To illustrate these concepts, he described how Secon Cyber assisted in the detection and clean up of WannaCry from one NHS Trust.
Gogarty described how many organisations, especially those in the public sector, already have the tools they need to help prevent attacks, they just need guidance on how to optimise them to their full potential.
