*Important: please note that this roundtable is specifically to gather feedback from directors/non-exec directors/senior leaders of organisations that the Code of Practice is designed to help. There is a second roundtable being held on the same day to gather feedback from the cyber security industry – you can register for that one here.

On Tuesday 6 February (12.00-13.30) techUK is delighted to be hosting DSIT for a roundtable with techUK members on government’s proposed Cyber Governance Code of Practice.

This will be a hybrid event, held at techUK’s London office and online, with a limited number of in-person spaces being available on a first-come-first-served basis, so be sure to book your place now.

Purpose of the roundtable

Corporate governance and cyber risk are becoming increasingly intertwined as the world becomes more digitised. In response to this, DSIT has published a call for views on a proposed Cyber Governance Code of Practice which seeks to inform directors, non-executive directors, and senior leaders about the actions they need to take to ensure their organisations are resilient to threats. 

This roundtable will provide techUK members who are directors/non-exec directors/senior leaders of organisations that the Code of Practice is designed to help* with an opportunity to provide DSIT with feedback on the proposed Code, and to help government understand if the cyber risks are presented and explained in a way that is straightforward and can be implemented.

You can read techUK’s summary of government’s call for views here. Please note that the call for views will close on 19 March.

Register to attend in person or online today.

*If you are a cyber security professional, please sign up to attend this roundtable instead, which is being held on the same day to gather feedback from the cyber industry.
