Tightening your Net: Cyber Security and Guernsey Business

Monday 20 April

Living and working on an island with our business and personal contacts increasingly likely to be spread across the globe means an ever-increasing reliance on technology for communication. The drive to go "paperless" means a similar reliance on technology to store our most valuable records. This seminar will explore some of the dangers associated with such reliance and how we may not only mitigate them but use our best practice as a USP badge-of-honour.

Our speakers will address both the legal obligations on Guernsey businesses and how practically one can minimise risk and protect our data and businesses from cyber threats. In modern business, laudible goals such as reaching clients in new jurisdictions, bringing online "fintech" workstreams into the business, creating accessibility for staff who need to work from home or whilst on business travel or providing instant data access to clients can open up firms to attack. It is imperative to the island as a whole that these risks are minimised whilst enabling our businessses to achieve these goals.

Paul Wilkes, Group Partner and head of Collas Crill's Commercial Team, will host a panel discussion and field audience questions to: 

Wayne Atkinson - is a Group Partner in Collas Crill Guernsey. Wayne is a financial services regulation specialist who has advised on a range of local and international regulatory and compliance matters both contentious and non-contentious. Wayne regularly advises boards of Guernsey financial institutions on their legal and regulatory obligations.  Wayne trained at Herbert Smith qualifying into the firms funds and regulatory team.  

Mike Loginov  - is the President and Founder of Ascot Barclay Cyber Security Group. He is an International Cyber Security Strategist and is a Certified Chief Information Security Officer (C|CISO). Mike has over 30 years' experience as a retained adviser and consultant to a number of large international organisations across the private and public sectors, including Vice Chairman for The National MBA in Cyber Security Global Advisory Board and former Chief Cyber Strategist for Hewlett Packard.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This seminar will be of interest to entrepreneurs, company directors, trust, fund and corporate service providers, and investors.

COST: £25

WHERE: Duke of Richmond, Somerset Suite, Guernsey

WHEN: Monday 20 April 2015. Registration from 4pm. Speakers commence at 4.30pm sharp. Close at 6pm. 

To make a booking, please complete the   registration form. If you have any queries please email  events@collascrill.com.

Registration

Mondaq Ltd requires you to register and provide information that personally identifies you, including what sort of information you are interested in, for three primary purposes:

  • To allow you to personalize the Mondaq websites you are visiting.
  • To enable features such as password reminder, newsletter alerts, email a colleague, and linking from Mondaq (and its affiliate sites) to your website.
  • To produce demographic feedback for our information providers who provide information free for your use.

Mondaq (and its affiliate sites) do not sell or provide your details to third parties other than information providers. The reason we provide our information providers with this information is so that they can measure the response their articles are receiving and provide you with information about their products and services.

If you do not wish to receive any future announcements of products and services offered by Mondaq by clicking here .

Information Collection and Use

We require site users to register with Mondaq (and its affiliate sites) to view the free information on the site. We also collect information from our users at several different points on the websites: this is so that we can customise the sites according to individual usage, provide 'session-aware' functionality, and ensure that content is acquired and developed appropriately. This gives us an overall picture of our user profiles, which in turn shows to our Editorial Contributors the type of person they are reaching by posting articles on Mondaq (and its affiliate sites) – meaning more free content for registered users.

We are only able to provide the material on the Mondaq (and its affiliate sites) site free to site visitors because we can pass on information about the pages that users are viewing and the personal information users provide to us (e.g. email addresses) to reputable contributing firms such as law firms who author those pages. We do not sell or rent information to anyone else other than the authors of those pages, who may change from time to time. Should you wish us not to disclose your details to any of these parties, please tick the box above or tick the box marked "Opt out of Registration Information Disclosure" on the Your Profile page. We and our author organisations may only contact you via email or other means if you allow us to do so. Users can opt out of contact when they register on the site, or send an email to unsubscribe@mondaq.com with “no disclosure” in the subject heading

Mondaq News Alerts

In order to receive Mondaq News Alerts, users have to complete a separate registration form. This is a personalised service where users choose regions and topics of interest and we send it only to those users who have requested it. Users can stop receiving these Alerts by going to the Mondaq News Alerts page and deselecting all interest areas. In the same way users can amend their personal preferences to add or remove subject areas.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file written to a user’s hard drive that contains an identifying user number. The cookies do not contain any personal information about users. We use the cookie so users do not have to log in every time they use the service and the cookie will automatically expire if you do not visit the Mondaq website (or its affiliate sites) for 12 months. We also use the cookie to personalise a user's experience of the site (for example to show information specific to a user's region). As the Mondaq sites are fully personalised and cookies are essential to its core technology the site will function unpredictably with browsers that do not support cookies - or where cookies are disabled (in these circumstances we advise you to attempt to locate the information you require elsewhere on the web). However if you are concerned about the presence of a Mondaq cookie on your machine you can also choose to expire the cookie immediately (remove it) by selecting the 'Log Off' menu option as the last thing you do when you use the site.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies and we are not aware of any at present that do so.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose any information requested.

Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the functionality of the site.

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address.

Correcting/Updating Personal Information

If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as postcode), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavour to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the “Your Profile” page or by sending an email to EditorialAdvisor@mondaq.com.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our Terms & Conditions or Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on our site so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email.
