Cyber fraud is often considered a narrow technological threat, but what do leaders really need to know? The housing sector is not immune to cyber attacks, and it’s essential that Boards and Senior Management understand the scale of the issues they may need to deal with should a cyber attack take place.
This seminar will also look at examples of cyber fraud and how to ensure your organisation is as protected as possible.

David Blythe, Senior Manager – IT, Mazars LLP
Graeme Brand, Digital Eagle, Barclays
This informative session will give leaders an overview of the key technological threats within cyber fraud including: antivirus software, DDS attacks, phishing, man in the middle attacks and invoice fraud.
Graeme will focus not just on technology organisations can use to protect themselves, but also on the crucial element of how staff can expose organisations to potential harm and how to protect against this.
|14:10||Case Study: the Cryptowall virus
James Fairless, IT Manager, Northern Housing Consortium
CryptoWall is a type of Ransomware designed solely to extort money from individuals and businesses. The CryptoWall virus usually infects a system through a fake email or software download. The virus encrypts user files with a strong AES key and will only allow decryption after a ransom has been paid. James will explore a previous experience of the virus and discuss the lessons learned.
