Pensions Law Webinar: Cyber Security and Pension Schemes

In this webinar, we will focus on how to mitigate the effects of the significant cyber crime threats facing the pensions industry today

17 February 2021

Cyber crime is a rapidly developing phenomenon, and is fast making its way to the top of the agenda in the pensions industry. As David Fairs of the Pension Regulator commented: it is no longer a case of 'if' a cyber attack occurs, but 'when'. For trustees and sponsoring employers, preparation will therefore be key.

The session will be delivered by Lucy Stone, Policy Lead at the Pensions Regulator, Jim Gee, National Head of Forensic Services at Crowe UK, Crispin Freeman, Senior Associate in Burges Salmon’s Pensions team and Marcus Clayden, Senior Associate in Burges Salmon’s Tech and Data team.

The following questions will be addressed during the session:

  1. Why is it important for trustees and sponsoring employers to take cyber security seriously?
  2. What steps should organisations be taking now to safe-guard themselves against the impact of a cyber security attack?
  3. What should organisations do in the event that a cyber security incident takes place? And what should they do in the aftermath?

This webinar will be relevant for industry professionals, trustees and employers.

Date: Wednesday 17 March

Time: 10am

Duration: 45 minutes
