Information Governance and Cyber Security Awareness Month

The Information Governance (IG) and Cyber Security teams are welcoming you to join them throughout November for a month of presentations and discussions to raise organisation-wide awareness and highlight some of the risks and rewards that good or poor IG and Cyber practices can bring to you in your everyday working environment. There’s something for everyone as we will be covering a broad range of topics and would love to see you there and hope that you learn something.

How to get involved?

We’ll be attaching a timetable covering a broad range of topics we plan to cover in numerous lunchtime sessions throughout the month. Just pick out the sessions with topics you would like to learn more about and we’ll see you there.

Can’t make it?

Don’t worry, we’ll send the slides for each session out with the following weeks edition of the CCG newsletter.

Have a specific query?

Were happy to take questions during all of the listed sessions. We’ll also be holding an hour-long IG surgery at the end of the month. Please feel free to contact us at in the meantime.
