Directors’ Accountabilities in a Digital Era – IOD Workshop

In Blog, Business News, Events, Knowledge on

As technology and innovation continues to develop at a rapid pace, many Directors are finding it a challenge to effectively deliver regular Board education on all aspects of asset, data and people protection. Significantly many Directors are losing sleep with worry about liabilities and how to navigate their risk management and compliance duties. Net-Defence has partnered with the IOD and leading law firm Burness Paull to deliver workshops on how to navigate Directors’ Accountabilities in a digital era.

These Directors’ Accountabilities workshops have been designed to enable individual Board Directors to stay informed, reduce personal risk and enable them to deliver effectively on their Directors duties when is comes to digital impact on running a business.

The IOD (Institute of Directors) has been engaged with the government’s consultation on digital strategy for a future proofed economy for some time.

“There is no question that internet technology – and digital communication innovation more generally – will allow economies across the world to rapidly catch up with digital leaders, far quicker than would be the case with manufacturing.”

The next workshop which will run in Edinburgh is on 3rd April 2019.

This workshop will

  • Take individual Board Directors through clarity on changes at the ICO which result in greater accountabilities of individual Directors and new legal accountabilities
  • Educate and inform on myths and misunderstandings that are resulting in ICO fines
  • Equip Directors with knowledge to evaluate if IT and Marketing teams are fully informed and compliant
  • Enable Directors to better assess risk levels for you and your organisation in the future


The workshop is open to IOD members with preferred rates, and non IOD members.
