Maggie Kneller

This talk is about 'Cyber Resilience' a crucially important discipline and skill in today’s world, which goes beyond the theory of IT security. Maggie will explain why cyber resilience is growing in importance for every organisation, and every member of staff, not just the IT department. Maggie will also explain the important role that IT needs to play.

The talk will introduce AXELOS's new qualification scheme RESILIA focused on best practice for managing cyber resilience, based on the collective knowledge and experience of industry specialist experts. Knowing that 100% prevention of security incidents is no longer possible, RESILIA also focuses on processes and techniques for quick detection and effective recovery, and is aligned with ITIL. RESILIA also recognises that people are the weakest link when it comes to IT security, and it provides sound approaches for reducing these threats.

Maggie Kneller is an experienced IT consultant with many years experience working in practitioner and management roles in large corporate organisations, most recently UK Head of Service Delivery at AXA. She is one of a very few qualified RESILIA practitioners (the qualification has only been available since November 2015) and is currently an assessor for RESILIA accredited training courses and trainers. An ITIL examiner since 1995, she wrote 'The Executive Guide to ITIL' and is also a past Chairman of itSMF UK and a past BCS Trustee. She has been a BCS Bristol Branch committee member since 2009.
