As auditors, we have seen countless business continuity plans, mainly IT bias and all having a seasonal flu pandemic; but rarely with any emphasis on a novel virus. Nevertheless, from our perspective, most businesses have performed well with their IT but the scope and scale of remote working has created a new narrative on 'information security' risk. In this context we should be thinking about information security risk differently; especially as the exit strategy from the 'EU project' materialises, impacting our interpretation of the UK's data protection act Vs. the EU's general data protection regulation.

We can accommodate several target audiences from C level/functional leads to the wider staff.
