Responding to a cyber incident One of the course attendees, Wayne Parkes, Head of ICT - Warwickshire Police UK, had this to say: "Quite a difficult subject to get over sometimes but I think Amar presented it really well. Nice mixture of technical knowledge and practical examples. Good for a very mixed audience as it wasn’t overly technical. I highly recommend it in terms of bringing a mixed group up to speed with the importance of responding to a cyber incident, and what the essentials are, about dealing with it."
