Focus Group: What's Stopping you From Becoming an Assembly Member?

We would like to invite you to a small focus group to discuss the barriers to stand as a candidate for the National Assembly for Wales. As well as people with experience at different levels of politics, we are keen to involve people who have considered undertaking a political role but have not done so yet, for whatever reason.

In the groups, we will discuss what type of barriers people face and what type of new incentives would encourage more people to put their names forward as election candidates. You will not be pressured to contribute your personal experiences. Rather, it is a way to discuss general barriers and to test public opinion on new incentives. Participants will receive £20 in appreciation of your time.

The research is conducted by the Wales Governance Centre (Cardiff University) and is funded by the independent Remuneration Board of the National Assembly for Wales.

MWL Systems FREE Event: Cybersecurity, GDPR and IT Efficiency

The main focus of this event will be on data & network security and the new GDPR regulations that become law on the 25th May next year. Britain’s businesses are being urged to better protect themselves from cyber criminals as a result of high profile government research into cyber security revealed that two thirds of UK businesses had been hit by a cyber breach or attack in the past year. The cost to businesses amounts to billions of pounds – as an example, the ‘Bogus boss’ scam alone has cost companies over £1.6billion worldwide Significantly, nearly seven out of ten attacks on all firms involve viruses, spyware or malware, which can be prevented using the correct technology. Both the internal and external threats facing any organisation’s IT environment are greater than ever, and companies are rapidly recognising that with the constant challenge of maintaining network security, adapting to new and ever more sophisticated threats and managing often unpredictable costs, they need guidance to help them along the way. Businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on IT and as the requirement to work anywhere, anytime grows, so does the risk of a cyberattack. That can pose a serious risk to organisations causing system failure, loss of critical data and financial loss. If you are an IT decision maker we will show you what you can do to combat these threats. Join us on the 26th September. Nestling in 27 acres of Cheshire woodland, Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel is a tranquil country house haven offering secluded luxury within beautiful surroundings Agenda as follows: 08.30 - 9.00: Arrival, Bacon Sarnies and Peer Networking, 09.00 - 09.30: Regional Cyber Crime Unit, 09.30 - 10.15: GDPR & Data Security, 10.15: Break, 10.30 - 11.15: Combating the threat of Cyberattacks with Sophos, 11.15 - 12.00: How to greatly improve your Document Management, 12.00: Quick Break, 12.05 - 13.00– Overview of Microsoft Office 365 Suite of products, 13.00 – Lunch, We will also be entering every attendee in to a draw to win an Apple Watch!
