Topics and speakers

Cyber security: what should trustees be doing to make their schemes resilient?

Speakers: Samantha Howell (Senior Associate, Pensions), Amy Khodabandehloo (Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution)

As the number of cyber-attacks continue to grow at an unprecedented rate across the UK and globally, the need for cyber resilience is stronger than ever. How should Trustees be responding?

Samantha and Amy have been at the forefront of advice to Trustees in this area and will consider:

  1. The legal obligations of trustees
  2. What are we seeing in practice?
  3. Key considerations if/when a cyber-incident does occur
  4. Practical tips and hints as to how best to develop cyber resilience.


Scheme amendments: how should trustees respond to the recent Virgin Media Ltd v NTL Pension Trustees II case?

Speaker: Helen Cracknell (Associate, Pensions)

This recent High Court case has called into question the consequences of not obtaining actuarial confirmation. What should Trustees do next?

Helen will cover:

  1. A summary of the Virgin Media Ltd v NTL Pension Trustees II case and its upcoming appeal;
  2. The questions that our clients are asking us in relation to the case;
  3. The advice that we have been providing on the case; and
  4. Key aspects to look out for when considering scheme amendments.
