Cybercrime and Cybersecurity

It’s no longer a question of if you will be affected, but when. This seminar features a testimonial from a NatWest customer who suffered the consequences of cybercrime, plus preventive advice from our local Police’s cybercrime expert Rebecca Tinsley.

Security education specialists Colworth Solutions and Layer 8 then discuss the “human firewall” – how businesses can turn their people into the strongest link in their security defences. Hackers now target people; even the most resilient software does not defend against human error. A proactive security culture is the single most effective, and affordable, defence against cybercrime for small and medium businesses.

What You’ll Learn At The Seminar

  • The latest cyber-threats, scams, and crimes – how to spot and avoid them
  • How data goes to “the dark side” – and how you can protect it
  • The consequences of cyber-crime – financial, reputational, psychological
  • Wider security issues – what’s in your wallet?
  • What employees need in order to discuss security proactively and openly
  • The next big thing for hackers – are you (or is your business) a special target?
