Cyber awareness for small businesses

It’s really important to recognise that, statistically, cybercrime and fraud now pose a greater risk than physical crime. All businesses, from sole-traders right up to multi-nationals, need to plan for when, not if, a cyber-attack occurs.  Businesses can be targeted randomly, but the good news is that with awareness training you can protect yourselves and your business.

This workshop will give you a NON-TECH overview on Cyber Awareness. Sam Hancock, an experienced Police Cyber Protect Officer, will cover areas that you need to be aware of and a number of measures you can take to help protect yourself and your businesses. The session will cover:

  • Device safety/protection
  • Passwords
  • Protecting your Data & Personal information
  • Risks of free or public Wi-Fi
  • Ransomware & Backups
  • Phishing
  • Sextortion
  • Current Trends affecting businesses
  • Intro to National Cyber Security Centre resources for SMEs
  • Benefits of CiSP and Cyber Essentials amongst other areas
