The 2017 Hiscox Cyber Readiness report, found that ‘small businesses appear more complacent than their larger counterparts’ when it comes to cyber security.
Cyber-attacks can come in a variety of forms whether that be phising emails, malware, ransomware or confidential data being stolen by an employee. However, there are steps that small and medium sized businesses can take to protect themselves against losing crucial data and incurring the costs which can arise as a result of a security breach.
Spending on technology is not necessarily the answer to preventing security breaches. Integrating awareness of security practices into company culture can have a much bigger impact.
Mersyeside Police, in conjunction with the charity Get Safe Online, is hosting a free business breakfast focusing on keeping your business safe online.
There will be presentations from the experts on how to protect your business and staff against the latest online threats, mandate fraud, CEO fraud, Cyber Essentials, ISO 27001 and General Data Protection Protection ( GDPR) Legislation.
Merseyside Police, TITAN – NW Regional Organised Crime Unit, Get Safe Online, Lloyds Bank and Kaspersky will give presentations.
The event will take place on Friday 22nd September from 09:00am – 12:00noon at Partnership for Learning Charity training and conference centre, South Road, Speke, L24 9PZ
