Event Description:

In partnership with:

This event is part of our Festival of Business campaign, throughout the month of June.

Cyber security poses a serious threat to businesses of all size and in every sector. In the last year, 39% of business reported a cyber security breach or attack, with over half experiencing an attack at least once a month.

Join Chamber Patron, Air IT and the IASME Consortium to hear about the practical steps your organisation can take to reduce its risk of attack by up to 80% by implementing the Government backed Cyber Essentials scheme. They’ll cover:

  • The threat landscape and most common types of attack
  • The perception and reality of an attack or breach
  • An introduction to the Cyber Essentials scheme
  • The five key controls to reduce risk from the most common types of attack
  • The path to becoming Cyber Essentials certified
  • Managing the evolving threat to keep your business protected
