Can you afford to ignore your cyber security?

Effective information security is crucial to all businesses today. Your data is invaluable. It is the lifeblood of your enterprise but there are those who would seek to exploit your data for their own ends: leaving victims out of pocket and with a loss of reputation and trust.

This event considers how we can better protect our businesses and ourselves from cybercrime.

The discussion will be led by experts Information Security Consultant Luke Hull and Detective Inspector Lloyd Tobin. Together we will consider some of the practical and legal responsibilities of cyber security and how to strengthen our security procedures. Space will be given to address specific concerns: Perhaps you would like to know more about the Cloud, mobile working or the insider threat? This is an ideal opportunity to learn more about cyber security and how to protect yourself and your business.
