Topic: Protecting Your Business Online

Come join us for a scrumptious lunch as you make some new business contacts whilst learning about the new Cyber threats that could potentially ruin your business.

We will teach you the steps you need to protect yourself and your business plus how to recover if you get hit.

As business owners, we rely on so much of being online in so many ways from marketing to using our cloud accounts to share with others and cyber security just isn’t getting any easier as protection technologies continue to advance at rapid pace so do cyber criminals trying to circumvent them.

IT teams are becoming stretched so you as the business owner can help protect your own business by learning what to look out for and not get conned into clicking on an impersonation email or brandjacking link in your inbox! We have will be providing you with plenty of time to mix and mingle with new people in the room plus meet our VIP sponsors and guest speakers.

You will leave with a new awareness at just how easy it is for cyber criminals to get into your phone, computer, cloud accounts, website, Facebook Page after a demonstration of a live hack. You will be fully briefed on all the different angles cyber- criminals are coming after you and your business. Even if you’re a sole trader or a non-believer that it can’t happen to me, we are convinced that during networking we will find many case studies to share in the room and how it affected them.

You will leave confident that you have the knowledge of what steps to take to protect yourself and why cyber insurance is only one part of the recovery process.

Take advantage of making some new contacts as well as meeting some of the most knowledgeable cyber security experts who have sponsored this event.
