Be Forearmed: A Cyber Crime 101 for Startups
Wed 7 December 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
How will cybercrime impact your business?
With the advent of technology-enabled processes designed to make life easier, cybercrime has risen rapidly. Traditional crimes such as theft and fraud have now evolved into cyber-enabled crimes; crimes that use information communications technology to further the scope and scale of traditional crimes. Cybercrime is, thus, far-reaching. How can you guard your start-up from cyber crime? Find out as we explore answers to questions like:
What is cybercrime and how does it differ from ‘traditional’ criminal activity?
What is the actual cost of cybercrime globally? And should start-ups be concerned about cybercrime?
What practical steps can start-ups take to protect themselves?
We will also discuss real examples/case studies of cybercrime, the legal framework governing cybercrime activities and consider the future and reform of cybercrime law.
