Join us for our latest networking breakfast at the Jurys Inn, Cheltenham. The breakfasts are attended by businesses of variety of sectors and sizes, from sole traders to larger firms, the breakfast offers an opportunity to promote your business and increase your network, with a buffet breakfast thrown in for good measure.
The morning gives you the chance to try out our popular ‘speed networking’ format, which involves changing tables twice and pitching your business for a minute at each, tripling the number of businesses you get to connect with. Attendees regularly tell us that they run out of business cards, which is always a good sign for a networking event.
The Business West cyber breakfast will have the opportunity to hear from Ian Maxted, the safer cyber co-ordinator with Gloucestershire Constabulary who says: "With an average of £250,000 worth of recorded financial loss per month from Gloucestershire, related specifically to cybercrime, this relentless digital onslaught has the very real potential to wipe out a business overnight".
The key speaker at the breakfast will be Professor Richard Benham, the World’s first Professor of Cyber Security Management and soon to head up the National Cyber Management Centre to be opened early next year in Cheltenham. At a time when British people are now 20 times more likely to be robbed via their computer than mugged in the street Cyber security is now one of the key concerns for companies with an enormous increase in cyber crime. Please come along to Business West special business networking breakfast on cyber security for companies to hear more.
