Description

Join us for our next ‘Lunch & Learn’ session with cyber security specialist Mike Faulks.

Cyber Security for freelancers, startups, and SMEs

In this Lunch & Learn, we’ll hear from Mike Faulks, CEO of Ioetec Ltd, a Sheffield-based company that provides cyber security services to IoT businesses. Ioetec is a GCHQ cyber accelerator Alumni company, which means that their software and services have been scrutinised and validated by the UK’s own national security agency. Mike is also Associate Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in cyber security.

This session will introduce you to the basics of cyber security and how to put in place safeguards that will protect you from threats. Startups and SMEs should be aware of how they might unwittingly get caught in the crossfire of global cyber security concerns. You will hear about real case studies that show how expensive a breach can be and how important it is for businesses to understand what they can do as a matter of course to keep safe online.

This session will also give you an overview of current and future legislation in this area, so that you can best prepare your business. If you are a startup or SME that manufactures or provides connected devices or services (IoT, apps etc), this workshop will also help you to ensure that you can make your offer “secure by design” and ensure greater protection for your customers.

You will leave with a greater awareness as well as an action plan of some top tips to make yourself and your business safer online.

Please arrive from 12:15pm, ready to start at 12:30pm. The session will conclude at 1:30pm but feel free to stick around till 2pm!
