About this event

Event Overview

Earlier this year, a survey by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) found around half of micro and small businesses (52%) reported falling victim to a cyber security breach or cyber attack in the past year. The average cost to these businesses was nearly £1,000 – rising to more than £3,000 for some.

A recent study found that 65% of organisations in the UK alone have either been breached or exposed to an attack. Meanwhile, only 42% said they were “well prepared” for moving to remote working, compared to 45% who were “somewhat prepared” and 13% who were not prepared at all – leaving more than half of all firms at least moderately under threat.

The NEBRC can help businesses prepare for attack, help with measures to ensure safe home working and provide a safe haven to ask questions, report crimes if necessary and provide a list of Trusted Companies to turn to in the event of needing remedial work or data recovery in the event of an attack. If a company needs some form of gap analysis as to where they are we also offer a wide range of much more affordable cyber services from our talented but supervised ethical hacking students

Who Should Attend?

Any sole trader, business owner who wishes to check their knowledge of cyber resilience against the national standard. Don’t assume outsourced IT companies offer security- they often offer solutions and networks but are not responsible for security- these are 2 different disciplines.
