Description

The UK's internet economy is one of the strongest in the world, international and domestic cyber criminals increasingly view UK-based businesses and private individuals as attractive targets for a range of cyber crime. In 2015 the Office of National Statistics estimated that there were 2.46 million cyber incidents and 2.11 million victims of cyber crime in the UK.

As business owners you need to do more to protect your own business from Cyber Threats and you need to protect the data you hold on your clients.

Protecting data is wider than cyber. We need to ensure that only those with permission to see it can, it is kept up to date and it is available when required. So we need to consider the physical protection of data and also ensure that data is managed and used correctly.

NatWest Bank would like to invite you to a Cyber Security Seminar and are delighted to be working with the industry to give you a full insight into protecting yourself from different types of cyber threats and the importance of your business being cyber secure.
