What threat does modern Cyber-crime pose?

Last year, 54% of businesses received some form of Ransomware of which 20% were operationally affected it. From those attacked, 58% paid the cyber criminal’s ransom to regain access to data due to having insufficient processes in place to recover quickly enough.

There is a misconception that antivirus software protects businesses from ransomware, however hackers now use ‘multiple attack-vectors’ to compromise business IT systems rendering common anti-virus largely ineffective. Businesses must be made aware of the most common threats that are used to breach businesses on a daily basis and what risks can significantly affect GDPR compliance and how to mitigate them.

Vree is hosting this event to spread awareness and help SMEs counter this significant threat to business.

By attending the event you will gain insight into the cyber security threat landscape, learn how to protect your business from falling foul to hackers and to reduce risk of data breach.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation requires businesses to manage Personally Identifiable Information in a more structured manner, ensuring that data location is known, documented and the business has permission to remain data.

The GDPR comes into effect 25 May 2018 and any business can be fined up to €20million or 4% Annual Global Turnover (whichever is highest) if data is lost.

Data is most commonly lost through cyber security breach, human error or by rogue employees leaking information.
