Did you know that UKGov stats show that Digital (Cyber) attacks on SME's have risen by over 60% based on last year's statistics alone? SME's are a key focus for criminal attacks which cost UK businesses millions of pounds every year.

Find out at this jointly run event by NatWest and Hashtag Marketing Ltd, a secure web application development company based in Wrexham. Jason Davies, Managing Director, has been responsible for creating over 100 secure web and mobile applications over the past 10 years. In addition to building a successful development company within the region, Jason is also the founder and head of the North Wales Cyber Security Cluster. The North Wales Cyber Security Cluster was created with the goal of promoting more communication within the region and facilitating the sharing of the latest cyber security techniques with SMEs across North Wales. Aside from his professional achievements, Jason is also a Sessional Lecturer at Glyndwr University and has advised Government, Education, Public and Private Sectors on Cyber Security along with delivering talks for organisations such as Digital2016, Info Security Europe, ACCA, Business Wales and many others.
Jason will be discussing the work that the North Wales Cyber Security Cluster is currently doing in the region. He will also be giving an overview of Cyber Security along with recommendations for what you should be doing to help secure your businesses moving forward. As part of these recommendations, Jason will be talking about the Cyber Essentials accreditation and the changes to Data Protection that SMEs should be aware of in the buildup to the introduction of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
