Cyber security and the growing FinTech sector will be the subject of BusinessCloud’s latest business breakfast.
Tackling cyber security is now a top priority of UK businesses. Most companies have already fallen victim to an attack and as the criminals become more sophisticated, that figure is only going to rise.
Although most breaches won’t be on the scale experienced by Mossask Fonseca – the law firm at the centre of the Panama Papers hack – the case served to highlight the clear and present danger posed by cyber attackers.
Given the rash of high profile attacks it’s staggering that the vast majority of breaches are caused by human error, highlighting that ignorance is acting as an open invite to the criminals.
And all this at a time when the burgeoning financial technology sector – known as FinTech, is going from strength-to-strength. The UK is a magnet for innovative companies that use technology to make financial services more efficient.
BusinessCloud’s FinTech and cyber security breakfast, to be held on Wednesday 2nd November at the UKFast Auditorium, Manchester will hear from some of the UK’s most innovative FinTech firms and discuss the omnipresent danger of cyber security.
