#FSB Connect Cyber Security Seminar at Vantage Point
Wed 22 March 2017, 10:00 – 12:00
#FSB Connect Vantage Point networking meeting and cyber security seminar
The FSB in Gloucestershire has joined forces with Vantage Point Business Village in the Forest of Dean to launch a new mid-morning networking and business seminar event which kicks off in March.
The idea of the meeting is to bring together local business owners from throughout Gloucestershire for informal networking and the chance to hear about a key subject that can affect their day-to-day businesses. The first meeting will concentrate on the subject of cyber security and what SMEs can do to avoid being the victim of the biggest rising crime in business – hacking and cyber-attacks.
We will have three speakers on the morning each doing a short presentation and there will also be an opportunity to informally network before and after the presentations. And, thanks to our hosts Vantage Point, the morning will be entirely free and we will even throw in light refreshments to make the morning an even more enjoyable one for everyone.
*Unfortunately there is currently no disabled access as the lift is out of order
