Do you know the risks & potential weaknesses in your business?
Without doubt, one of the biggest threats to any business today is cyber crime; on a daily basis we hear about serious instances where businesses have become victim to online crime – and those are only the ones that are reported!
In a BBC report on 8th May 2016, they stated that as many as two-thirds of big UK businesses have been hit by a cyber attack in the last year. Most of these attacks involved viruses, spyware or malware, the Cyber Security Breaches Survey says. The survey also suggested that seven out of ten attacks could have been prevented, and added that only one-fifth of businesses understands the dangers of sharing information with third parties.
However, it’s not just big businesses that are under attack, indeed every internet-linked business is a clear target and evidence suggests that smaller businesses are increasingly the victims of such crime.
The June New Media Breakfast is delighted to welcome along Cary Hendricks and Ian Kerr, from ID Cyber Solutions, experts in Cyber Security. Under the heading ‘4 Hacks in 10 Minutes”, they will explain the issues of unsecured data and how people are the most vulnerable part of an organisation. This highlights the very issue that everyone needs training, not just security/IT staff.
It is a truly an eye-opening look at just how exposed your business might be to a cyber attack and where the weaknesses often occur. They will also offer expert advice about the steps required to minimise your exposure to this particularly costly and damaging form of crime.
Ian Kerr, Managing Director, ID Cyber Solutions has 25 years experience in brand protection and 30 years in the fight against Cyber Crime and Cyber Education. During this time, he has advised hundreds of businesses and business executives about the dangers of Cyber Crime and how to protect themselves and their businesses against the increasing threats posed by the internet.
Cary Hendricks, Global Operations Director, ID Cyber Solutions has worked as a Digital Crime Instructor for the Dutch Police Academy before entering the world of consulting and training. Cary recently delivered a Keynote speech at InfoSecurity Denmark, a session that proved to be amongst the most popular at the event.
We are privileged and delighted to have ID Cyber Solutions at the New Media Breakfast for what is certainly going to be a popular topic, so to be sure of a place, book your place as soon as possible.
