The purpose of this Lunch and Learn meeting is to provide Scottish Businesses with information on 3 essential 'cyber' aspects of managing their business, so that the impact of being targetted by a cyber attack or facing an internal breach are significantly reduced.

1. Listen to Government Advice on Cyber Security

Have you acted on the advice provided by the Government? Not sure if you know what the advice is? Keith McDevitt, Scottish Government Cyber Security Integrator will be presenting on the steps the Government are taking to make Scotland Cyber Resilient. In particular, Keith will be covering the lessons learned from the recent ransomware attack on the NHS, known as Wannacry. This event has accelerated the Cyber Security initiatives that will be delivered across the Government, Private and Voluntary sectors. The Cyber Essentials scheme is now a key requirement and participation is recommended for all sectors.

2. Train your staff on the perils of using Social Media

Are your staff members your biggest asset.. or your biggest risk? Come and hear from Social Media expert Gary Ennis as he outlines the main threats that your 'always connected' staff bring to the business. With over 20 years experience in the digital sector, working with small and medium businesses on a daily basis, Gary's an advocate for social media, but only when done right, and with an educated workforce who will help, not hinder business success.

3. Don't under estimate the cost of losing Personal Data

Do you know how much it will cost your business if you lose, damage or have stolen the personal data held on your computer systems. David Evans from CyberAggress will explain the new General Data Protection Regulations and how they impact your business. The importance of up front investment in cyber security versus paying the fines and recovering after an event will be presented. Also, Cyber Essentials is fast becoming a procurement requirement for Government contracts, the advantages of participating in the Cyber Essentials scheme for businesses will be presented.
