Event description

Description

For 33 years MWL Systems has been at the forefront of IT solutions and support, and we'd like to showcase to you the latest IT solutions to help your company thrive whilst protecting you from the ever increasing threats business' face.

The main focus of this event will be on data & network security and the new GDPR regulations that become law on the 25th May next year.

Britain’s businesses are being urged to better protect themselves from cyber criminals as a result of high profile government research into cyber security revealed that two thirds of UK businesses had been hit by a cyber breach or attack in the past year.

The cost to businesses amounts to billions of pounds – as an example, the ‘Bogus boss’ scam alone has cost companies over £1.6billion worldwide

Significantly, nearly seven out of ten attacks on all firms involve viruses, spyware or malware, which can be prevented using the correct technology. Both the internal and external threats facing any organisation’s IT environment are greater than ever, and companies are rapidly recognising that with the constant challenge of maintaining network security, adapting to new and ever more sophisticated threats and managing often unpredictable costs, they need guidance to help them along the way.

Businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on IT and as the requirement to work anywhere, anytime grows, so does the risk of a cyberattack. That can pose a serious risk to organisations causing system failure, loss of critical data and financial loss.

If you are an IT decision maker we will show you what you can do to combat these threats.

Join us on the 26th September. Nestling in 27 acres of Cheshire woodland, Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel is a tranquil country house haven offering secluded luxury within beautiful surroundings

Cyber-crime is an ever increasing threat within the UK and it is estimated to be costing the UK economy billions of pounds per year, and the costs to individuals and businesses are often staggering.

TITAN has a dedicated Cyber Crime team that works both reactively and proactively on significant cyber-crime investigations pursuing cyber-criminals.
