The Human Firewall - Countering Cyber Risk!
It is estimated that 90% of cyber-attacks can be prevented but organisations tend to focus on the technology and not the most effective defence – the Human Firewall. This event demonstrates how an organisations own staff can be an effective barrier to cyber-crime, ransomware attacks and data breaches.

This non-commercial event is targeted at SMEs, however it will be of interest and benefit to all organisations interesting developing staff awareness about cyberattacks. The presentations will have broad appeal for Directors and others with responsibility for risk, as well as anyone seeking to improve their knowledge and understanding of how their own people can be an effective human firewall.
