Cyber Security Best Practice for Small Businesses


With cyber–crime in the news on an almost daily basis it is important to understand how you can take steps to protect both yourself and your business from Cyber Criminals.

Cyber attacks cost the private sector in the UK approximately £21.7 billion a year and, whilst the perception is that big business is the target, over 59% of SME’s have been victim to an attack in the last 12 months. Worryingly too, is that only one in four businesses that experienced a cyber breach in the last 12 months, have provided any cyber security training to their staff.

Understandably online security can feel complex and daunting to tackle, but the risks and associated costs of a breach can cripple a small business in a matter of days.  This fully-funded seminar has been designed to provide businesses with an overview of the Cyber threat for business operations, online trading and financial business management.

 Join experts from the North West’s Regional Organised Crime Unit, Titan, two Sheffield University Professors who founded Samurai Digital Security and the NCC Group, amongst others, as they explain the issues currently facing SMEs in the battle to protect themselves against the threat of cyber crime and outline a simple pathway for you to follow to keep your business safe.


Our fully funded Digital Advisors will be available on the day to help you understand how to engage with Cyber Essentials.   

Refreshments and a buffet lunch will be provided.
