Protect yourself and your business from cyber crime by attending this presentation which will provide a non-technical overview of what you can do right now.

It’s important to recognise that, statistically, cyber crime and fraud now pose a greater risk than physical crime. All businesses, from sole-traders right up to multi-nationals, need to plan for when, not if, a cyber-attack occurs.  Businesses can be targeted randomly, but the good news is that with awareness training you can protect yourselves and your business.

This workshop will give you a NON-TECH overview on Cyber Awareness. Sam Hancock, an experienced Police Cyber Protect Officer, will cover areas that you need to be aware of and a number of measures you can take to help protect yourself and your businesses. The session will cover:

  • Device safety/protection
  • Passwords
  • Protecting your Data & Personal information
  • Risks of free or public Wi-Fi
  • Ransomware & Backups
  • Phishing
  • Sextortion
  • Current Trends affecting businesses
  • Intro to National Cyber Security Centre resources for SMEs
  • Benefits of CiSP and Cyber Essentials amongst other areas

Sam has worked in Crime Prevention for the Police since 2003 and the last two and a half years with Leicestershire Police as their Cyber Protect Officer. She is passionate about raising awareness of cyber crime and what we can all do to protect ourselves. To know more follow @LeicsCyberAware on Facebook and Twitter.
