Defend your Business from Cyberattack

The scariest and most entertaining cybersecurity seminar you'll ever attend!

As business owners, we cannot afford to ignore the statistics surrounding the prevalence of cybercrime:

  • 64% of all cyberattacks in 2018 happened to small businesses
  • In 2018, nearly two thirds of UK companies employing 10-49 people fell victim to cybercrime
  • 60% of businesses that were breached went out of business within 6 months
  • A company is 9 times more likely to be a victim of cybercrime than burglary
  • The leading causes for cybersecurity breaches are due to email and remote working
  • Most commercial AntiVirus Software no longer offer sufficient protection against attack
  • GDPR has made all Data Controllers legally responsible for the safety of the data they hold and the ICO can issue significant fines if insufficient protections are put in place

Can anything be done to protect your business and your clients’ data?

Understanding where your key vulnerabilities lie is critical to defending yourself and your business against cyberattack.

By the end of the talk, you will have practical tips that will help you mount a serious defence against cyberattack.
