Has your business been the victim of a cyber security breach yet?
According to government figures, 43% of all UK businesses identified a breach in security in 2018. It's a sad inevitability of the digital age, one which you have to adequately prepare for.
This breakfast event features front-line experts in cyber security and disaster recovery; experts who are ready to share their experiences. You will hear from those who have been attacked, those who work to prevent attacks, and even from those who have carried out such attacks.
Knowing what to look out for can make all the difference in preventing your organisation become part of 2019's statistics, or not, and what to do if you do fall victim to the criminals.
Attendees will return to their organisations with a greater insight into how attackers look for ways to get inside your network, what steps your organisation can take to mitigate against these vulnerabilities, and what your options are should the worst happen.
