Cybersecurity is a subject that will not go away. Cybercriminals are still having so much success that the numbers of attacks are still continuing to rise.

That means cybersecurity is not something you can do once and forget about it. It is something your business needs to be continuously aware of. Even advice you might have heard or read a year ago might be old and out of date.

That need for up to date information is even more important for the heads of businesses.

On November 14th we are running a cybersecurity event for business leaders. The event is being held at Buckmore Park at will start at 07:30 and will run for 2 hours. There will also be some additional time available for anyone interesting in networking. We have secured 3 expert speakers to deliver actionable advice.

Why we decided to run an event

In the last year and a half, there have been many cybersecurity and GDPR events put on in the are. While they have all been offering some great information we felt they were lacking in one big area.

None of the events was speaking to the leaders of the business. That is why our cybersecurity event is aimed directly at the heads of the business. The theme is all about what is expected from business leaders when it comes to cybersecurity.

52 per cent of business leaders don't know what they would need to do in the event of a cybersecurity event. To us, that is a stunning statistic. It's not even the business leaders fault, it is just that the information isn't out there.

We aim to change that with our cybersecurity event. With our 3 speakers and a takeaway guide, we are confident that anyone attending will have a much stronger idea of what is expected from them regarding cybersecurity.

What you will learn

As a leader of your business, you will learn what is your responsibility to your data and any client's data you hold. You will also learn how to protect and secure your business data and how to recover your data in the event of a data breach.

Who will be speaking

We have arranged 3 cybersecurity experts to speak at the event.
