The UK Government estimate that cyber-attacks cost UK business £29.1 billion in 2016, with some 2.9 million companies hit by some form of attack. This has been a wake-up call for many, and the time has come for businesses to take their cyber-security seriously.
It’s believed over half of UK businesses have suffered a ransomware attack, and the repercussions are increasingly more severe with many high profile global attacks making the news, such as the Wannacry attack on the NHS and NotPetya that struck British advertising group WPP earlier this year.
We’re bringing together leading experts to share their professional insights into the latest cyber security threats, what you need to do to protect your business and how to prepare for changing data protection legislation.
Delegates will hear from experts from the Police Cyber Crime Team (Robert Pugh), leading law firm Browne Jacobson LLP (Helena Wootton) and Government backed accreditation provider the IASME Consortium (Chris Pinder).
You’ll also see a live Ransomware infection from leading backup and disaster recovery solutions provider Datto, as well as hearing from our very own Cyber Security expert, Chief Technology Officer, Sam Reed.
Sam Reed, says:
‘The cyber landscape and the way we process and store data is changing. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is being enforced from May next year, this means businesses need to plan to meet compliance.
By bringing together our expert panel of speakers, we’ll provide practical and impartial advice that will help delegates understand the growing risks they face, the steps they need to take to safe guard their business and staff and how best to prepare to meet GDPR.’
