Join Business Academy experts to find out why cyber security is critical for small businesses and what you can do to improve yours today.

One of the many advantages to living in a world where every device is connected is convenience. It’s incredibly easy to conduct work, manage your social calendar, shop and make appointments from a smartphone or device. That’s why it’s become second nature to most of us.

But, of course, the convenience of connected data also means that insecure systems are vunerable to attack. UK Government research indicates that 38% of small businesses suffered a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months, with the average cost for those that lost data or assets standing at £8,170. Taking action can significantly reduce the chances of your business becoming a victim of cyber crime.

Our expert speakers will start you thinking about reducing your risk by:

  • Backing up your data
  • Protecting your business from malware
  • Keeping your devices safe
  • Using passwords to protect your data
  • Avoiding phishing attacks.

You’ll get top tips for taking practical action, whatever the stage of your business or start-up.  You’ll also be able to find out more about a range of resources to help you create and carry out a plan.

Cyber security needn’t be a daunting challenge for small business owners. Take action to protect your business online, and you could save time, money and even your reputation.

Light refreshments will be provided, including tea/coffee (V/Vg/GF available) There are other catering options in the cafe/workspace on the ground floor of the venue.
