Cyber Security and the Small Business

Four in 10 small businesses report they have been victims of cyber-crime, with the average cost a jaw-dropping £8,460 to put right. Could you afford to become part of those stats?

Event details

Join the FSB for this bite-sized session led by Detective Superintendent Neil Jones, Director of the North West Cyber Resilience Centre (NWCRC), to help you understand the threats you face as a business, the impact a co-ordinated cyber-attack can have on a small firm like yours, but – crucially – what you can do to reduce your chance of being targeted.

During the session, you’ll also discover:-

  • The three most common types of attacks affecting UK businesses right now

  • The likely weak spot within your business
  • Steps to improve your chances of avoiding a costly attack
  •  Learn more about the role of the CRC nationally, and how GCHQ feeds into their work
  • How to access FREE resources to help you on your cyber journey
  • Ask the expert: a live Q&A with Det Sup Jones and his team from the NWCRC to ask any question you like on cyber security
