People & skills

Event description

This session will focus on cyber security for small businesses, and charities. We’ll delve into the world of cyber criminality, understand how small businesses are being targeted, and look at why anyone would bother. And just in case they do, we’ll also talk about protecting yourself. Without getting too techy. Delivered by Mark Moore, director of the SW cyber resilience centre… a police-led not-for-profit business that’s here to help.

Please note, this workshop will be held on Zoom. The online workshop format gives you the chance to fully participate in group discussion via video, ask questions throughout the session, learn from like-minded business owners, and build connections. Our online workshops work in the same way as our standard events, with a limited number of attendees, and an expert Delivery Partner leading the session, to ensure you’re able to receive personalised support. 

What will I learn?

  • How prevalent is cybercrime, actually?
  • What tactics are cybercriminals using?
  • What simple things can I do to protect my business?
  • What is a cyber resilience centre (and how does it help me)?

Who should attend?

Business owners, SME’s and charities concerned about cyber security.
