With the likes of the HMRC, Royal Mail and other scams becoming more common; more of us working online than ever before and the easing of lockdown restrictions allowing us to work in shared/public spaces again, this workshop will focus on essential information security principles required to keep your business information safe both online and in physical spaces.

Topics we will touch on include cyber security, data protection, risk assessment and management, training and awareness as well as budget prioritisation. By attending this thought-provoking and insightful workshop, you will be encouraged to think about:-

the types of information security measures to consider implementing and which ones to prioritise first;

the importance of resilience and identifying effective recovery methods;

how to embed a security by design culture in your business.

How will attending this workshop benefit you?

By the end of the session you will:

Understand the common information security risks to your small business;

Identify key information security risks that relate to your specific business;

Gain useful information on how to build resilience within your business;

Identify 3 actions you can start taking to secure your business information.

Take the right steps to securing and protecting your business!
