Cyber Crime & SMEs – A Board Level Problem

A Workshop for Directors and Senior Business Leaders

shutterstock_326084837Your business is under attack from organised cyber criminals who want to steal or extort money from you. You won’t know who they are or be able to see them coming.

You may feel it is unlikely to happen to you, there is already enough protection in place, you do not have budget, or are simply expecting someone else will look after it for you.  This makes you the perfect target for a cyber-criminal.

The latest Government Security Breaches Survey found that:

  • 74% of SMEs reported a security breach in the last year
  • For SMEs the average cost of the worst breach is between £75,000 and £310,000
  • SMEs are now being specifically pinpointed by digital attackers

Without appropriate action you are leaving the door open to organised cyber criminals.  Attendees of our workshops will leave knowing where their business is vulnerable to cyber-attacks and how they may be able to insure against them, allowing them to develop an effective plan to mitigate risk.

“Good real-life examples were easy to relate to. Excellent facilitator in Bruce. I like the way you gave time for the audience to provoke thoughts relating to their own businesses.” Scott Harrower, Roffe Swayne Chartered Accountants

“Enjoyed the format and hearing other attendee experiences and opinions. Very informative – lots of food for thought.” Martin Chessman, MGI Midgley Snelling LLP

“Bruce and Simon deliver a fantastic insight into workplace security vulnerabilities and how to keep your business one step ahead of the hackers. I’m looking forward to the next one” – Jamie Barlow, Hyped Marketing Ltd
