Overview

Even though the headlines often highlight major data breaches in large corporations, the truth is that the vast majority of businesses being hacked are small. Why is this the case? Because small businesses are generally under-protected. If hackers can break into huge corporations, with all the attention to cybersecurity, what is to stop them from targeting smaller companies that can’t afford the same level of protection?

Attendees will be joined by Marco Leonetti from Utopia Hair who has kindly offered to speak to attendees about his business’ experience of being the victim of a real cyber-attack.  What he learnt and how he has protected the business from it happening again.

Through this workshop you will learn about the who, what, why, when and how of Cyber Crime. It will explore the effects of a data breach on your business and how to implement security strategies that don’t break the bank. Tim and Colin will also provide clarity on key cyber jargon, translating it into plain language that is understandable.
