Cyber Security Workshop

Tuesday 9 February 2021
Online workshop via Adobe Connect

About this event

Cyber attacks pose a serious and very real threat to all businesses. The impact of cyber security breaches can be costly and hugely damaging, yet many businesses aren’t aware of the potential impact of a breach and what they can do to reduce the risk of this happening to them.

In this workshop, designed specifically for SMEs, the University of Nottingham in collaboration with DCMS and Ipsos MORI will guide you through a series of activities and discussions to explore the theme of cyber security for your own business. We want to hear your perspective on the cost of cyber breaches and how we can better support you to understand and measure them. In doing so, not only can we highlight tools and resources that are available to you now, we can also develop additional resources to offer you even more support in the future. 

No business is too small to fall victim to a cyber attack, so join us for this free event to learn more.

This workshop follows on from an earlier webinar on the same theme. It is not necessary to have attended the webinar to participate in the workshop. However, you may find it helpful to watch the webinar recording in advance.
