Cyber scams are prevalent. We hear daily how they affect businesses globally, the astronomical threat and rising costs to deal with the aftermath. What should you be watching out for and how can you protect your business?

Presentation overview

Whatever business we are in we rely on the internet. We buy & sell; we contact our customers and use it for logistical support. However with all the opportunity it brings, it is important to remember the risks. There are criminals who will take advantage of the anonymity of the online world and deceive, hack and steal if the opportunity arises. This doesn’t mean your business should not use the internet but by implementing a few basic security processes and making staff aware of the threats you can make a significant difference to your chances of becoming a victim. This presentation aims to identify common types of cybercrime and ways you can protect yourself from them. You will also be able to ask questions and share experiecnes or concerns.
