Cybercrime: Essential information to protect business – Update from event

After only launching on 7th December 2018, this briefing was held at the new business venture 49 in Lymington. Ivor Bowen from Hampshire Constabulary presented at this briefing on Cybercrime: Essential information to protect business.

Ivor spoke about the risks that can occur if you do not protect yourself and your business from the risk of cybercrime. He asked delegates to consider their business assets and their associated values which need protecting and to consider the impact that it would have on their business if they were to lose these assets or access to their systems. Ivor gave some astonishing figures to show attendees how big cybercrime is at the moment.

Businesses need to be aware of all potential threats and vulnerabilities and gave an overview of the most common cybercrime attacks along with measures businesses can put in place to reduce the risk of attacks taking place.

Attendees were invited on a tour of 49 after the briefing had concluded.

Thank you to 49 for hosting this briefing and to Appetite for Adventure for providing the catering.

      Hi Tom
      Thanks for your message. We do tend to do a Cybercrime update annually and will be doing so again in 2021 I am sure.
      We welcome guest speakers from member businesses, who can share their experience and knowledge, in exchange for getting promotion through our events programme.
      Do please get in touch via our email address later in 2020, when this situation is over, and we can talk about an event for 2021.
