With an increasing number of us working
remotely, a series
of free webinars run by the South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit (SWRCCU)
is aiming to keep us all safe online.
Computers, smartphones and the internet are integral
to modern business operations. Unfortunately, this reliance on technology is being
increasingly exploited by organised criminal groups carrying out cyber attacks which
can result in fraud, extortion and theft of sensitive data.
The sessions, which are aimed at senior leaders and decision makers of organisations across the South West, explore the steps businesses can take to ensure that staff are working securely when away from the office.
Each webinar focuses on a different aspect
of cyber security and discusses the simple, effective actions businesses can take
to build resilience to cyber crime.
