Join us for a free cyber security breakfast seminar, aimed at helping you understand ways to improve your overall cyber resilience both externally and internally.

Data security breaches are on the rise and are now inevitable, so preparation is the only armour to protect your data against the enemy.
Are you prepared should the worst happen? Protection of business and personal data is a complex ever changing issue. Intellectual property, financial information and client data require the strongest levels of protection from theft or attack from both outside and inside the organisation.

Whatever the reason a hacker chooses to attack, whether it is theft of funds, fraud, espionage or hacktivism, their evolving techniques are an ever growing concern for businesses striving to protect their information and assets.

Chris Philips, from the Regional Cyber Crime Unit (Tarian), Barclays Bank will guide you through the ?the current threats? and help you to keep your business safe from cybercrime.
