Is Your Business as Safe as Your Home?

How confident are you in your ability to protect your business data? Are you fully aware of the legal obligations surrounding its security?  

The Growing Threat to Small Businesses: 

Many still believe that cyber threats are a problem only for the big players. Yet, statistics from Hiscox’s 2023 cyber readiness report tell a different story. The report shows a 50% increase over the last three years in cyber-attacks targeting the smallest businesses, with the frequency of such incidents now at 36%. These smaller firms, often with limited budgets and fewer defensive measures, are increasingly vulnerable, facing severe consequences when attacked. 

Let’s strip away the technical speak and put it in simple terms: Leaving your business data unprotected is like leaving your front door wide open for thieves. Imagine your most valuable possessions, whether it’s a piece of cherished jewellery or a family heirloom; this is how valuable your business data is. Without adequate security, you’re making it too easy for cybercriminals to take what they want. 

Proactive Steps Towards Enhanced Cyber Security: 

In response to this escalating threat, Invest East Yorkshire and Invest Hull have joined forces with NEBRC (The Business Resilience for the North East) to offer the “Keeping Your Business Safe Online” FREE workshop during Humber Business Week. This programme is crafted to provide business leaders with the essential tools and understanding needed to protect their customer data from cybercriminals effectively. 

Workshop Highlights: 

  • Safe Password Practices: Learn how to create and maintain robust passwords, a fundamental step in safeguarding your business against cyber intrusions. 
  • Understanding Data Breaches: Discover the real-world effects of data breaches on your business and learn straightforward strategies to prevent these incidents. 
  • Ethical Hacking Demonstration: Gain insights into hacker tactics through a controlled, ethical hacking session, designed to strengthen your business’s cyber defences. 
  • Interactive Q&A: Have your pressing cyber security questions answered and clarify any uncertainties during our interactive sessions. 

Who Should Attend? 

This workshop is tailor-made for business leaders seeking to gain a clear, comprehensive understanding of protecting their business from cyber threats.
