Cyber Webinar for Small Businesses and Charities – 19th July 2022

RESPONDING TO FRAUD AND CYBERCRIME

The South West Cyber Resilience Centre (SWCRC) is a police/private sector collaboration, run on behalf of regional forces and led by serving staff. It aims to make small businesses and charities more cyber resilient.

SWCRC is running a webinar on 19th July 2022 from 08:30 – 09:30, to teach local businesses more about how cybercriminals operate, and to encourage them to sign up for the centre’s free offer of guidance and support. The webinar is being supported and advertised by the South West Business Council and Business West, two of the largest business groups in the region.

SWCRC provides businesses with guidance on basic security, and the support to implement it, plus a bite-size programme on basics for those who need it. They also circulate a monthly update of the latest threats to avoid, and can provide inexpensive services like website and systems testing, using a network of ethical hackers.

The webinar’s content will include two keynote presentations from industry experts on how public data can be used against a business, and on the current research into cyber threats. It will also signpost SWCRC’s free support, in an effort to help participants better protect themselves.

Registration for the event is via this link. The SWCRC are seeking your support to publicise the Webinar as widely as possible via your networks, as a great way to showcase policing’s regional work to support the business community.

Further to this, if you would like SWCRC to draft specific content to assist, please contact them at enquiries@swcrc.co.uk and they will be very happy to oblige. Your marketing teams can also follow SWCRC on LinkedIn if you want to see and support future events; they are always amenable to providing a future bespoke session locally, in support of your own programme.
