About this Event

Cyber-crime continues to increase and rapidly evolve globally. The number of cyber-attacks across the world increased by 18% year on year in 2017, and the UK is the most cyber-attacked country in Europe, second globally only to the US.

Although there are attacks that are advanced and costly for the perpetrators, it is actually the basic, cheap methods that are still the primary attack vectors – sending malware to a victim via a phishing email remains the number one attack vector.

Growing regulations make it costly to ignore the risks. GDPR will introduce tougher fines for non-compliance of the regulations, which include security requirements, and for data breaches (of up to £17m or 4% of turnover).

The effects of cyber-crime are all too visible in the media, and the threats present a clear, present and ongoing danger to the vast majority of businesses.

This session will explore the topic of Phishing, the risks & solutions and social engineering.
