programme event Programme Cyber Security

We will be joined by Jonathan Green and Jon Hudson from Durham Police Cyber Crime Unit to discuss Cyber Security.

As a new or start-up business, the last thing on your mind can be Cyber Security. Worryingly, criminals don’t give a second thought to this as they are constantly on the look-out for vulnerabilities which they can exploit. It doesn’t matter to them what type of business you are, what the nature of your business is and how long you have been established they prey on us not doing the basics.
