Organiser: University of Huddersfield & Digital Catapult Yorkshire
The University of Huddersfield and Digital Catapult Yorkshire are pleased to organise this free-to-attend Cyber Security workshop at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre on Wednesday 30th November 2016 between 16:00 to 19:00.
The continuous evolution of cyber threats poses great risks for all businesses and organisations using IT infrastructures. Cyber-crime is a multi-billion pound industry and no business can afford to ignore the threats. This workshop provides a background to the cyber-security landscape and highlights best practises which can help mitigate potential threats. Talks will be given from organisations facing cyber-security challenges, as well as from organisations providing solutions.
During this workshop, attendees can network with other local businesses facing cyber-security challenges, as well as those providing solutions. In addition, the University will also provide information on Government and University funding initiatives to support regional businesses in improving their cyber-security provisions.
The University is offering a free follow-up visit to SMEs in the Leeds City Region where a cyber-security expert will visit your company to assist in assessing cyber-security threats and providing knowledge.
The event will be held in the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, room 2/29. Further details will be provided after registering.
