Cyber Security risks discussed at event for East Lancashire businesses

June 23, 2016

Nearly 40 delegates from businesses across East Lancashire attended an East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce event which highlighted the precautions and processes needed to ensure your business is cyber secure, and the risks posed by hackers to organisations across a wide variety of industries.

Hosted by Training 2000’s Cyber Security team, the event included presentations from Sarah Green, Cyber Security business manager at the Lancashire-based training provider, Karen Ullah of Daisy Group and Simon Whittaker from Sagar Insurances.

Highlighting the scale of the risk posed by cyber criminals to businesses within Lancashire and beyond, the event allowed delegates to gain a key insight into their own organisation’s security and how they could prevent a cyber breach, or minimise its impact.

There was also the opportunity to tour Training 2000’s Cyber Security Centre, including the fully iMac equipped ‘Cyber Lab’, break-out room and lecture theatre.

Sarah Green, Training 2000’s Cyber Security business manager said: “By holding this event, East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce have highlighted the very real risks which businesses face from cyber criminals and their ability to steal sensitive data and money – importantly this risk is not just faced by large corporations but by SME’s across the region.

“The weaknesses in an organisation’s cyber defences is often a lack of employee knowledge – it is critical that staff know what to look out for and how to act in the event of an attempted breach”.
