Are SMEs Key Targets for Cyber Scammers?


Thursday 15th Sep 2016, from 8:30am to 10:00am
Cost: Free

According to government figures, cyber-crime costs the UK economy £27 billion each year, and 22% of people believe that they could be targeted by fraudsters.  Yet at the same time, 32 per cent of people surveyed said they were not overly concerned.

Small businesses are arguably complacent about cyber security.  Perhaps they think they are insignificant, compared to notable hacking cases targeted at the likes of LinkedIn, Sony and Apple.  Yet businesses underestimate the value of the intellectual property they work with, particularly when they are acting as suppliers to much larger clients.

As cyber-crime yields more valuable returns, hackers are coming up with more sophisticated ways to trick us.  And in any system, the weakest link is always going to be the user.  Most of us are wise to basic phishing scams, but social engineering is still catching out many businesses.

At this event, KJG will bring together leading experts from the industry to demonstrate real life examples of organisations that have been negatively affected by cyber-attack, including the impact it can have on your business and reputation, and advice on how your business can protect and recover from such situations.
