Business Leaders

Four in ten businesses (39%) and a quarter of charities (26%) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months*.

However, only 13% of UK businesses are even aware of Cyber Essentials – which is considered the best first step to a more secure network, protecting you from 80% of the most basic cyber security breaches.

Of course, even that still leaves you vulnerable to 20% of the more sophisticated attacks, which are evolving and mutating all the time!

Understanding these risks is complicated but we are here to help, no matter what level your knowledge is.

Here are just some of the questions UK Cyber Week will answer for you:

  • How much does being safe cost?
  • What are the threats I should be worrying about?
  • How do I recruit the right cyber skills for my business?
  • How does cyber insurance work?
  • How can I convince the board to take this seriously?
  • What does a cyber attack look like?
  • What is the impact of a cyber attack?
  • Who are the hackers?
  • Other than data loss, what damage can be done by an attack?
  • What is social engineering?

Understanding the risks and the available strategies to defend your organisation shouldn’t be left to suppliers, junior members of the team or to chance – it's on you to lead this.

That’s why attending UK Cyber Week is an important step on the road to protecting your business.
