cyber-attacks on the rise - are you prepared?

30 July 2013

A report published today by the Home Affairs Select Committee highlights the increasing number of cyber-attacks made on UK Businesses and Government.

These attacks (which include theft of personal data, theft of intellectual property and attacks on IT systems) can be very damaging and expensive for those affected. They also affect considerably more businesses than you might think. (Don’t believe me? These statistics might surprise you!)

The report suggests that many of these attacks could be prevented by better information management and awareness, but that most businesses were not aware of what they could do about it – something that we can help with.

Over the next few weeks we’re taking a look at what you can do to prevent cybersecurity breaches and minimise damage to your business should they occur. In a series of short, free videos we’ll be looking at the proposed legislation in this area and how you can minimise your risk (looking in particular at legal issues around data protection, employment, insurance and contracts with your supply chain).

The first is attached here, but if you’d like the full set please sign up here or keep an eye our website for more information!
