What is the workshop about?

More than 50% of reported crime now is either online or fraud related – and that is even though cyber and fraud are significantly under reported.

This workshop seeks to raise the awareness of cybercrime and fraud likely to affect small/micro businesses and those who are self employed.

We will cover the various types of incidents you may encounter, how to protect against them, how and when to report, and also signposting to a wealth of free services and resources to increase your knowledge, awareness and resilience.

Who should attend?

Quite simply, if you use email and the internet, you will benefit from this workshop – sadly, it’s now a case of #WhenNotIf, when it comes to cyber and fraud attempts either affecting you as an individual, or as a business.
